Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
I have a wd My book, how do i make it compatible for windows and mac at the same time
Plug it into your mac, open "Disk Utility" select your Hard Drive in the list to the side, click "RAID" change the Volume Format to MS-DOS (FAT). Now unplug it, plug it into your PC, open "My Computer" right click your Hard Drive and click "Format" change to FAT(it might be FAT 32, or something else). Click "Format." This should work.
hope it helps!
