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

The best way is to search the producer of you HD in WWW and search there for a low level format utility.
