new hardrive registers as 5.5 TB device
the new harddrive (750GB) registers on the machine as a 5.5 TB harddrive, and cannot be initialized.
all hardware tests from install dvd show no problem.
what can i do?
I've only run into this problem on drives that have been previously formatted MS-DOS FAT. Did the drive come out of a external enclosure? Is it new , used or refurbished? What formate does Disk Utilities say it is?
I would check the connections again. And did you make sure to format the drive first?
I ran into a similar problem with an 1,8" drive in a MacBook Air - it turned out to be a faulty drive.
Reformat the drive
