I recently purchased a new Simpletech 1TB external HD to be run on a G5 IMac with the Leopard operating system. In order to set this system up to run on a MAC, the manual instructs me to open the disk utility, select the External HD, select Mac OS Extended for the format, click erase, confirm erase and wait for the HD to reformat. Whenever I try this, I get the following error Message:

Disk erase failed
Disk erase failed with the error:
Resource busy

I contacted Simpletech but the tech-rep had never heard of this issue. Any suggestions

iMac G5, Mac OS X (10.5.1)
