I can't format my Drive via USB connection on my Mac.I keep getting a spinning beach ball.

There is a known issue with Mac OS X 10.4.6 and 10.4.7 when attempting to format via a USB connection. When clicking "ERASE" in Disk Utility all you get is the spinning beach ball.

Solution: If available, use FireWire instead of USB, otherwise you will need to format using a Mac running OS X 10.4.5 or earlier.
