HELP!!! HDD Initialization

I just built my PC today and I installed Windows 10 Home 64bit on my Sandisk 256gb SSD. Once I installed that and everything seemed to be working, then I installed the WD Blue 1TB HDD and tried to initialize it. I went to Computer Management —> Disk Management —> And right clicked on the HDD and tried to initialize with the GPT partition. It gave me an error message saying “Cyclic Redundancy Error.” What does this mean? How do I fix it?

A cyclic redundancy check, or “CRC” error, indicates a bad spot on your hard drive. Why are you formatting in GPT? I wouldn't recommend partitions bigger than 2 gig if that's your reason. You may want to do a check disk scan for bad sectors and try to repair them. You may also want to return the drive and get a new one.
