My MacBook Pro was running normally a few days ago but all of a sudden in the middle of a garage band session, I got the beachball. I then realized the whole computer was frozen. I have had this MacBook Pro 13" model for a few years with no problems and this is the first time this has happened.
When I rebooted the system I got the flashing folder with question mark logo. I booted up IOSX from the disk and ran Disk Utility; it couldn't recognize my hard drive at all.
I recently replaced my old 160GB hard drive with a Western Digital 320GB Scorpion Black HD. It recognizes my new drive but whenever I try and partition or erase the drive a window pops up saying:
Disk Fail: Input/Output error
How can I fix these issues?
