Transcend produces different kinds of memory modules, including Random Access Memory, or RAM, chips for computer systems, USB flash drives and a variety of flash memory card formats, such as SD.


Transcend's flash memory devices are usually preformatted with either FAT32 or NTFS. Macintosh systems primarily use the HFS+ file system format.


You can format a Transcend flash memory card to the FAT format using the Disk Utility program on a Macintosh.


Insert the Transcend flash card into a card reader connected to the Mac.

Some Macintosh computers have SD card readers built in.


Open the Disk Utility program in the Utilities folder.


Click the flash card in the left column of the window.


Click the "Erase" tab.


Click "MS-DOS (FAT)" in the "Format" drop-down list.


Enter a name for the flash card in the "Name" box.


Click "Erase" to format the flash memory card to FAT.


Hope this helps

Hello Kinoshia,

It seems that Transcend external hard drive have different file system. This is because the Mac machine is not able to transfer the files on to external hard drive. Please format the Transcend external hard drive from Mac machine and then hard drive is ready to accept the data from Mac machine. The drive either has to be formatted for Mac( HFS & HFS+) or FAT32 partitions. If you want to use
Transcend external hard drive for both Windows and Macs than format the drive to be FAT32.

I bought a StoreJet 25M 640 external hard drive. When i try to use it with my MacBook Pro I am told I have to reformat the HDD. Is this right? How do I do this?


It is dependent on whether you are solely going to use the Hard drive with your macbook or whether you may use it on a PC as well. If you are going to use it with just the mac format it in Mac format if with PC and Mac format it for a PC.

You format the drive using disk utility which can be found by opeing up the applications folder and then the utilities folder. Open up disk utility and then on the left hand side select your hard drive, then select erase from the right. For Mac formatting under Volume Format select "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" then name the drive and then click "Erase..." For PC formatting under the Volume Format select "MS-DOS (Fat)" Remember reformatting will wipe any information from the drive.

Hope this helps.

When you want to exchange data between MAC and a PC the the storage device/flash drive must be formatted in FAT32 by the PC.
The MAC can read and copy FAT32 PC files, but if you format the storage device/flash drive that has been formated with the MAC, then only the MAC can read/write to this drive.
