Iomega Prestige 1 TB format PC?

can you try this.
Right click "my computer " the go to "Manage" and select "Disk Management"
Once there right click on the drive and delete the partition.
Then recreate th partition and let Windows format it for you.
The reason for this is that sometimes during the mass production of the drives the partition does not get created correctly and so when you try to format the drive it falls over
Hope this helps

It should be another drive (D, E, F whatever) and as such you put stuff on to it the same way you would put stuff on to your C drive.
