Plug In your external drive! if you have any data back it up!(you said it was new so i assume there little to none) Go to start->run type diskmgmt.msc In the bottom pane look for your external drive! If there is a partition, right click and delete! Now the drive should appear full black on disk management! If not delets any other partitionin the drive. (Make sure you are deleting the external drive partition(s)) Now you can create drives by right clicking on the drive and click create partition! It should bring up a wizard which gives you the option to format, set partition sizes and everything!! If you don't wanna go through all that check out a third party software called Partition Magic: http://www.partitionmagic.com/home_homeoffice/products/overview.jsp?pcid=sp&pvid=pm80 hope this was helpful, regards, babb
