I have a USB hard drive that was used with my Mac Mini for media storage. I no longer have the Mini, so I need to access/format the drive for use in Windows XP, the problem is, XP will not mount the drive so that I can format it. I installed a program called MacDrive which allowed me to access the files and transfer them to my internal hard-drive, but it would not allow me to format the drive, all I can do is treat it as an OS X drive and create a new OS X volume while keeping the same filesystem. I need to format the drive as an NTFS filesystem. I tried to be as specific as possible. Hopefully someone out there has dealt with this problem before.
