Re: problwm using my external hard drive

Hey mate only thing i can think of is, on some external hard drives theres a switch on the side that write protects the data, you usually just have to change the switch over and it will work fine :-) all the best John

Can i transfer information to a mac

If the external hard drive has been formatted on a PC in NTFS file format then the MAC cannot read data off this hard drive.
The FIX..
Connect the USB external hard drive to a Windows computer and copy your data off this hard drive to the computer.
Then format the external hard drive in FAT32 file format. (the MAC can read and write to data to and from a Windows PC)
Now copy the your data from the computer back onto the external hard drive.
Now you can connect the external hard drive to the MAC and download your data to the MAC.

I want to take some programmes my hard drive and use them in my external hard drive.

There are essentially two types of data that are written to a harddrive.
1. Programs (such as Microsoft Excel) 2. Data that are created by the Programs (XLS files)
In order to "move" PROGRAMS, they have to be first uninstalled from the original harddrive; then reinstalled onto your external harddrive.
In order to move DATA, simply do a copy and paste from the original drive to the new drive.

External hard drive not recognized

Some of the externals have mapping issues in Windows.  Although the TB shows in devices, you may need to remap it (right click on My Computer for mapping options) and in some cases, changing the drive letter will fix your problem.  There's really no 1 definitive solution for these.  If you're unable to fix the problem by remapping or changing the drive letter, you can partition the drive to recover your data.  As far as the slow transfer rate goes, almost all externals are formatted in FAT.  This has issues of its own with safely removing devices and slow transfer rates.  I prefer to format my externals and flash drives in NTSF for more reliability.  Best of luck.

Malfunctioning WD passport that windows doesn't detect.

Inside the case is a regular laptop size harddrive.
Laptop harddrives are 2.5 inches across. (2-1/2 inches. Desktop harddrives are 3.5 inches)

I would suggest the external enclosure the harddrive is in, is defunct.
I would suggest buying a new external enclosure, and putting this harddrive in it. Then just plug the USB cable in, (As you did before), and download your data, to be ready to transfer.

You need an external enclosure that is Sata, and is for a 2.5 inch harddrive. These are relatively inexpensive.
Let me show you some examples:
