presumably it shouldn't take this long to format a 300GB Maxtor USB drive. The lights are still flashing on the LS and on the Maxtor. I presume there is something wrong. I have tried 3 times now with the same result and have turned the LS off in between.

The LS can see the Maxtor in 'usb details' and a usbDisk1 folder has been created but its capacity is 0 bytes and I can't copy anything to it.

Help appreciated.

Regards

R.

Maybe use a different device to partition/format your HDD?

presume that would need to be a linux device? The drive is currently formatted NTFS.

If I plug it in to a Revo running ubuntu would that do it? I am not very confident outside of windows!

Why shouldn't the LS do it though?

R?
