You will need to try formatting the drive. You can do this from the drive management section on the Mac.

SOURCE: Seagate external drive locked in "read only" ,was working fine...

This seems to happen when it's been connected to another computer. Are you running FreeAgent Sync? If so force a sync and the read only problem should go away.

HOW TO TRANSFER DATA FROM SIMPLE TECH HARD DRIVE TO MAC


Yes Mac and Windows use 2 different and incompatible hard drive formats. However, there are many files that can be opened between the two. Mostly media and some docs. Try uploading to somewhere like MS Windows Live Skydrive or simply email. Then download. This is a quick fix. I heard you could use file sharing, but that requires a network. Even burning to a disc should work.

How to transfer my life studio from one computer to another


Connect the external hard drive to the host computer.

This connection is most commonly made with a USB-style connector.


However, eSATA connectors are becoming more prevalent in the general computing market.

Plug the external hard drive into an electrical power source.



Navigate to the external hard drive listing under the "My Computer" window.

This is opened by double-clicking the "Computer" or "My Computer" desktop icon.


Double-click the external hard drive drive icon listing and navigate to the files to be copied using the provided navigation window.


Right-click the files to be transferred and select the "Copy" heading from the context menu.

Navigate to the destination folder on the host computers hard drive using the same navigation window.


Right-click within the folder and select the "Paste" option.

This begins the process of transferring the files to the computers hard drive.


This process takes several minutes to several hours, depending on the size of the files and the speeds of the hard drives.


A progress bar will appear to keep the user informed of the process completion status.


hope this helps

Hi,

It sounds like the enclosure you're using may be failing or the drive itself could be on the fritz.

Take the enclosure to your local PC shop and have the techs transfer the hard drive to a new enclosre. If it works fine in the new enclosure, buy it and be on your way. If not, buy a new external and transfer(or have them transfer) all of you files to the new drive as the old one is failing and ready for replacement.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Dropped external hdd 2.0 320gb now doesn't work, is getting power.


Hard Disks are generally VERY fragile, especially the external drives simply because the read/write head inside is a very tiny substance. your case suggests that when it dropped, the read/write head might have got broken, and which means....you might have to get a new one. BUT in a very rare case however..you can do a funny and pretty nice trick, just get another one of the same type (Exactly the same type), then get A Very Good Engineer, and tell him to help you to transfer the read/write head to the former one, just for the purpose of retriving your datas...then return everything back to its normal place. HE HAS TO BE VERY CAREFUL THOUGH!!!, so as not to damage the two hard disks!
(How I wish I could be there to fix it for you, cos I've done it A LOT before...lol).
Hope this solves your problem.

Mac not recognizing External Western Digital HD.


the problem is that your western digital operates using the NTFS (New Technology File System) which is the standard file system of Windows. Apple macs is not interopable with native NTFS therefore you need to install a read-write NTFS file-system driver on your mac.

an excellent free mac NTFS driver can be found here-
http://mac.softpedia.com/get/System-Utilities/NTFS-3G.shtml

download and install the software then restart your mac.
