    I have a G-Drive Q that I have partitioned into three drives. Well I don't know what happened, but now when I plug it in it doesn't show the partitions. In Disk Utility it shows the drive and the three partitions, but instead of them being drives with firewire icons, they look like dog ear'd pieces of paper. Please help! :confused: :confused:

    What format did you use? Maybe try (dare I say it) repairing permissions in Disk Utility as well as restarting. If you try opening these icons, what happens? :)
