    I have a drive that I wanted to reformat to mac format. Its a normal 750gb sata drive and it works fine in windows and mac can format it in ntfs just fine and read and write to it but anytime I try and completely wipe the drive out by writing all zeros or intializing it to mac os journaled it fails. Anyone ever have this before or know of any solutions?
