I have two of these drives plugged in and working fine, from what I can tell.
Problem is that when I run Paragon Hard Disk Manager (12) it lists both the external drive as:
File system: Invalid
Root entries: 16
Sectors per boot: 8
Sectors per cluster: 8
Partition ID: 0x07 NTFS
NTFS version: 3.01
Volume size: 465.7 GB
Partition size: 465.7 GB
Drives are in red. I also noted that when I plugged one into a Win 7 laptop it also gave me a warning, drive listed in red etc. both are running fine, one is a warranty replacement. They are slightly different models, but are doing the same thing. The old Partition Magic doesnt’ like them either. I figured it was the way they come partitioned from the factory as they both had WD bloatware on them.
Any Ideas? Windows XP disk manager doesn’t seem to have an issue with them.
