    is there anyway i can reformat a hard drive with a virus on it? i cant plug it into a computer or my xbox because the virus will ruin it. is there any way or any place that i can completely erase the drive without plugging it into something?

    Of course you can reformat with a virus on it. And what are you talking about "plugging it in?" How are you going to reformat the drive without it being in your cpu?

    Also, getting a copy of Norton Antivirus might save you the trouble of reformatting.
