We decided to buy a cheap Maxtor HDD for one of our older machines because the 10 GB Western Digital had cone capoot. I put it in, tried to format it under NTFS and install Win2k. Wouldn't work. We took the HDD back to Compusa for exchange and tried to format it using NTFS. Same thing. So, I tried Fat32 and it seemed to install fine. Now it seems like I'm getting bad sectors and shit. I put the HDD in another machine and I'm gonna see if it'll work now. I'm never EVER getting another Maxtor. I don't care how cheap-assed they are. I've had good luck with Western Digital so far. Also, my dad don't believe the hard drive is shot. When I'm getting messages saying I have bad sectors and it won't run with NTFS, IT'S BAD.
