Question about SmartDisk FireLite 40 GB Hard Drive
Bought a new MacBook Pro today. Copied all my files from my old computer onto my trusty firelite FWFL40-N. Tried to plug it in and upload everything onto the new computer, but the cable doesn't fit into any of the ports. Help ;)

You will receive an error message when copying a file larger than
4GB to the hard drive if the drive is formatted FAT32. The FAT32 file
system has a file size limitation of 4GB. You may also receive an
error when backing up to the hard drive using backup software. To
correct this problem you will need to format the drive to NTFS. If you
are using Windows ME or 98SE, you will not be able to use NTFS.
There are some products that do not support the NTFS files system or changing their file system. If you own a FlashTrax/FlashTrax XT/FotoChute/PhotoBank/USB FireLite XPress, you cannot change the format of the drive to NTFS. It must be kept as FAT32 in order to operate properly. If you are using SOHO NAS via ethernet, do not format it to NTFS. If you have any questions, please contact technical support before you format the drive.
Warning: Formatting a hard drive erases all data from the drive. Please backup any data prior to formatting the hard drive.
To format to NTFS, open My Computer.
1.Right-click on the Verbatim hard drive, left-click on Format.
2.Select NTFS as the File System.
3.Place a check in Quick Format.
Once the format completes, you will be able to copy files larger than 4GB to the hard drive.

Sounds suspicious, have a look at other world computing, they have all sorts of work rounds for apple limitations. Have you looked in the disk utility to see if it is there? if so run repair and permissions.

The MacBook Air has one USB port. Most computer stores have many different plugs on the other end that will fit your SmartDisk. Most of the SmartDisk units use the mini USB plug. It is the same as many digital cameras use.
Tiger Direct, and MicroCenter also have many different adapters, and adapter kits to use on all kinds of USB devices.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if there are any more questions.
PS: I use a 160GB SmartDisk on all of my Macs, and PCs. Get way to move data without conflicts.
