Thank you so very much for reading this. I have a G5 2.7 PowerMac which came with 250 gigs of internal memory. Because I rip at Lossless (which uses a ton of hard drive space as you know - yes it was probably a mistake), I just added - novice that I am - an 80 gig Maxtor hard drive into the second bay. So, I'm ready to start using it and, fortunately, "About This Mac" recognizes it; meaning, the computer immediately knew it was there. But when I run disk utility to format it to understand "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)," it gives me the following error message: "Bad file descriptor." What does that mean and how do I fix it? I simply, humbly want to be able to use this drive to continue to rip at lossless onto it. A million times thank you for reading this and any of your thoughts.
