SOURCE: maxtor 1TB hard disk in the sky HD box failed

I would like to try something here. I would like you to hook the hard drive up to your computer either through the enclosure or better if you have a usb adapter that simply slips onto the sata connector. Once this is done listen for the tone of the computer recognizing the device. It doesn't necessarily have to be recognized as a hard drive. Now, open the control panel and open administrator tools. Open computer management and on the left pane near the bottom click disc management. All of the discs currently hooked to the computer will show is the right pane whether they are active or not. If the disc shows here than it is alive and can worked with. Right click on the disc in question and see if it gives you the option to "Initialize". Some of these enclosures that have their own firmware will sometimes de-initialize a hard drive that has been previously activated. If this is the case, then you can "initialize this disc once more and partition it for use. You will lose your data but the drive will be useful once more.

Hi, my ps3 won't recognise my 1tb wd external hard

The problem with the new 1Tb WD Passport that I just purchased is that it is a USB 3.0 format and apparently PS3 doesn't recognize that speed.

Haven't found a workaround for it yet, but all these people advising you to reormat anew Passport drive are wasting your time.

How to initialise hard disk

You should be able to do this through your operating system utilities, i.e. if using Windows (XP, Vista or 7) ensure that the Western Digital My Book drive is connected and recognised in My Computer, then either right-click on the drive and take the option to Format the drive, or else, right click on My Computer and select 'Manage' then open the Disk Management service and select your action from the right-click menu for the external drive from there.
An alternative would be to use a third-party utility such as Easeus Partition Manager Home which is free for non-commercial use, available from

Use the free partition manager form EASEUS. Convert the partitions #3 and #4 into logical partitions containded both in the same extended partition (you can have only one extended partition, but it can contain multiple logical partitions, each with its own drive letter asigned)
Now you can using the same EASEUS to split the patition you wanted.
