HDDerase problems

#1 Post by Jibberish » Sat Aug 09, 2008 4:53 pm

I am trying to erase a sata drive and hdderase is not going pass the welcome page. i start off with a menu pops up called memory management, as soon as i start to run hdderase, i click the default(silent) one. then things all the terms and agreement stuff. after all that it just sits there. what is the problem? could bad sectors be preventing me from erasing or? because i had a problem with dban with badsectors as well. but hdderase only shows the top bar welcoming me to the hdderase and thats about where it all stops.
