Question iomega 500gb minimax usb hard drive compatibility


Hi,
Does anyone know if the Iomega 500gb minimax external usb hard drive is compatible with Linux Ubuntu 10.10, and does anyone have an opinion of the drive.
Would I have to reformat it to get it to work with Linux.
Thanks in advance all help greatly appreciated.

I would expect any USB attached external disk drive to work on a modern and well developed Linux distribution. Ubuntu 10.10 would qualify as one of those distributions. Iomega makes very good products. I don't see any reason for concern.
