Problem solved. What you have to do is plug it into a computer that it works with and disable password verification. Simple as that. I know it is not secured with a password but at least it works. On mac, anything after 10.5, you have to do this for it to work. Plug it in to an older os and disable password security.

When connected External HDD by USB Cable with PC then not detected




click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems also make sure the computers Ram and Cmos battery are securely seated
if this fails to fix the problem

you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps

Here is a 10 day free trial of a software recovery program that can be burned to a disk. You would then boot from that disk with your external drive plugged in, and after it loads the software, tell it to find all available files. When you find your files, copy them to your regular hard drive and reformat the external. Copy the files back to your external drive. Hope that helps some.

the problem is that your lacie drive operates using the NTFS (New Technology File System) under USB which is the standard file system of Windows. Apple mac is not interopable with native NTFS therefore you need to install a read-write NTFS file-system driver on your mac if you wish to use it via the USB connection.

an excellent free mac NTFS driver can be found here-

I would be tempted to format the drive using the disk utility whch can be found under applications and then utilities once opened choose your drive in the left hand window and the on the right hand side click on erase. Choose your volume format and name and then erase. Hope this helps.

How to install external hard disk for mac


Hi,

Jeena you can just connect the hard drive to the mac it will recognize it & it will install the drivers automatically.

Before using it you have to format the drive using the Apple's disk utility.

First, locate the 10.2 CD and start up the iMac using the CD (insert CD, restart computer, immediately hold down C key).
Do not click on the installer screen. Instead go to the Installer Menu (or Options) and select Disk Utility.

When that opens, click on the second icon at the top left, then click on Repair Disk. Watch the activity screen. If it does any repairs, you will need to click on the Repair Disk button a second time. This is to make sure it finds all the problems and repairs them. You want to see no reference to repairs made - which may mean you have to click on that button three or four times.

How much memory is installed on the computer? To find this, just go to the Apple menu at the top far left and select About This Mac. The window that opens will give you the amount of memory installed, processor speed and exactly what OS version you are running.

How much empty available space is on the hard drive? To find this, just open a window. At the very bottom you should see how many items and how much available space.

You can use the SMART to run the diag on your had drive from

http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/system_disk_utilities/smartutility.html

The additional tasks which can be performed by using disk tility can be found :

This will solve your problem.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

Drive Not Read By ANY Computer


Hi,
Before installing the Maxtor drive you need to take a backup of the software on the Maxtor. You then need to burn this s/w to a cd to allow you to install the s/w onto any Mac (or PC) you want to use the Maxtor with. If you don't enable the encripted mode then you don't have this problem.

If you didn't take a backup before starting then have a look on the Maxtor site for the correct s/w.
Cheers, robbo

HDD not recognized in XP Installation


if you are using it as a slave hard drive, you should be able to right click my computer, manage, then in next window double click storage, then disk management, then look for your drive, you can then look to see if its recognised, if not it will tell you that its not configured, and you should be able to right click on it and format it.
