You are accessing the DOS command via your OS so of course your drive is in use.

Use the original install disc to reformat.

I am not familiar with external hd, but with macs.  It will not let you reformat a disk if that is the starup disk.  Instead of disk utility, you need to PROBABLY reinstall the os using a universal full install disk.  That´ll let you reformat the hd.

Hi, Bought a formac mini disc , ( no external power source ) picks up power via eBay port ( green light on formac mini disc shows lit ) Refuses to register on my computer. Help, thanks, Peter


Peter, on the premise this is new to you and you didn't buy it with stuff you want to keep ...

It may not be mounting/showing up because it's not formatted -- the computer may be seeing it, but it's not capable of reading it, or there's a problem.

This runs off USB, not eBay, ports -- and, as you say, does not need an external power supply.

If you're on Windows XP or Windows Vista, you'll typically want to reformat to "NTFS" ... the default specifications, if you're given an option, will work fine.

How do I reformat my 500gb external hard drive for my mac?


Well, you can plug it into your mac, and then open the applications folder on your mac(by opening the Macintosh HD icon first) and opening the utilities folder and selecting Disk Utility. Through disk utility, you can reformat any drive to Mac OS(preferably journaled.) so that you can use it with Time Machine, and the MAC OS.
