Hi I added a new HDD to my PC via SATA and now I can't even initialize it. When I try to initialize, a message shows saying the disk is write protected. I need a solution.

Load the Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) window.
Is that HDD listed there along with the other HDD(s) that is currently in your computer?
If you know how to do it, submit an image of your Disk Management window.

Okay, here you go. But this time, when i tried to initialize disk, the message was: failed due to fatal device error.

Yeah, I tried creating partitions. But one partition was created successfully but the second try ended up with a message that there was a critical device error. I think the HDD is faulty. I'm gonna see if I can try another one.
