    arh well il just leave it over night doing what it does........hope it works after all this...............came up with a warning saying some boxes arnt compatable with large hd's.............................

    I think its because you have used another program on the hard drive , i just hooked up the brand new unformatted hard drive and sky hard drive to my pc and pressed copy on the software.
