I hope somebody out there can help me.  I just got a new Seagate SCSI-2 
drive and it came formatted IBM (w/ an IBM partition table).  I would 
LIKE to format it for my mac, but nothing will let me since it doesn't 
have a mac partition table or an Apple driver on it.  So, the APPLE HDSC 
setup won't read it, and various programs I've downloaded haven't been 
able to format it or create a partition table.  I did use Symantec Tools 
and tried to create a partition map by hand, and now it recognizes the 
partitions but won't read the device yet.

I'm looking for a program that can create a new partition map AND 
hard-format the device, since it wasn't formatted even NEAR it's storage 
capacity.  But, I'll be happy with a program to do either CORRECTLY.  
Where should I look?  AND, does somebody have Apple's latest HDSC 
application?  My version is 7.1.
