    Could it be anything to do with the way Buffalo have formatted/partitioned the drive.

    Buffalo has a habit of throwing odd software and partitions on their USB storage units. The first thing I usually do with them is reformat them to FAT32 (standard block size) and make sure there are no hidden partitions (through Windows Disk Management).

    Have you tried a repartition/reformat?
