    Hello,


    I have iBall M500 laptop (32 GB Internal support and 4 GB ram), in which I want to insert a 240GB SSD WD drive (SATA). When I Initialize SSD, popup window appear "The Format did not complete successfully" and became RAW. Now I can't format it.

  2. Windows was unable to complete format

    Hello Gypsy,

    If you're unable to format your SD card from File Explorer, I recommend using the
    Disk Management tool. Please make sure that you're signed in as administrator before following these steps:

    1. Right-click the Start button.
    2. Select Computer Management.
    3. Go to Storage > Disk Management.
    4. Right-click your SD card and select Format.
    5. Enter the Volume label, set the File
      system, and select the check box for Perform a quick format before clicking
      OK.
    6. Click OK again to complete.

    Let me know how it goes.

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Windows was unable to complete the format :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.

    Windows unable to complete format


    First of all, the drive on my laptop is DVD RW drive. I can use a CD RW disk in it, can't I?

    I put a new CD RW disk in and a window popped up asking me if I wanted to format and giving me two options. I didn't think I had to format a new disk. Anyway, I chose the option that allows me to add/delete and make changes to the disk. That confused me because I thought I was supposed to be able to do that anyway with a CD RW. At the end, it said Windows was unable to complete the format. So then I erased the disk and I right clicked on it and selected format again. Again, unable to complete.

    In Disk Management it shows as 577 MB RAW. I know this has to be NFTS, but how do I convert it.

    To be honest I'm so totally lost. I thought this CD was ready to use and here I am running into all these problem. *Sad
