You may not have been able to set it up at no fault of your own- it might have been a bad drive from the start. If you bought a new drive from this shop- it should be replaced at no charge.

Explain to them the probs- if this shop is in error the drive corp may set the right or drop them as certified sales/support for their products if they are trying to get over on ya..

If buying a used or the drive is older and out of warranty- well that is on you?
