So I have an olympus m:robe 500i which uses the same hd as an ipod. I am trying to use an IDE adapter I got off ebay to connect the hd to my desktop so that I can reformat it. I posted on the m:robe forums where they seem to have a fix for this, but it takes them forever to respond back. I am having trouble getting the my desktop to "see" the hdd drive when connected with the adapter. Here is a copy of my post on those forums: Anyone know why the hell my computer is having issues even seeing the drive?
