5977Re: Problems with 300GB Maxtor
- May 2 11:02 PMThanks for the reply.
I've tried to format this drive 20 times now. I wait for over 1 hour
and than I hear the drive stops, but the blinks stays just the same.
The NSLU2 freezes and I can't get in contact with it.
My question is: has the uNSLUng people done something to the OS to
support drives over 250GB? And is there anyone else that has had this
kind of problems?
