I have a 320 gb acclaim portable hard drive. My mac doesn't read it, the first time I plugged it the lap asked me if I wished to format it and I said yes. Now it doesn't read it, what can I


You formatted the hard drive on your laptop in NTFS and the MAC cannot read and write to this formatted NTFS hard drive.
THE FIX
Format the hard drive using your laptop BUT this time format it in FAT32.
The MAC can read and write to a FAT32 formatted hard disk, so now you can exchange data between the MAC and the Windows laptop.

Yes, the file system is corrupted and will need to be formatted for the drive to work again. You will unfortunately lose all your data unless you take the drive to a data recovery specialist to recover the data but that can get get quite expensive to it's up to you.

Hai i have transcand stor get 320GB hard disk. my propblem my computer detect the hard disk but when i try to open that it asks "do you want format it?" what shoud i do?.


If the computer is prompting that the drive needs to be formatted, this means either the drive has become currupt (not likely) or that the drive hasn't been formatted or is an unrecognised format

if the hard drive was formatted on a Mac or Linux machine without choose Fat32 format, the drive will be prompted to be formatted under a windows machine

if there is no information on that drive, i'd suggest just formatting it

remember formatting a hard drive removes all information off that hard drive.

Plug that hard drive into another competer as a secondary hard drive and you should be able to save any documents or files you need. While its plugged into another computer you mat as well use that computer to format it. Just open my computer or computer and right click that drive and select format. I would choose the NTFS option and full format. cheers and plz vote

Format issue


If the hard drive is formated as fat32, and you are trying to move a file larger than 14 mb (i think) it will ask you to re-format the hard drive to NTFS
