    Partitioning an external HD


    So, I have ubuntu on my laptop and an unformatted external HD. But I am having trouble partitioning/formatting using the built in disk manager (System>Admin>Disks). I can't use the "Create" button to create partitions. I can see the drive, but that's it... Help.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in Advance.
