Well, if things have gone that far (new drive) then I would try using your 
disk manufacturer's software to do a low level format.  

Go the the manufacturer's website and do a search for their
diagnostic/test programs.  They usually have a low level format program
that will completely rewrite the drive and bring it to the state it left
the factory.
