I recently bought a 250 gig LaCie external Harddrie. It's great. So I wanted to partition it into 2 drives- one of 30 gigs in FAT 32 for Windows and the rest (200 or so) into standard HFS+ format. I used the silverlining software it came with, and even had to run OS9 to do so. After 11 hours of formatting it seems ok in OS9. But in OSX it only shows up as one 33 gig MS DOS harddrive. Where did the other partition and 200 gigs go?? http://forums.macrumors.com/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=1# I don't know how I can make OSX recognize the second drive/partition. If I can't can I use disk utility to format one of the partitions in FAT 32 and the other in HFS?? On the disk utility window the three format options are "Mac OS Extended", "Unix File System", and "Free Space" I don't know what any of these are! Please tell me what I'm doing wrong. Thanks.
