The 1TB version is not compatible with Ubuntu Linux

Feb 5, 2010
Review by  
Rated Show

Pros:Past products by this manufacturer have been excellent, I suggest avoiding the 1TB version.

Cons:A paperweight that uses power.

No listing on Epinions for the 1TB version.  I love the convenience of external hard drives, and have been happy in the past with this product, but this 1TB version doesn't seem to work with Ubuntu Linux.  It shows to be "locked" and no matter what I do to try to format it to a usable file system, it remains locked and I can't get it to change, format, etc.
