Formatting such a large hard disk will take a long time, especially if you do a full format (not a quick format).
Just let the computer do its thing, don't turn it off.

File size limit for Buffalo HD 250 GB Hard Drive backup


The file is too large meaning that the size of that SINGLE file is too large. Your hard disk is probably formatted to a FAT32 file system, this results in a maximum of 4gb PER FILE maximum transfer. What you could do is archive it into a few parts using winrar and then moving it onto the disk, and when you need the file just extract the archive. Your problem isn't the total free space, it's the size of that file chunk.

Does not read on the mac


If the USB hard drive was formatted in NTFS on a PC then the MAC cannot read this hard drive.
If you format this hard drive on a PC in FAT32 file format then the MAC can exchange data between the MAC and the PC.
The MAC can read and write PC data to this hard drive.

HI guys, I found a solution to a similar problem with the buffalo portable HDD that I brought from my friend. I just changed the HDD cable with the cable from Western Digital My Passport HDD and all problems were sorted out. Physically the WD cable is bit thicker than the Buffalo HDD cable. So suspect the cable is the problem. Please check if this is the problem with your Buffalo HDD before formatting. All the best

I'm having problems with my buffalo mini station 1tb HD-PXTU2. It cannot copy files that are 4gb and higher. After trying to copy it, an error message will appear andf state that the disc has no spac left...


From My Computer the External Hard Drive can be reformatted.
I beleive the format is called TFMS, this allows a larger than 4Gb single entry to be inputted. It is probably formatted for FAT32 which is limited to 4Gb units

hi there, if you would like to format it, all you have to do is plug it into the computer, go to my computer, and right click on the drive. Then, click format. After that, click on the format button and let it be for about a hour or two. After it is done, the drive will have been formated.

Time for physical format ???


Did you fit the drive into the Buffalo drive case? If so, take it out and put it in your computer tower/case and format it from there. Then put it back into your Buffalo case.
Go to the Buffalo sight and see if your Drivestation needs a firmware update - there may have been bugs in the one you purchased.

use a program called Recova to try and get all possible data off the disc, or try a back up program. then using the formatting program off you buffalo disc do a physical format of the disc (it takes a long time). format your disk. (again it takes a long time) If you want to change from fat32 to nfts right click the disk icon ,select properties,format, chose to format in nfts, select quick format. if all ok re-enter your data. it worked for me.
