External Hard drive partition problem

Hi All,

I have an external hard drive, which was originally split into 4 basic partitions. I wanted to join 2 of the partitions, so deleted/formatted them. They now show as two blocks of unallocated space. I have tried creating a new partition using one of the 'unallocated blocks' (they still shows as two separate entities rather than a combined block of unallocated space) and then 'extending the volume' to include the rest of the unallocated space. When I try to do this I get an error from Windows 7 telling me the operation cannot be completed. So I am basically stuck with x2 232GB unallocated blocks of space that I can't merge together. Any ideas how I can do this? I can provide a screen shot, but only when I get home as I am currently at work. Hope this makes sense and somebody can offer some advice,
