Drive still Needs formatting

But it came in the box with the switch set to "fast mode" RAID 0, striped) not "safe mode" (RAID 1, mirrored), and the manual clearly says if you move that switch (to mirror mode) you have to re-format the drive.

It doesn't show up on the desktop at the moment, only in Disk Utility, as a single volume waiting to be formatted (after which I notice things tend to show up on the desktop.) You sure I don't have to do anything? Shouldn't see two "drives"? And is there a value to having it formatted so it can be read by a Windows machine as well? Methinks yes - if you format it as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) won't it be unreadable by Windows?
