Hopper 3 won't recognize my EHD

I have a Seagate EHD - 150 GB - USB 2.0 w/ External Power Supply that I previously used today on my laptop and have had for quite some time. I have removed all the files on it and it is now empty.

Using 2 different USB cords I have attached it to the Hopper 3 in both the front and back USB ports.

The Hopper 3 doesn't even see it in there. The green light is on. It is running. I have shut off and rebooted the Hopper after being unplugged for more than 30 seconds. I have rebooted the EHD. I have turned the EHD back on after same time period. Still doesn't see it at all.

I have tried two different USB cables though i know that one works because i used it in my printer.

Need help!

Plug it back into the computer and see if there are more than 1 partitions.

And while it's connected to the computer, reformat it into a single partition DOS FAT drive.

149 GB... really? The max size for EHD is 2 GB.
