Formating Error on Second harddrive

History

I just installed my upgrade kit (this) and a second harddrive instead of the dvd-drive. The Drive appears in the settings, but when i try to format or erase it i get the following error:

"wiping volume data to prevent future accidental probing failed "

i also tried to boot with the tools, but the same error occured

originally there was a 256GB Cruicial M4, now i added a 1 TB WD Red in exchange for the dvd-drive.

KlawWarYoshi,

That drive was not on the list of possible suspects. Now you know why.

machead3,

so would it work if i switch the postions?

KlawWarYoshi,

Are they not the same size? I will test tomorrow

KlawWarYoshi,

The one I looked at spec'd a 3.5 in drive,,, your OEM is a 2.5 inch… I think you'll also get overheating/battery life issues with that large of a drive.

machead3,

Kit says: Does not include hard drive. We recommend a 240 GB SSD, 500 GB 7200 rpm drive, or 750 GB hybrid drive. What drive did you choose? The problem could be the drive. Or the cable.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.
