New to Linux, Need some advice please.
An error occurred
ext3 formatting of sda1 failed.
the Hard disk I want to use is an IDE Maxtor Diamond Max Plus 9 250gb,
the jumper is set to master.
I have two drives and both display error messages.
I have a Samsung 160gb and that works fine.
is there a problem with the Maxtor drives?
I would be grateful for any help.
