I purchased a 1Tb Toshiba canvio external HD (USB 2.0), but cannot get it to reformat in disk utilities with the erase option; selecting mac OS X extended (journaled)-always gives an error message that the "file system formatter failed"; partitioning gives the same error message.
Any helpful ideas? thanks much
