  • Just Got A Macbook, Trying to Figure Out External Hardrive...

    To update, it's a verbatim and my problem is basically I can't get my PC to recognize the hardrive when I plug it in. It makes the noise that it plugs in but then I can't find it in My Computer or anything

        mainly when I plug the hardrive into my PC I can't even find it on the computer even though it makes the noise when it connects

          It should just be plug and play.

          Plug it into your Mac; go into Finder, and it should be recognized on the left hand side.

              Oh. Well, if you originally set up the external hard drive with your Mac, you may have initially formatted your External to Mac format (?) so the PC might not be recognizing it....

              ..then again, it's Windows. I dunno.

                    If you mean should you shut down when you aren't using it, or should you close the screen down and let it sleep, I would just let it sleep.

                    With regards to your hard drive, the only way that you'll easily be able to use the external HD between windows and mac is to format is as FAT32. The only limitation is that you can't have files > 4GB on it.

                        I like it, the speed, picture quality and battery life are what stand out so far. I can tell using the programs and things like that are gonna take alot of getting used to and words cannot describe how furious I'm gonna be if I can't get my music to the Macbook. I just dropped 130 bux on this hardrive and I'm extremely frustrated right now because in the process of trying to get shit on this hardrive I accidently moved all my physically uploaded albums to a different location and then updated my brand new Ipod Touch (like I posted in my other thread) and so it's updated without all those albums and I don't know how to fix that.

                          MIC, I have a program I can send you, it's called Mac Drive and it will let PCs read the mac file system, so you'll be able to see, and read and write to the external drive. If you want it, let me know and I'll upload it to rapidshare. It's not free, but I can send you the "full" version for free.

                            that would be incredible, if you could give me some kind of walkthrough of something too cuz I'm a complete noob lol but yes if you could like explain it to me and/or upload that, it'd be awesome...do you have aim? if so I probably won't be on 2moro at all till around like 10 at night but hit me up.
                            But before I do this I need to get my other problem resolved so I can export my full itunes library (something I also don't know how to do).
