    external hd/partitions
    Not sure if this is the right place to post this but here..

    i have just partitioned my external hd into 2 partitions..

    1: 300 gig
    2: 80 gig, ntfs

    i partitioned them in windows

    now I'm on my mac and well i want to format the 300 gig in mac format but i goto disk utility and the external hd isn't showing up..

    My end goal is to have two partitions, one for mac and one for windows.

    Does the external drive show up at all in the Finder?
