I bought this hard drive with bad sectors.After I converted FAT to FAT32
S.M.A.R.T. says that drive is bad.I also get message "Track 0 bad or invalid media".
Is there anything I can do?How about low level format.Bios on my Pentium 166
does not have that utility,Can I use one
on an old machine from 1991?
Fujitsu co, say that it is safe to run low level format on their disks,but does it matter which utility I use?
Thanks.

Yes, you can use any old utility you can find.
Do fdisk /mbr.
I doubt that you can expect results, but give it a try.
Try running Fdisk, delete all partitions and recreate them. Try formatting.
Go to the fijitsu site and see if they have a utility for their drives.
In any case, good luck !

If this drive is new enough to be SMART capable, is it still under warranty?

Track 0 bad or invalid will NOT be solved with mere fdisk.

Download On track disk go and reinstall your computer.

You can find this tool here ( fujitsu site) :

In my opinion, you give a bad disk reference.
