you could use Norton's wipedisk or another util that overwrites tho zero track. The drive will not find any partition info after that.

Several ideas

by GuruOfDos In reply to eide hard ddrives

Faulty Drive
Faulty Cable
Drive not recognised in BIOS
Drive controller faulty
IDE controller faulty
Overlay software locking the drive
Virus on your system
Drive 'locked' by OS or application
Trend ChipAway virus prevention set in BIOS

I could list a dozen more reasons, but these should give you some starting points!
