Hey all, I'm new... Hi! I have a weird problem with my newly acquired, not so new 1.0GHz DP MDD. I just put a 500Gig Western Digital HD in and can't seem to make use of it. I have two HDs in the machine at present. One on each of the two IDE channels - both attached to the Master connectors. The new 500 Gig drive is simply for storage ( no OS ), and is set to Cable Select. Running 10.5, using Disk Utility to partition the drive to Apple Partition Map, I am presented with a single formatted partition of 465 Gig ( approx. ). The drive is visible through System Profiler, and mounts to the desktop. Here's the thing though... Get Info describes the drive as having no capacity, and no space available. Top and bottom of it is that I cannot write anything to the drive. When I try to do so, I get a "...not enough disk space" error. I can however create a new folder on the drive. Very puzzled. In thinking it may be a permissions issue, I set the drive to "Ignore permissions on this drive" ... no joy. Any thoughts?? All help greatly appreciated. Cheers.
