I tried to reformat my well-doing Verbatim Model53018 tB external USB 3.0 HD with my iMac using the disc utility, to replace the fat32 by the mac fs in order to be able to store large movie files. I choSe 1 partition, named it and let the utility run, but it returned an error formatting the partition. Now the disc is no longer usable at all, not on the mac and not on the PC as the original FS is destroyed and nothing readable was written to the disc. All attempts to format with other FS or more partitions were in vain. Can someone help please ?
I use MC OS 10.6.8.
