Yesterday my friend gave me his lacie external harddriver so I could put some of my music on it. When I plugged it in there was nothing on the harddriver but 1 program called 'start'. I assumed that I had to install that so I tried but it got stuck everytime. My friend told me to format the harddriver.
I formatted the hardriver but it now says there's only 200mb available on the driver.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem. I've tried to find the setup assistant for the hard driver online, but no succes.
thanks in advance and sorry for my crappy english

My System

Open Disk Management:

Start > in the search field type diskmgmt.msc

Is the drive detected with drive letter assigned? What size is the external drive reading

Is there any unallocated space listed? You can format the drive from here.
