Hi there ,

I have western digital 2.5" 320gb laptop hard disk that seems dead.

I connect the hard disk externally to my laptop .

I opened disk manager and message says : disk 2 unknown, not initialized.

When I click on initialize disk,  a message pops up device is not ready.


So the Microsoft disk manager recognises the disk, but it is unable to initialize the disk.

Is it possible to revive the hard disk and initialize it with some software tools  for windows 7 ?
