    Okay, so I have a Lacie/seagate 250GB external usb hard drive, completely wiped as NTFS-3g (used a program of the same name on my mac to format it as NTFS/don't have a Windows PC). I run the USB/SD Loader 1.5 on the HBC. It asks me to create a partition, and I say yes. All four spaces on the Loader say beside them "Cannot be formatted". [​IMG] . So, can somebody help me out? I read and tried a method somebody posted, to put a thumb drive and the hard drive, plug them both in, and if it sees the thumb drive, pull it out and hit format. I tried that and it didn't work. Please help, and all is appreciated. Thank you. BTW, I have tried Mac OS Extended Journaled and FAT32. Neither Worked.

    Hey, I posted this this morning, and yet nobody has answered it? theres like dozens of people visiting this particular subforum every minute, and nobody has any idea about what to do? The wiki is down, but if somebody can access it anyways, lemme know, and I will get you to check if my drive is compatible...I just tried zeroing out the drive, but I don't know how to unformat my drive on a mac. I will find a way and see if that works.
