    I got a new internal hard drive for Christmas as a media hard drive. I have 32 bit Vista. When I WD's instructions were just go to manage>Disk Management and format the drive. When I do that the drive will sit for hours and hours 'formatting' and only get to 2%, but won't give me errors and doesn't look like it will complete the format.

    So is it:
    A bad drive
    Something with my SATA
    Something I am fucking up?
