external hard drive for Mac OS 9.2

July 2, 2010 at 14:08:09
Specs: Mac OS 9.2.2
I need external storage. I purchased a Seagate Barracuda SATA (for PC and MAC) and encased it with a SATA case with USB port. I cannot initialize because the Disk Set Up utility doesn't recognize the hardware. How do i format this disk for Mac OS 9.2.2?

If you could format it within Mac OS X (Mac OS Extended), Mac OS 9.2.2 should recognize it. Or you might try booting with your Mac OS 9 install CD and run disk set up and disk first aid.
Those utilities might get it to work. Norton System works might work also if you have it.
