    Have you tried using disk utility to format the drive? They might have sent you an erased disk - someone bought it, used it, and resell it after wiping it. "untitled" makes me suspect the drive is blank - does it show up in finder window as a drive? If you haven't been able to do anything with it then open disk utility and tell it to format the drive. hopefully this will work.
