THe "One Touch" devices are usually USB/Firewire... As such it should connect up to the Mac USB OK.. then, it should show up as a "Drive" where one could then, with the right software be able to transfer files to & fro without too much trouble.

My Mac OS X doesn't recognize my Maxtor One Touch

Try unplugging both the power and data cables from both the computer and the hard drive. Let the hard drive spin down. Plug the cables back in. It should become visible with no loss of files.

Maxtor Basics portable 320gb Mac to pc compatability problems

Hi Tys,

I had a similar issue with my Maxtor Basics portable 500GB drive. I hadn't formatted mine yet, but had heard there were issues, so decided to find out before I start. I even saw your post here looking for an answer. Finally, one of my friends told me the following solution, which worked fine for me:

Don't format the drive as any of the Mac OS Extended options, simply reformat it as MS-DOS (it should be one of the options in Disk Utilities when you choose Erase and go to the Volume Format dropdown list).

Your Mac should be able to recognise and use the drive in this format and it works for PCs. Transferring files between the two shouldn't be a problem.

A thing to note, though, is that these Maxtor drives apparently come ready-formatted as MS-DOS (mine did). But while my Mac recognised the drive, I couldn't copy files on to it. If this happens, erase this MS-DOS formatting with... MS-DOS. Don't ask me why this works, I'm not a Mac Genius, but now my Maxtor is trouble-free and can transfer files from PC to Mac and back again.

Hope this works out for ya!

Photo transfer

When you connect your phone to the mac via the USB does the phone appear on your desktop?

If the phone does mount on the desktop the easiest way to get them on and manage them is with iphoto (or ilife if installed) use the app to import the files. When importing find the phone and look for the images folder.

The manual way.
The mac should pick up most phones and see them as a hard drive. If it does mount on the desk top you can then open the drive and find the images. They are usually in the picture or image folder.

If you cannot see the drive on your desktop and you have bluetooth on your mac. you could transfer the images via bluetooth. Slower but they will get there. You'll just have to pair the devices.

As 'git1' said. If all that fails you'll need to let us know what make the phone is.

Maxtor access (pc and MAC)

Yes, formatting included erasing the drive and renewing the partition. If you want the drive legible on pc, but will be working in both environments, then you can do 1 of 2 things....

easiest, purchase MACDRIVE, it will allow a pc computer to see and use Mac items on the drive.

You could also transfer the content to another drive temporarily, format the drive in question to MS-DOS, then transfer all that content back over...using a MAC to do so.....

keep me posted..
