Question about Computers & Internet
I have transfered photos and mp3's from a windows pc with no problems, however it will not allow me to do anything on my apple mac
Most likely the format is not supported by macs. Check whether if it's a NTFS formatting, if so a third party software is needed for the transder of data. Alternately, you could back up your files and re-format your disk to a exFAT or FAT32 format which macs will support!

I have to admit I haven't used a Mac since high-school, but I can tell you that my first thought on this problem was "file system".
Most external HD's are formatted to be used on a Windows PC, and many are even formatted as NTFS. If this is the case, last I heard anyways, Mac OS doesn't support NTFS.
My suggestion is to use either machine to format the external HD (**you will lose all data on it**) as a neutral file system. By that I mean one which will work on both operating systems.
I could be wrong about this, and Mac OS may support NTFS, but if that's the case somone will be kind enough to correct me.

TRY THAT EXTERNAL DRIVE IN OTHER PC AND CHECK IF IT IS RECOGNISED THERE, BECAUSE IF IT IS NOT RECOGNISED THERE ALSO THEN LIKELY YOUR CASING IDE CONNECTOR *** CONVERTER HOUSING HAS PACKED UP.
