    I bought an Express card from here: http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Apiotek/EC0003D/
    I connected an eSATA drive to it.
    I don't see the drive in Finder and I suspect I need to format it first.
    But I don't see an equivalent to the Windows Disk Manager.

    How do I format the new external drive?

    Disk Utility doesn't see it. But if I leave the card and disk plugged in (i.e. leave it alone) and then boot to Windows (bootcamp), it is seen by Windows.

    Format in Windows so that it is a FAT32 and then you can format in OSX for HFS

    I will try that ... but doesn't MAC have something as good as Windows Disk Management?
