It may be written on a ROM chip on the drive.

Check on the BG computer: It may have installed something there when you first plugged it in, before you deleted it from the actual drive. In other words, Buffalo may have a "fail safe" hook now installed in your Windows machine that "fixes" any "disk problems" it "sees" on a Buffalo drive. (Go to the control panel and look in the Add/Remove Software application for recently installed stuff.)

Further to thorkelljarl's post ..

I have a number of disk utilities available from hard disk vendors.

You can get my old ones or follow the install instructions link for the later versions.

Of course if the problem is firmware, you may render the drive inoperable, but hey, you can always take it out of the case.



#### you can probably forget this post, as the disks have moved on a bit in the intervening decade !)
