I purchased a new Seagate Freeagent Goflex 2tb desktop drive. The aios does not see it at all. I tried formating the drive to NFTS I also did the r10 firmware update but neither helped. Any ideas how to fix this or recommend a different drive.
Ok. The problem may be that the new portable HDD came with software or driver. The software makes the portable drive look like an actual HDD under My Computer.
You will need to go into do the following: Start > right click My Computer > Manage > Disk Management > right click the correct disk > Format
Otherwise, you will need to install the software from Seagate that will remove your drive from displaying as a HDD.
kaliayev has a point.
If you have a virtual CD installed or similar software on the drive it might cause what you are experiencing.
Hock the the drive to your windows machine and inspect the partition structure using the storage manger, see if has more than one partition.
