So I decided to make 2 HDDs from my ps3 consoles as portable HDDs. But I had ran on into some serious problems as my enclosure can't read them. So I decided to reformat them through direct SATA connection from the motherboard, but as soon as I saw it on disk management, these greeted me. Both drives show those messages. How do I fix this?

Sorry for my english, It is not my primary language.

You may need to clean them with diskpart.
In an elevated command prompt box, right click run as admin, type diskpart, then list disk, then select disk n where n is the problem drive. Then type clean, hit enter and let it clean the drive and then try to initialize in disk management and format.
