Unable to initialize new USB HDD RRS feed

  • Question

  • HELP!

    Have new 1TB HDD connected externally. When I try to initialise this disk I receive the following error:
    Data Error (cyclic redundancy check). 
    There is no drive letter assigned and I cannot proceed any further.
    Using Windows 10 Pro with latest updates.
    Every article I read assumes that there is data on the drive and not brand new drive.
    How do I resolve this issue.
