If the drive is connected via firewire, power the drive. If the drive powers and you can place your hand on it and feel it "spinning", and still it does not mount. Try a different FW cable. If still no mounting action, place your ear on the drive to hear any grinding or clicking. If the drive sounds to be operating normal, open disk utility.. Hard drive/Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility The drive should appear in the left pane under your computers hard drive. You should see the button to MOUNT it on the top right. Hope this works

Help! Glyph PortaGig 50 won't show up!!


Control Panel, Computer Management, Disk Management. Check that your Glyph is present. If it is present, does it have a drive letter assigned? If not Right Click and Assign Drive Letter.

If drive not present you should check power and data connections.

My glyph harddrive dont show up on my mac why?


If the hard drive was formatted on a PC computer in NTFS file format then the MAC will not recognise this hard drive.
If you want to transfer data between the PC and MAC then you need to format the hard drive with a PC in FAT32 file format. The MAC can read and write to a FAT32 formatted hard drive

I have a new lap top without cd reader. Also have product key for office 2003 pro but only on CD. How do I get it on my new lap top?


Hello.

Unless you can borrow an external CD drive with a USB connector, you would need to contact Microsoft and give them your Office 2003 key and they may allow you to download a copy.

Actually, it might be worth it to purchase an external CD drive. I've seen them priced from $20 - $100.

Hope this helps.

Take it back to where you bought it, and exercise the warranty, to get it replaced or repaired.

Took my hard drive out of my pc lap top because the mother board is fried and i bought the aluratek hard drive cover with usb connecter and mac compatible hooked it up to my mac lap top to transfer files...


The smart bit is irrelevant but you should be able to transfer your files off it OK.
I don't know how mac familiar you are but all you have to do normally is plug the drive in to a convenient USB port and plug in some power. (Some drive cases that don't have external power need to plug in to the computer with a special lead that has 2 USB clugs on one end.)
After 5-10 seconds the drive should pop up on the desktop, you can then open it and copy stuff off.
Where does this pop-up come from as I've not experienced one in years of Mac support.
