Why can't it play video on sumsung tv? Have tried it on two different Samsung and both say no contend, yet if you plug it into mac movies is there. Can you help? Model number wdbaar3200abk-00


Samsung TVs recognizes FAT, exFat and NTFS file systems while a USB storage device that works on a Mac is probably formatted with Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Copy the contents of the device onto your computer and then reformat the device using exFat. After the format is done, copy the contents back onto the device and your Samsung should now recognise your videos. This is a list of the media files Samsung can read.

Windows is unable to read the usb


When you formatted the drive for the Mac, you probably used the HFS format. Windows can only read NTFS or FAT formatted drives. You will need to reformat your external drive again. If you use a FAT32 format, all computers will be able to read the drive (Windows, UNIX and Mac - anyway). Note: the FAT32 option does limit the number of files in each directory and the maximum file size.

First back up any files that you have put on the external drive to another disc (your computer's hard disc, for example).
If you are using the M2 external disc for Time Machine backups, you should partition the drive into two sections. Format one to the FAT32 and the other to HFS.

The Disc Utility in OSX can repartition the drive and reformat it. However, sometimes it doesn't correctly format the new partitions. You may need to do some extra step, see http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~pcarbo/macnexstar.html for one set of reformatting steps. In Windows, there is a similar utitily in the Disk Management Control Panel. (Start > Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > Create and format hard disk partitions (Windows 7)) You can only format the disc to FAT or NTFS with the Windows utility.

Some third-party software is available for changing the partitions on a hard drive formatted for Windows use without losing the data on the disc. I do not know if similar programs exist for OSX.

Some versions of Unix have gparted which will also repartion and reformat a hard disc but can't keep the original data on the drive. (I've used the Windows and Unix partition managers, including Paragon Partition Manager which let me keep my original Windows data on the drive.)

I hope this helps.

Hi, I bought a Seagate GoFlex a couple of days ago and successfully backed up my Mac at home. However, when I went to use the GoFlex on my PC at university, the PC was not reading the goflex. Thanks.


Did you reformat the FreeAgent drive when you backed up the Mac? If you use Time Machine or other backup software for the Mac, you had to reformat the drive. If you want the PC to read the disc, it must be formatted in a FAT32 or NTFS file system. The Mac OS formats discs in the HFS+ (extended hard drive format) system.

Unfortunately, if you reformat the disc to a Windows compatible format, you will lose your current backup. The drive will be as a large media transfer disc but not for the backup images. This site, http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~pcarbo/macnexstar.html , has information on splitting the hard drive into two partitions, one HFS+ and one FAT32. Then you could have your backup on one part of the GoFlex and still transfer files from the Mac to the PC and vice versa.

I hope this helps.

Firelite is formatted for mac only, how do i reformat it to windows or back to the original?


If you are reformatting the disk on a Mac, then open the Disk Utility, then click reformat, and choose the format FAT32. If you have it connected to your PC, go to my computer, right click and select reformat, then choose FAT32.

DISCLAIMER: REFORMATTING AND/OR FORMATTING WILL ERASE EVERYTHING THAT IS ON THE HARD DRIVE. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU WANT BACKED UP.

Hope this helps!
