First off I would like to say that I am a brand new member and I look forward to being part of this community.

Ok well, I am having a problem. I bought an external USB hard drive, however, it is formatted for Windows NT.

I have tried using the "Disk Utility" application, BUT every time I try and do something it says "Not Responsing" and I have to FORCE QUIT the application.

How in the world do I get this formmated to Mac OS X?

Thanks!!!!!
