    it spins up, but when xp tries to detect the drive at boot, the drive goes into an endless spin....bzzzzbbzzzz....repetitive until xp gives up and quits trying to find it and loads the rest of the way, this process takes over 5 minutes though, but at the end, the drive letters still do not show in my computer but in device manager, it says drives are perfectly fine =\

    it will be clear whether or not you are about to format the whole drive or just the first partition.
