    A friend of mine gave me an IOMagic 4 GB portable HD, I figured i would start new and right clicked the little bugger, and clicked reformat, and it says it is unable to reformat, and now of course the thing wont work. The disc that came with it only seems to help if you have older versions of Windows, so I don't know what to do, Please someone give me an idea... -Thanks
