  Iomega (Storage device (Hard Drive, Flash, USB stick..))
  Mint (older version)
  Works perfectly
What works:

Can partition disk (comes with one large NTFS partition) with ext3, xfs, ntfs.

What doesn't work:

Had some issues for writing to the newly created ext3 and xfs partitions.

What was done to make it work:

Easily fixed in nautilus by changing permissions of the partitions.

Additional notes:

This is a portable 500 GB hard drive that requires two usb ports on your computer. Other filesystems not tested. Instructions provided with device indicate can also partition with HFS or HFS+ not sure which until I re-read the booklet; both filesystems probably would do fine. Any partitioning you can make on it should work.
