    Hello

    Thank you for posting in our Q&A forum.

    A disk that fails to initialize can be caused by a variety of reasons, including the following:

    1. Viruses or Malware
    2. Bad sector
    3. Casual use of hardware
    4. Mechanical failure
    5. Data line problem

    The solution refers to this document:
