2TB HD , sector errors and slow response.

#1 Post by rameshwor » 23 Apr 2013, 17:50

I have a Hitachi LifeStudio 2 TB external HD.
In Windows, the HD doesnt run and windows gives error stating that the drive needs to be formatted.
And when tried in linux [ Fedora 18 ] the hard-disk response is too slow , even exploring the directories is slow and 'am not able to play movies from the HD directly [ VLC shows no response at all ] . but once the movies/songs are copied from external HD to local PC [ the copy is slow ] , they play perfectly well .
Few months back i had some partitioning problem with the same HD , and after some search/research testdisk finally saved me . :) I hope i can fix this one this time too .
Is it problem with partitioning ? or the HD is partially damaged :( ?
I dont care if it doesnt run in windows , but i want it to run well in Linux

below is the log file that might be of help . it indicates some block/sector errors.
