Question about Maxtor BASICS Personal Storage 3200 (U01H500) 500 GB USB Hard Drive
I have had this product for some time now and only now have bothered to use it. I have followed the instructions given to me in the box, the untitled icon appears on my screen but i cant seem to put anything on it. I have opened the disk utility but not sure to go from there.
Tarah I have the same problem. It says the drive is there but I can't copy anything to it. I just bought it too >_<
Accidentally posted the solution as a comment..
but anyway I found the solution here:http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=SATA_Troubleshooter_-_Mac_OS_X_Installation_Basics&vgnextoid=a0a44a3cdde5c010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD#storage
but short version of it all:
Basicallyyou just need to format the drive by selecting it on the left in diskutility. Then select the erase tab. Then change MS-DOS (FAT) to Mac OSExtended. Finish by clicking erase.
