You should download the older v3.3 of HDDErase (size: 70 KB) and copy it onto an MS DOS or Windows 95/98/ME start floppy disk.
Here are the details and a download link: http://www.iishacks.com/index.php/2009/06/30/how-to-secure-erase-reset-an-intel-solid-state-drive-ssd/
Thanks very much! I was already trying to use version 3.3, but was burning the image to cd, not copying it to boot disk!
Hopefully I can now get this programme to work.
If you have software capable of editing an ISO image you can replace the v4.0 EXE with v3.3 and then burn your CD but if you have a floppy drive it's probably the easiest option.
Thanks for this info, I wasnt aware this could be done? Im guessing its just version 4 that is compatible with booting from CD?
Actually, I dont have a floppy drive, but have ordered one. Just out of curiosity tho, what software is good for editing iso's?

Having a FDD is probably the least hassle though. Just takes a little longer to boot and load HDDERase. I bought a USB floppy recently and have found myself using it often for these DOS boot disk type tools.
When i bought a HDD it was'nt formated, I formated in windows xp (quike format) and than replace my old HDD.
