I installed the hardrive ran the hd-hglan firmware updater, it runs
but at the end gives a msg "attempt ti renew firmware has failed"
i run it again and it those the same thing. I ran another utility that
gave me the same info as the ip utility, but it had a massege that
indicated that the hardrive was not formatted. If I cant do it through
the firmware updater, what program should I use to format the drive.
