Reformat Buffalo HD drives using OSX Disk Utility
Posted by UCS IT Support 4 on 05 September 2008 11:32 AM

The solution is actually that at Disk Utilty, the external hard drive has to be PARTITIONED first (even if it is to be used as a one single partition) before it is to be ERASED (or reformatted). Also, when partitioning, choose option and select to change to GUID Map to allow for format to Mac OS Extended.
