    I was trying to format an external hard drive through windows (right click, format) but it ended up getting interrupted. Now windows won't even recognize the drive. I've tried using a windows CD for boot up and deleting the partition and reformatting it that way, but the computer says it can't access it. Is my HD fried?

    Can you see the drive in Disk Management?

    Right click on My Computer, go to manage, and then click on disk management...
