I have an external drive I bought a few months ago for backups. I haven’t used it. There were problems partitioning it. Maxtor ships these formatted for Macs and it’s the consumer’s job to correct that!
Tonight I finally figured out what was wrong (I think) and began the format process. I’m going to bed now, but the job will continue.
Do you have any idea how long it takes to format a 500 Gb drive? I didn’t.
With all my digital pictures and the new Canon Xsi using nearly 20 Mb for each RAW/JPG image, I really need this now.
