Hi, I have an iomega Prestige 2tb desktop hard drive which i was using on a PC but now want to use it for my macbook pro. How do i reformat the hard drive for Mac? Thankyou


Connect it to your Mac and open Disk Utility. Find the disk in the left pane of the Disk Utility window, click on it, then click the Erase tab in the right pane. Choose your format, then click the Erase button. If the disk does not appear in the left pane or is grayed out, click the Erase or Partition tab first, then select the disk.

Note: the "MS-DOS" format is the FAT-32 filing system. You will have to partition the volume (Partition tab) to use it since FAT-32 cannot cover the entire drive in one partition (I think it is limited to 80 GB). Microsoft won't let Apple use an NTFS volume for Write operations, but FAT-32 can be read and written by both Mac and Windows systems. If you think you may want to use the drive to share files with the PC, make two partitions - one formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and a smaller one formatted as FAT-32.

I wan't to format a packard bell silver 320 GB disk. GHOST 8 will not make a disk to disk copy onto it, because there still are some data on it after i have del. all.


IMPORTANT: Go very slow and be VERY careful not to erase or format the wrong disk. Backup data on the computer you are working on to another place just in case.

In Windows:
Right click "My Computer" and select Manage
Expand "Storage" and select "Disk Management"
Right click on the disk or partition in the right hand pane and select format.
This will erase all data on the disk/partition and format it so you can save data on it.

Without Windows:
Boot to a Windows CD and select a clean install of Windows. When you are prompted to select a location to install Windows delete the partitions on the 320GB disk. Then select the entire disk to install Windows with the option of Quick Format. After you see the format complete turn off the computer by holding the power button. Now your 320GB disk is one big empty partition for you to use.

Please vote for my solution if it helps.

how can you set the computer back to factory setting without a disk ? , first is this a notebook or a PC ? if
its a notebook there are many drivers that also need to be installed , you'll need the operating disk to erase
the partition then reinstall the operating system to that new NTFS partition , if its a PC then you still will need
the operating system disk ,

1T external will not mount on Mac OSX. It worked fine but just stopped. Have tried other computers and cables but nothing. It is getting power. Model #MDHD10T-U2 Serial #JPA7470874


This needs to be formatted before it can be used on a Mac.
  1. Launch Disk Utility by selecting ApplicationsUtilitiesDisk Utilities
  2. Click on the active partition to select it.
  3. Click on the Erase tab.
  4. Select MS-DOS (FAT) from the Volume Format drop-down menu.
  5. Click on the Erase button.
  6. When Disk Utility is finished erasing the disk, click on the active partition and ensure that the Format field at the bottom of the Disk Utility window says that the volume is MS-DOS (FAT32).
  7. You can now quit Disk Utility.

I cant record


You'll see this message if you try to create a song but there's not enough disk space on the partition to create a song. Free up some disk space and try again. The manual is at http://www.tascam.com/products/dp-01;9,16,33,19.html under resources.

My dp01wth cd recorder says no more disc space when trying to rec


You may wish to first verify that you have indeed erased those songs (by choosing 'erase' in the 'song' menu - see page 18 in your manual) and not simply cleared out the fat partition. You cannot erase songs on the DP-01 from your computer, you can only do this in the DP-01 menus.

If you erase all the songs from a disk partitian the DP-01 is supposed to automatically create a new blank song. So the partition or the hard disk could have become corrupt because you say you aren't seeing any song there.

If you haven't already, you could try selecting another partition to be the active one (press 'menu', select the 'disk' menu, choose 'partition' and press the > arrow key. Move the arrow symbol to the partition you want to make active and press enter - see page 36 in the manual) to see if another partition works any better.

If the newly selected partition does work, but the original one didn't you might have to reformat the old partition. Re-select it as above, and follow the instructions to reformat a partition on page 37 in the manual).

If the newly selected partition doesn't work either, then your hard disk might be corrupted. At this point you could try a disk reformat (page 36 of the manual) during which you'll have to set the partition sizes. The disk format instrcution of page 36 will walk you through that too,

Hopefully it's just something simple and you won't have to get into formatting anything.

Good luck with it.
