The two leads are

1. for the power of the hard drive (it takes power from your Mac to turn round
2. the other is for the data

so DONT worry.

1. I guess you will need to format the drive before you actually get to use it.
2. Try right clicking on the drive and see if there is a format option
3. Format the hard drive and now you should be able to mount it and put data onto it.

Hope that this fixya was of help to you :)

Best Regards
Alx

You have to partition your Verbatim Drive to work on a Mac. Go to Macintosh HD / Applications / Utilities / Disk Utility. When in Disk Utility select the 232.9 GB SAMSUNG HM250HI Media to the left.

Problems adding files onto the hardrive


This sounds as though the Iomega has got locked somehow.
Do a get info on its desktop icon and have a look at the lock checkbox. Also look at the write permissions while you are there.

How to i reformat a lacie 500gig external hdd


The Mac OS can't natively write to NTFS (it can write to FAT32 however). But if you install MacFuse followed by NTFS 3-G on OS X then you'll be able to write to your NTFS drive.

You have not yet formatted the drive to work with you MAC. You will need to use your MAC's Disk Utility to format the drive in order to write to the drive, but be aware that formatting will erase everything already on the external drive, so back up anything on the drive you want to keep first.

Lacie 320 GB Hard Drive acting as if full when it's not.


Simplest solution: back up the data on the drive and repartition it (which will wipe it). Otherwise it sounds like it could be a problem with the file tree or structure of the drive, the configuration files could be corrupt, some program could have stored temporary files in a hidden place that cannot be deleted without making the program delete them, etc. If you are on a mac, spotlight Disk Utility and use it to repartition. If you are on a PC use the search thing from the start menu and find a program called disk management (or something similar to that, you'll know it when you see it.) external drives are annoying. i kick mine into the wall periodically for good measure.

FreeAgent Drive cannot be Modified?


The problem with the compatibility between your external drive and your mac is that freeagent drives are formatted in NTFS and the Mac uses FAT32. Mac's can read from NTFS drives but cannot write to them. I'm afraid that the only solution is to re-format the drive in FAT32 format if you want to be able to write to it.
