    You can use GParted (live ISO) to create and format partitions in most formats like Microsoft like and Linux like.

    In the Run box, type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter. When it opens see if the disk is listed and contains a partition. If it does, delete the partition. Then create a new partition on the disk and format it.

    With this tool/win prog you can do what you want with partitions and formats (Linux and windows)
    HDD and USB sticks
    Of course, provided that you do not have defective USB stick and HDD
    http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm

    to add
    If you make linux partition with Linux box/VU+.
    Windows does not recognize them.
    And therefore it is necessary to use this tool
    to restore USB/hdd with more than one partition
    If You want to re-use on windows machines.

    If Windows Disk Manager and Device Manager do not detect it then it is bunched. It Windows Disk Manager sees it as a foreign disk you can import it and then carry out the steps I listed in post #43

    Hi I would be grateful if you could help, I have upgraded my genuine VU+ Duo to BH 2.0.2 Rev B which is great. Unfortunately, I'm struggling to mount my 1Tb Seagate Free Agent external USB hard drive. The drive has been used previously with an Enigima2 box and is formatted correctly. The device is showing up in "Hard Drive Settings" as in standby and unmounted but does not show in "Device Manager". Within the "Hard Drive Settings" menu the green button provides an "Acoustic" option which is preset to "128" but no option to wake or start the drive. I have also connected the drive to my PC and confirmed the drive is running using Seagate Manager. Can you please advise how to wake and mount the drive. Your advice would be gratefully appreciated, thanks, John.

    To add to my previous message, I can also view the files stored on the drive through the "Scan Media" extension.

    At first, you have to give a power to HDD. Only USB power is not enough. Try external HDD power source, it will work. Format should be ext3.

    Hello to all,
    I have a problem on a vu + duo black hole 2.0.2.
    We are unable to do a hard drive detected 3to.
    First, we format the hard drive with the vu + duo and it ONLY created a partion +-800GB.
    In years two, we use EaseUS Partition Master 9.2.2. under windows have created a GPT partition (GUID) and have formatted the hard drive to ext3.
    Despite this the vu + duo do not always detected disk.

    Are there any telnet command to the blackhole that can perform more precise formatting.

    thanks
