I've took my 40gb out of my ps3 and put it in an external enclosure so i can use it as an external hard drive.

It's been working fine but now when i plug it into my laptop it recognises it as a new external drive and asks me if i want to format it, when i click yes it tries to format it but then says it can't be formatted.

Thing is my it works fine on my pc and the wifes laptop.

Anyone got any idea as to why it's doing this and what i can do to get it to work on my laptop?

Get a "HDD regenerator" and use it to fix the HDD. It saved my a... hundreds of times. Or download little bit more complicated soft called Victoria. :thumbsup:

Do not forget not to write or delete ANYTHING from that drive. Install this soft on your other drive nit the external one. And not FORMAT it otherwise you will lose you date.

Not that it's anything to do with this thread, but, 'Souljacker', are you an Eels fan?

Search and find Hiren's Boot CD which has not only HDD regenerator but also many other stuff inside. Boot from it and run HDD regenerator.
