Thanks for your response.
are you 100% sure its a fujitsu hard drive - as my scaleo has a seagate it in (and they have utilities avaiable).
Open it up and take a look (or run a diagnostics program ie everquest)
Yes I am, I'm holding it in my hand and thats what it says.
Model Number MPE3084AE - JL ID: JW EFIP

I bought this myself new as a replacement drive for a Viglen Computer I was running at that time.
I know Seagate do their own version of this tool as do maxtor which I have.
Its much easier than using fdisk.
If anyone has the fujitsu support email address i can contact them direct.
