    Hello,

    My PC:
    I have a Sony VAIO VGC RA-710G (Liquid Cooled, Runs Silent); P4 3.2 EE/HT, 3GB PC3200 RAM, ATI 1600XT 512MB GDDR 3, Vista Ultimate 32-Bit, Seagate 500GB 16MB Burst Internal (Ultra ATA) @ 7200RPM, Hitachi Deskstar 250GB Internal @ 7200RPM, Western Digital 750GB External @ 7200RPM, Sony DVD/CD DL R/RW +/-, LG DVD/CD R/RW +/- Lightscribe, Logitech G15 (Keyboard Illuminates and has a small LCD Screen), Bose Companion 5 5.1 Dolby Digital USB Speakers, Acer AL 2216W 22" WS LCD Screen and a Power Supply of 350:

    Situation:
    Regarding my External HD. I currently have "3" Logical Partitions. When I try to make a 4th, it reports as a Logical Drive instead of a Logical Partition. I am completing the same steps to accomplish a partition, but it just will not show as a partition and insists on making it a Logical Drive.

    So whats up?? Whats the difference besides the obvious?

    Thanks!

    How many more threads are you going to make? If I haven't solved your problem in the other thread, keep asking.
