1.0TB Hitachi Travelstar 7200RPM showing as 7TB in Disk Utility
I installed a 1TB Hitachi Travelstar drive in my 2006 MacBook Pro. The Disk erase will not erase the disk and the hard drive shows 7TB and not the actual 1TB. I verified with OWC that this drive is compatible with my MacBook. Tried chatting with support at OWC and they had me send the drive back and sent a new one thinking it was a drive problem. The replacement drive arrived and I am having the same problem.
Does anyone know why this is happening? In the "old days" I remember having to configure a jumper switch so that the drive showed as a master and not a slave drive. There are no jumper switches on this drive.
Any help would be deeply appreciated. Thank you in advance!
NOTE: When I attach this drive externally via the USB port, it will erase and initiate. Even after it's initiated, and then installed internally on the laptop, the same problem exists.
Is this a good question?
