If the drive was formatted using Disk Utility there is a very hidden
option for "Apple Partitioning Scheme" or "PC Partitioning Scheme".
The Apple Partitioning Scheme is the default. The only documentation
I could find on those options is a note that if you want to be able
to mount the drive on a PC you must use the PC Partitioning Scheme.
I suspect that the Apple Partitioning Scheme uses a different format
for the partition map which may not be handled by anything else.
