Re: har drive needs to be initialized before use
Is it an external or internal?
If its external, USB/Firewire power may not be enough. You may have to power on the drive to use it from an external source to use its full extent, as Windows might see it, but can't use it.
I may be wrong however...
If its internal, check its plugged up right, as that is unusal.
