Since a lot of mother board doesnt provide hard disk physical format utility any more, I wonder whether there is some programs to do this, which can support hard disk bigger than 8.4 GB, like 9.1 GB, etc.
Can anyone answer my question?  Thx!

dbrian,
I don't know if there is a size limit, but you can download a low-level format utility (Seagate Format v4) from here:

http://www.seagate.com/support/disc/drivers/discfile.shtml

Just enter the parameters for your drive, and it scrubs the drive as many times as you set it for.
Let me know how it goes.
Regards,
Ralph
