SOURCE: verbatim Portable hard drive ? download entire desktop with applications ?

Don't know why you might want to do this, but assuming the portable drive is equal to or bigger than your system drive (C:), I would recommend you check out Ghost software (not sure of name) but this will put you on it. With Ghost, you make a mirror image of an entire hard drive. I used it to make multiple copies of entire PC's for classroom use.. i.e. Load one PC with all the OS and program software, and then connect other drives to the "Master" one at a time, until I had a classroom full of identical systems. Had to pull the drives, but since yours is already external, connectivity would be the only issue. USB should work, I would think.

SOURCE: verbatim 160 GB portable hard drive doesnt want to open IbookG4

first of all, if you don't have any info there, you should format it, always that helps a lot, but if you have some info and you don't want to format it, well, check it on a pc, if it opens, that means that the hd is fine and the problem is the connection, like renx said, check if you can plug it with firewire, or usb, for mac is recomended the firewire, and its faster, but if you have only usb, it should work fine, so check if you can see it on the desktop, and if not check the finder, maybe it has another name or change its position

SOURCE: I am trying to write files to a terabyte verbatim

Hello,

Most verbatim drives are formatted to by default to NTFS which is a windows file system. NTFS can be read and copied from on Mac but not written to.

You will need to offload the data to one of your computers and reformat it with the mac.

Apple, Utilities, Disk Utility.

Once formatted for Mac you will be able to read and write to the drive but you will need to add macdisk to the windows PC to allow it to read and write to a Mac formatted disk.

Step 1:
Problems with Verbatim portable hard drives vary depending on your model of hard drive, your operating system and your computer hardware. Some problems can include insufficient USB power output, the file system format, and potential overheating due to enclosure materials.

File System b> Verbatim portable hard drives come formatted for use with Mac computers. If you're using it with a Windows or Linux computer, you will need to format it to a file system that your operating system will recognize; Windows computers typically work with NTFS, while modern Linux distributions use ext4. If you have computers with mutliple operating systems, FAT32 is usually considered easier for all operating systems to recognize. Verbatim does not recommend switching a portable drive between PC and Mac computers once you've formatted the drive one way or the other. Adequate Power While most computers supply adequate power with one USB port, older computers can have insufficient power output. If your computer doesn't seem to be powering the drive, use of a Y-shaped USB cable, designed to be plugged into two USB ports, can get more power to run the drive. Additionally, consider trying different USB ports on the same computer; some USB ports get more power than others. Drivers b> Make sure that you have any relevant drivers related to the hard drive that you have purchased. If your drive didn't come with a setup disc, you can check the Verbatim website for product drivers. Overheating b> Of Verbatim's seven portable hard drives, four are enclosed in plastic; of the other three, one is enclosed in aluminum, one in leather, and one in rubber. While all the drives are tested to run well with their enclosure, metal enclosures conduct heat away from the hard drive and help to prevent overheating. Plastic, on the other hand, is an insulator, so plastic enclosures may contribute to heat buildup. Check plastic-enclosed drives for overheating and avoid leaving them plugged in when not in use.

Does the verbatim harddisk external portable 2.5" USB works on both windows and mac?


Yes. It's one of the features of the USB hardware interface,
and it's necessary for the Mac Operating System to be 'compatible' with the file-systems used on Windows computers.

You have to partition your Verbatim Drive to work on a Mac. Go to Macintosh HD / Applications / Utilities / Disk Utility. When in Disk Utility select the 232.9 GB SAMSUNG HM250HI Media to the left.

My Verbatim suddenly stopped working on my Mac OS


It sounds like your hard drive is damaged. Hard drives are very, very dilicate pieces of machinary. The disk is paper thin and any sudden jarring, especially dropping it creates a warp in the drive. It could also be just a mechanical failure. Unplug it to prevent further damage. Don't worry in many cases you can have the data retrieved from your hard drive by using this online company that I highly recommend:

DOES THE VERBATIM HARD DRIVE NEED TO BE FORMATED?


Many Verbatim hard drive models with a FireWire interface come “Mac formatted” – pre-formatted for immediate use with Apple Macintosh computers running Mac OS. They are formatted as HFS+, the preferred format when using the drive exclusively with Mac OS computers.
Note: A Mac-formatted drive will not mount on a Windows PC.
If you plan to use a Mac-formatted hard drive only with computers running Mac OS, you can leave it formatted as it comes from the factory. However, if you plan to use your hard drive with computers running Windows, or with both Mac OS and Windows computers, you should reformat your Verbatim hard drive before saving data to it. Generally, for use with both Mac OS and Windows you should format to FAT32, and for use strictly with Windows you should format to NTFS. More information about these two format types is given below.
FAT32 FAT32 is compatible with the following Windows operating systems: Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, Windows Me, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista. FAT32 can also be read by Apple Macintosh computers running Mac OS.
Limitations: Maximum file size is limited to 4TB. Furthermore, using the formatting tools included with Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista users will not be able to create partition sizes larger than 32GB (though they can access these larger partitions). This limitation does not apply to other supported operating systems. Furthermore, Verbatim provides a FAT32 format utility (see further below for download instructions) that eliminates the 32GB partition limitation.
FAT32 is a good choice if you’ll be using your Verbatim hard drive with older computers running Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, or Windows Me, or if you’ll be using it with both Windows and Mac OS computers.
NTFS NTFS is compatible with the following Windows operating systems: Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Vista. NTFS usually results in higher performance than FAT32, and will permit users to create partition sizes larger than 32GB, and file sizes larger than 4TB.
Limitations: NTFS is not compatible with Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, Windows Me, or Apple Macintosh computers running Mac OS.
NTFS is a good choice if you will be using your Verbatim hard drive only with one or more computers running Windows XP, Windows 2000 or Windows Vista. This is also a good choice if you plan to store files larger than 4TB, such as digital video files.
