Sorry about that. I was talking about the offset. XP screws everything up. Thats why I always use a proper alignment via diskpar. The offset is 2048 in diskpar. They are then quick formated as NTFS w/ 4096 as the allocation size.

Why is it that Corsair loves the "Dildo" Design on these things? LOL!!!!

Excellent drives though. However I am still waiting on the USB3 versions.

I've still got one of the early 2G GT models. Still working fine, but I'm not a big fan of the casing. Too easy to lose the cap, and I know I'm not the only one who's reported that the innards are coming loose.
