I just bought an external portable HD from BestMedia (Platinum MyDrive). The disk was formatted in NTFS. I tried to format it to Mac Journaled. This failed and Disk Utility sent a report. Then I tried to Partition it, using just one partition, in the options box I selected the middle option (formatting it for use on MACs). I got a report that the partitioning failed, but now the drive doesn't do anything anymore. It shows up in Disk Utility as 'disk 1', but all the options -such as partition or format - are greyed out. The info in the bottom of disk utility all say nothing, except for the first one (litteraly translated: point of activation: not activated). Can anybody help me reanimate my drive??
