Sounds like you have selected the already formatted drive... ie one that you named (Media Drive A, My music hd) already. Try clickin on actual drive icon in the app - it will have a name like Maxtor 233.8 GB 7yb8o5 - or (Seagate, or whomever made it).

Thanks,
Harry.

Thanks Harry. There are two entries on the left for each drive. I was choosing the bottom one. When I chose the top one the partition tab magically appeared. Thought I had tried every combination possible but apparently I did not.
