my wife tripped up the power cord on my powerbook g4, busted up the frame real beautiful like. with some patience i was able to make it look like new again, but then they started cropping up.... the odd song in itunes giving me a spinning beach ball, the obscure disk error trying to copy certain files... okay, so the drop gave me a few bad blocks. no biggie. i'll back up the rest (fortunately, only a couple crap albums and last years homework seemed to be messed up; photos and movies were safe), and zero the drive. i figure the s.m.a.r.t. thing will seal off my newly rottened blocks. well, disk utility timed-out about 20% through a zero-format of the drive. i am freaking too poor to buy a new hard drive.... i NEED this thing.... i can't be having the drive trying to write to bad sectors. given that i backed up nearly 60 gigs of files off this 80gb drive AFTER the fall, i know the baddies can't account for that much of the drive... but i can't risk having the drivehead sometime in the future hitting something it shouldn't and losing my work. what can i do??? why won't the zero format work?
