Hello,

 

I've got a Ministation Turbo 500GB.  I formatted it today as NTFS using the Buffalo formatter program.  The only choice was to use the physical format and it took over 300 minutes.  Now that it's done, the drive does not show up.  What's my next step?  Is it normal to take that long to format?  I have not entered a volume for the drive.  Thanks in advance.

 

Kyle

Hello,

 

I found the problem.  I had not created a partition yet.
