hard drive formatting issue
I am trying to upgrade the hard drive in my 2006 macbook. I bought a 500gb Western Digital Black hard drive. Physically installing it was simple but when I go to format I get some issues. First thing I notice is that it reads the drive capacity at 3.6TB. I have seen it be a little off before but not 7x larger. When I go to partition it I do .4TB (400GB correct?) and I get an input/output error. I have had the drive replaced under warranty and am still getting the same issue, I have replaced hard drives in the past without issues and have never had back to back bad drives. Am I doing something wrong? Any suggestions?
