I use a STARTECH duplicator and it converts mostly anything as long as you have the correct cable adapters. You must have an equal or larger target drive as mentioned by Roland. If the target drive is larger you may want to use your computer to expand the partition to increase the available space.

DIsk duplicators generally don't care about the format of your drive. They duplicate by track/sector. The only requirement usually is that the target drive be as large or larger than the source. As long as there is no surface damage on the source drive, you should get a good copy.

Yes, it can work if your source disk is in FAT, 16/32, or NTFS

External hard drive used on mac,how do i use it on pc?


You need to format this hard drive using your PC.
If the hard drive was formatted using the MAC then the PC won't see anything on the hard drive because the MAC uses a different file system that is not compatible with the PC.
BUT if you want to exchange files between the MAC and the PC then format the hard drive using the PC in FAT32 file system. The MAC can read and write to a FAT32 formatted hard drive.

I have a seagate 1tb that will only work on 1 computer.what can i do to fix this


Usually, incompatibility with an external drive is due to different file systems that the computer is able to read. You may have to reformat your drive into a different file system. I'm not sure what kind of computers you're trying to read/write with, so I can't give you the proper file system to format with. In general, most computers can read a FAT32 file system. It's not the most space-efficient file system, but it is widely recognized. To format a drive as large as yours, you may need some specialized software such as SwissKnife. I hope this helps!

My mac is reading my transcend storejet 25 mobile 320gb, but i cant copy files from my mac unto it


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.

My flash disc is unrecognized by the pc


Try inserting it into a different USB port, or try one on a different computer. If that doesn't work, you'll have to resort to formatting the disk to continue using this flash drive. (Formatting deletes all the data on the disk though).

How do I completely reset my external hard drive


1. You need to check how much free disk space is available on your laptop.
2. You need to check what duplicated files you have on both the laptop and the external hard drive and which is the latest version.
3. You need to decide to move the latest versions of the data files from the external hard drive to the laptop. This automatically delete these from the external hard drive. The older versions on the external hard drive can be deleted.
4. Now you need to check how much data is stored on your external hard drive.
5. If the amount of data stored on the external hard drive exceeds the available disk space on the laptop, then you cannot copy these files to the laptop.
6. If you have sufficient disk space on the laptop you can copy the data from the external hard drive to the laptop. I suggest you make a folder to copy this data to it.
You can now delete all the data from the external hard drive or you can format the external hard drive to make a clean external hard drive.
