try windows 7 disk manager(if you on win 7)... it may just not be active... you should see it in the manager program if it does show up itll either be raw/need a partition... or not active, worth a look
were did you get your 1tb drive... how much was it...?
i just bought a 760gb external £43... argos direct
i just got seagate 1tb for £69 in tescos, its a 2.5" drive
there was a 1.5tb there for £79 but it was a 3.5" and had a hidden backup partition. i've had one of these drives before and the ps3 wont recognise it because it always sees the undeletable Backup CD drive first. cant delete the backup cd drive cos its not on the disk its on the controller card. (sucks).
i'd have got the 1.5tb if it wasnt for the risk of it having one of those undeletable Virtual CDs
the opartition was just comopletely gone, the drive wasnt recognised at all. since then i have assigned it a drive letter. and thats it its now showing as unformated raw data on drive G: thats as far as i dare touch it at the moment. dont want to risk losing the files.
serves me right for using my ps3 game drive to store other stuff.
