Hello all -


I just purchased a WD MyBook 3TB hard drive for storing our movies on.  We had our previous external hard drive (250GB) plugged into our Sony Blu-Ray player and it worked smoothly.  But now, I plug in our new hard drive, and the blu-ray player doesn't recognize it.


I tried re-formatting the hard drive as FAT32 (same as the old hard drive), but that didn't work.


The only noticeable thing I see is that the partition map scheme of the WD hard drive is "GUID Partition Table", and the old hard drive's map scheme is "Master Boot Record".  I went into Options in the Partition page of Disk Utility to try to change the WD hard drive to Master Boot Record... but it won't let me.  It's greyed out.  It's there as an option, but apparently not for my hard drive. 


What gives?  How do I get around this?  Thanks in advance for your help!

Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
