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.

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

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.
I more information on my FAQ about recovering data from Mac drives on PC
Hope this helps FixYa,
