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
Hi there, I also have one of these and cannot get it to show in Disk Utilities, it shows fine on a PC but won't mount on my machine. Any ideas? The drive shows in my System Profiler when plugged in and lights up.
