Hello, I have no idea how, but I changed the capacity of my 320G Seagate External to 2.2TB+. I can't get it to initialize nor return to it's correct capacity. Any help please?

AFAIK, this bogus capacity is usually reported by the USB-SATA bridge chip inside the enclosure if it cannot detect the drive behind it.

If you don't mind voiding your warranty, then remove the drive from the enclosure and connect it to a SATA port on your motherboard. This will eliminate the bridge board as a possible source of problems.
