Most external HDs whatever their brand name...... contain within their case a drive made by Maxtor, Western Digital and so on.
Most of these manufacturers have small special programs which when downloaded and copied to a floppy will do all the formatting and even partitioning in a few seconds............... Should be worth finding out which make your HD's innards are from - and take it from there.
I haveformatted my external HDD but when I try to clone it with Ghost get a message to use this device select the appropriate driver.Select a driver that is the same as the controller the device is attached to. have no idea what to do
