cannot read one hard drive and the other is locked...
okay, mac 7100 with two hard drives. we'll call them I and E (internal and external). I has major problems and i would like to do a low-level format to it. However, I used some lacie stuff to format it and apparently it put some kind of lacie driver on it (?) it is the 7100 factory quantum drive. how can i put the original hard drive driver back on? i think this is my only hope for the system to recognize it.

ok, and on to hard drive E. this one is probably fine, and i would just like to initialize it. however, whenever i start up with a boot disk, it locks this hard drive and gives a message saying that the system is afraid it might corrupt it or something to that effect. needless to say, i can't initialize a locked hard drive.

any advice?

Did you try using Drive Setup to initialize the internal? (don't have it?...go to info.apple.com/support/downloads.html and type drive setup in the search field)

the external....maybe it will initialize fine through drive setup when the internal is taken care of.....
