Does it work with macs? i`ve used it on PCs and downloaded to macs, but I can't get it to copy iso from mac


If you have your drive formatted NTFS for the PC, the Mac will be able to read from the drive, but will not be able to write to the disc. To format it so that it will work cross-platform with both Macs and PCs, you will need to format it FAT32, and you will need to do it on a Mac, as PCs cannot format over 32GB in FAT32. Make sure you back up your data before formatting as it will destroy all data. Connect the drive to the Mac, turn it on, then open DiskUtility. You can find this in the Applications>Utilities folder. Then locate your drive on the left side of the window, and choose the drive by clicking on it. Then choose the Partition Tab. Under the volume scheme, change the drop-down menu from Current to 1 partition. Then click on the Options button and choose Master Boot Record (MBR) and click OK. Then under the Format menu, choose MS-DOS, or FAT. Then clcik Apply and OK, and the drive will format FAT32, and you will then be able to read and write cross-platform. I hope this helps.

You will have to copy the data from the Iomega drive.

You will then need to format the hard drive using the mac operating system so that the mac can read the file system. Unfortunately this means that you will not be able to use the iomega in Windows-based systems in the future.

Alternatively, copy the data off, and format the hard drive in a Windows environment using the file system FAT32. Mac operating systems can read this format. :)

How to install it on Mac

Thanks for your email. The Western Digital WD Passport comes formatted for a PC, so it does require that you format the drive so that the Mac can recognize it. First, open Disk Utility with the drive connected and running. Then, choose the drive on the left side, then choose the Partition Tab. Change the Current Partition to one, or the number of partitions you would like, then click Options. Here you will change the Partition Map Scheme to GUID, then click OK. Then in the Format Menu drop down choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled), then click Apply and OK. Your drive will now be formatted for a Mac. To format the drive for cross-platform use, make sure that you have backed up all your data from the drive as formatting will destroy any data on the drive. First, connect the drive to your Mac, and open Disk Utility. Then select your drive on the left side of the window and choose the Partition Tab. Then change the Current Partition drop-down menu to 1 partition and click on the Options button. A new window will appear where you will choose Master Boot Record (MBR), then click OK. Then choose Free Space from the Format drop-down menu, click Apply, then OK. Your drive will now appear unformatted. Then choose the Erase tab, choose FAT32 as the Format, name your drive (you will be limited to 11 characters), and click Erase, then OK. Your drive will then appear on the desktop formatted for cross-platform use, and you can copy the data you need to move to your PC and then connect the drive to your PC. If formatting is not an option, the you can buy a program such as MacDrive that will allow your PC to read and write Mac OS files.

I have a simpletech and i want to copy some files from mac to simpletech - it doesn't work - doesn't let me copy anything and doesn't send me any message - what should i do?


It could be a couple issues. The Signature Mini ships with FAT32, and the file size limitation is 4GB, so if you are trying to copy files larger than this, it could be an issue. Another possibility is that the drive is formatted NTFS, which the Mac can read OK, but cannot write to it. If you want to use the drive cross-platform, then you might want to set it up for cross-platform use. p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }div.Section1 { page: Section1; } To format the drive for cross-platform use, make sure that you have backed up all your data from the drive as formatting will destroy any data on the drive.

My Freeagent external hard drive doesn't show up on My Computer


Your Mac would have formatted the Seagate drive as HFS+ (journaled) format. If you have access to a Mac, copy your data off the Seagate to any Mac, then use your PC to reformat the Seagate drive in FAT32 format. Macs recognize FAT32 format, and can store data in it, but can't create the format. The Mac holding your data can store it on the Seagate in the FAT32 format, and you can then copy the files to your PC. Hope this helps.

You will never be able to format the entire 700MB of any RW media. This is because the formatting requires a file allocation table be created and this takes up a lot of room. The data stored in this table is for addressing file segments by cylinder, track and sector. If you have a floppy disk you will notice on the diskette drawer slide it states it is a 2MB diskette but when formatted you only have 1.44MB of usable addressable space. The same is true for any formatted RW CD.

Just how much space is available after formatting a RW disc on your system depends in part on your software. It is possible to have as much as 645MB of usable space on a RW CD. Every software program is a bit different.

I hope this helps you to understand why you see this downsizing of your RW CD's usable space after formatting.

You can also bypass proprietary software and just use Windows. You paste your files to the CD drive and you'll notice a new top section in the file window pane that is titled "Files Waiting to be Written". You have to right click the right hand side of the Explorer view of your drive and then select the command, "write these files to disk". You'll probably end up with more usable space by letting Windows format it for you in this manner. However, it does depend in part on your drive's maker.
