I  recently purchased a Toshiba hard disk for my Mac book pro since my hard disk failed, when I try to format it using disk utility during set up, it gives me the following error : DISK ERASE FAILED WITH THE ERROR

WIPING VOLUME DATA TO PREVENT FUTURE ACCIDENTAL PROBING FAILED.

It's a new hard disk which has not yet been formatted at all. Could you please advise on the way forward ?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
