Question about Iomega Silver USB 2.0 Hard Drive
This is what I get when I try to run the Mac Disk utility:
Verify and Repair disk "Iomega HDD"
fsck_msdos(361) malloc: *** vm_allocate(size=1069056) failed (error code=3)
fsck_msdos(361) malloc: *** error: can't allocate region
fsck_msdos(361) malloc: *** set a breakpoint in szone_error to debug
** Phase 1 - Read FAT
** Phase 2 - Check Cluster Chains
** Phase 3 - Checking Directories
No space for directory (Cannot allocate memory)
Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit
1 non HFS volume checked
1 volume could not be repaired because of an error
You can use a software called g parted , you have to make a dos bootable , and then mount volumes to make the drive ready.
gparted will help you... try the trial version .if you dont susceed let me know.
