Thanks for your help. found out both HDD was bad. My 750gb Seagate was bad I'm not sure why when it was in safe keeping in a HDD cover but plug it in and it didn't even show up. the 120gb one showed up bad hdd so that's why I wasn't able to format the whole 120gb my other 80gb that was in a hdd cover didn't show up either. I guess I need to invest in a nas hdd
