    So a couple of days ago I was having problems with this drive that I thought I had fixed. The drive came up as unformatted in Windows and when a ran a chkdsk in the command prompt it said that there were boot sector errors. I copied the backup over the current and it seemed that everything was fixed. Unfortunatley, two days later, the current and backup boot sectors are now exactly the same, the drive is again coming up as unformatted and the chkdsk comes bad with an error saying that it can't continue in read only mode. So, do I need to just rebuild the boot sector or is this a tougher problem?
