Basically I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to computers or computer terms. I bought a Seagate Desk 1TB External Hardrive. It was fine when working with the computer but i used my old hard drive to play via my xbox 360. The xbox wouldnt recognize the hard drive. I went on my computer and reformatted the hard drive, only the allocation unit size was change to match my old hard drive. This took several house and finished saying "unable to format". Now when i go on my computer i cannot open the drive. When i double click on it i get the message, "unable to open, not formatted"...i click ok then it says, "format now?" so i click yes and then it says "unable to format". I have no idea how to sort this out. I went from a working hard drive that didnt work on my xbox to a completely unfunctioning hard drive! Any help would be much appreciated!
