I burned a dvd on my MAC book pro, but it won't play on Sharp dv-rw340 vhs/dvd combo. The disk plays on other machines, so I know it works. Any suggestions?


Hi there. I would suggest looking at your owners manual to see what formats are supported by your player. It may not support recorded dvds.

It's possible your USB slots have a lot of dust, or could be physically damaged and is causing shorts. If three USB drives have already been damaged, your best bet is to send the mac book to apple for inspection. If your warranty is up, or you're feeling adventurous, you can open the Mac Book your self and have a look at what's going on near, around, or on the USB ports.

I have a new macbook pro and want to copy files from my PC to my Mac. As advised by the Mac store I first plugged my MyBook into the Mac (which presumably formatted it and has set up Time Machine). ...


Hmmn. Far easier, I would think, to share the files via the network (if both machines are on the same network.) Check this link:

Using the MyBook would be faster if there is a LOT of data, though.

What OS are you running on the PC?

How can i get get WD "my book" hd to also work with windows


Some solutions possible:
(Optional: - First split the video in chunks <2GB to make them more compatible with older filesystems and networking technologies)
A) Copy the file over the network (e.g. using Windows Sharing on the Mac, or using File and Printer Sharing on Vista)
B) Try to do it via the MyBook.  This means the Mac must be able to write something and Vista must be able to read it.  You say you've "set up" the MyBook "for my macbook pro".  How did you format it?  What filesystem?  Mac OS Extended (HFS+) with Journaling?  In general, you need to install something on Vista to read the Mac's filesystem format (HFS+), or on the Mac to write a Windows format (probably best to use NTFS).  Examples of software like that are:    (Win) MacDisk <http://www.macdisk.com>, MacDrive <http://www.mediafour.com/products/macdrive>    (Mac) MacFUSE with NTFS-3G <http://macntfs-3g.blogspot.com/>       or Paragon NTFS <http://www.paragon-software.com/home/ntfs-mac/>
B2) If you've formatted the MyBook as FAT32, you're lucky.  Just split the movie file in chunks <2GB, copy them to the MyBook, copy them from the MyBook in Vista and join the chunks again.
(for splitting you can use e.g. HJSplit and its compatibles <http://www.freebyte.com/hjsplit/>) (also check e.g. "NTFS on your Mac two ways" <http://www.tuaw.com/2007/11/19/ntfs-on-your-mac-two-ways/> for an alternative explanation.)

One Touch 4 Maxstor 750 external hard drive installing on a macbook pro


If you have a hard-drive that is formatted as NTFS which stands for (New Technology File Ssytem), Mac OS X can only read the partition. It cannot write to it.

The trick is to use your drive manfacturer's disk-formatting software which will allow you to format your drive as one large partition. Formatting your drive as one large FAT 32 partition is the easiest way to make a drive so it can be used with both PC's and Mac's.

Another option is to use a third part utility so that you can read a MAC formated harddrive's from your PC. Here is one option: http://www.macdrive.com/.

Good luck.
