As you may have heard Western Digital external drives seem to play funny with Linux
I have acquired a 250GB WD Passport (WDBAAA2500ABK-00) and would like to format to use with Linux - possibly even as a persistant LiveUSB...
Has anyone de-cyphered how to format these little buggers?
Gparted and Fedora 13's Disk Utility can't touch it.
All I understand so far is that it has something to do with the Smartware they put on it to have it function on Windows/Mac.
Any help greatly appreciated.
Your biggest fan - Anthony.
