I'm trying trought gparted (doesn't list the drive) and fdisk (doesn't list the drive), in Windows I had tried replace the MBR info (error), EASEUS Partition Manager is the unique program that can list the drive, but show the error I/O.

When I plug in Sagemcom Device and format, then i put it back in my desktop just show me the samething.
Ok, again..HOW are you plugging it into your desktop? To the controller or via USB? And again, if NOTHING is even showing the drive as available/present/ready to partition, there is a problem SOMEWHERE. If the physical drive doesn't show up AT ALL, that is no "/dev/sdxx" device present, then it's either how you're plugging it in, or there's a problem. Even if the partition table can't be read, you'll at least see the physical device. What is the output of dmesg say after plugging the drive in? You can low-level format the drive with a "sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdx" command, which will blow away EVERYTHING on the drive, but it has to show up first.
If you want you can call me in Skype after 01:00am (Greenwich Time) and I share the screen with you and try all the ways again. I give to you all the access to my computer if you want.
No, I don't want to.
