Problem formating my ide 250 gb hardrive HELP PLEASE!!
i bought a western digital IDE HDD 250 GB for my 12in Powerbook G4, i placed it in an external enclosure so I could use Carbon Copy to copy my HDD on to it and then swap it out. however, everytime I conenct it to my powerbook, it says this device cannot be used on this computer. so I go to disk utility to format and erase it but its shows up as a 2TB HDD( which it certianly is not) and then jus freezes in the process of formatting it.
can someone please help me with this problem
More aboutproblem formating hardrive please
any input on this
Was gonna suggest it was formatted wrongly as MACs use a different file format to windows but if you tried to format it dunno, maybe grab some drivers from western digital and see?
