Default Mk1231gal

Hi all,

I have suffered the same problem as Grapez with a Toshiba MK1231GAL 120Gb.

I bought it on ebay, described as follows:

*120GB iPod Classic & Zune MP3 MK1231GAL 120Gb 1.8" Hard Drive * single platter 5mm drive.


However, after failing to get it to respond in the Vision M or my PC I later noticed the following disclaimer:

"This drive is NOT compatible with PC or MAC. This cannot be used as an internal/external hard disk for anything other than an iPod/Zune. You take all risk for making this drive work in anything other than an iPod/Zune."

Having failed to make any progress with it, I followed advice on several webpages and tried to format the disc with Windows Vista, 7, and XP all without success.

The disc powers up, spins, and sounds healthy but will not respond in my machines.

I bought this disk having read on this site that it works in the Vision M and messaged the posters who had claimed this but have not received a reply from them. I have a slight suspicion that I have been victim of deliberate misinformation perhaps to promote the sales of this product. There is no other explanation I can find and will probably have to sell it on eBay if I can find no new options.

I'd love to hear from anyone who has suffered similarly, particularly Grapez as your description is very close to my situation.
