WD My Book Studio 3TB Formatting?

Hi all

just purchased the new 3tb My Book Studio but i am having a problem with Formatting.

Everytime i plug in the HD via firewire it comes up as a folder not a HD on my desktop, plus when i open disk utility 

it’s not there so i cannot format.

i’m running Snow Leopard 10.6.8 on MBP 

any info would be fantastic


Sorted it :smileyvery-happy:

used the USB 2 connection came up as MY BOOK HD, reformatted

now works as a 3TB HD via firewire woo hoo! 

way to go dude
