    after formating you cannot get complete 512mb of data space. why because some space allocated to hold undo information and mainly for Restore functions. Normally you would get 498Mb in case of 512MB .
    But 440 MB is not bit acceptable. Format the drive full format option.

I CONNECTED THE EXTERNAL HD (HDS5C3015ALA632) UNDER WIN XP, NO PROBLEMS. THEN I CONNECTED TO ANOTHER PC WITH WIN 7, PC DOES NOT RECOGNIZE THE HD AND ASKS TO FORMAT IT. JEAN FRANCOIS BELGIUM


It is because your computer which is windows xp is not able to be updated to windows seven. And when you format it you will loose everything xp. But then you can put everything windows seven on it.

Want to use the drive with a mac and windows


To use this drive on both MAC and WIN, the drive needs a FAT32 file formatting system.

Before you continue, check to is if it isn't already FAT32 in which case you could already use it on both.

Windows doesn't allow you to revert to FAT32, if the drive has HFS+ (for MAC) or NTFS (WIN). The best option would be to format it on your MAC.

Double click on your MAC internal drive and select 'applications' > utilities > double click on disk utilities. On the left hand pane, highlight the drive to format. At the bottom of the screen, select 'options' and check MBR (master boot record) and then ok. Under the volume scheme, select current - You can then rename the drive, if you like and under format, select 'MS FAT' (the title of the option may vary a bit, but i'm sure when you see it, you'll know what I mean). Now select 'partition' and then 'partition' again.

Hope that helps and make sure you backup anything you wouldn't want to lose!
