Hi,
I have 2 NAS HDD`s that I ran on a buffalo linkstation in raid 1 that I retired as it started producing errors. However, I am unable to reformat the drive as it is not recognised in windows or linux. In both of the OS, the disk simply does not show up when plugged in via an external adapter or directly via sata. In fact, windows refuses to boot with the disk plugged in at all.

Is there any way of reformatting the hard disks to be recognised ?

It would appear that both drives are dead. There is a temporary fix for Seagate's BUSY (BSY) problem, but it will only allow you to recover your data. The drive should not be trusted after that.
I dont think that is true. Only one of the drives in my raid array got corrupted and the other was working just fine. But both cannot be read by windows.
