    I can't seem to erase and reformat my hard drive from exfat to Mac OS extended using Disk Utility.

    When I erase it says: "Disk erase failed with the error: Wiping volume data to prevent further accidental probing problem."

    I tried to re partition, and uses Mac OS Extended and it says: "Partition failed with the error: File system formatter failed."

    I have no problem re formatting it to MS-DOS (FAT)
    What should I do next?

    Cheers

    I used ifixit's unibody laptop dual drive, so it's connected internally. It's a spare hard drive that i wanted to use to expand my storage.
