My wife and I picked up a pair of these green drives this weekend and are having trouble tracking down the reason these won't format. The process hangs at 184 then sits for several minutes and will sprint up to a higher number and pause again. Now we did swap in a new motherboard as well so we could have 6 SATA ports available to us without the need for a SATA controller card so there might be a problem with the motherboard or there's a NasLite-M2 support problem. Both drives have the same format problem. The first is being formatted as I type this email, hopes aren't high that the drive will really be formatted properly at the end.

I haven't attached the existing four drives all of which are 7200 rpm drives and worked great with the old MB, so I don't know how they perform yet with this motherboard. There is a comment on the newegg drives page mentioning a hand during format but the OS mentioned is Vista. Thought NasLite used a low level something-or-other drive access and drivers aren't an issue.
So, anyone else use these drives with any success?
