How to remove write protection from sony hd-e1


PC & MAC use different file systems.
It sounds like your hard disk is formatted as NTFS. NTFS will allow a MAC to read from the disk, but not write to it. You need to re-format it using FAT32 (if your MAC is older) or exFAT(if your MAC is fairly new)..
FAT32 will allow a maximum partition size of 2TB(when formatted from a MAC) and a maximum single file size of 4GB.
exFAT will allow pretty much any file size.
NB:Formatting a hard drive DELETES ALL FILES on the hard drive, so backup whatever is important before you re-format it.
1. Open Applications > Utilities
2. Choose you hard drive from the list on the left
3. Choose the "Erase" tab and choose your desired format (FAT32/exFAT)
4. Type in a new name..Click "Erase"

Sony external hard drive: Error message "USB Device Not Recognized"


It is quite likely the drive is failed. If it is quite new it should still be within warranty. Return it to your place of purchase and get them to confirm it's condition. If the drive prooves faulty they should repair/replace it for you.

Want to install new WD hard drive into my old computer


You say you see data on disks on your existing system, yet they appear blank when trying to install? Please try to dig a little deeper and find your setup file. Data wouldn't disappear unless your running NTFS now and the disks are FAT.

Hard disk corrupted


It's simple. I fixed it by taking the hd out and (optional) air spraying it. I then slid it in and turned my PS3 back on. After that it came up with the disk error, so I pulled the hd back out and started the recovery thing like normal. Here is the real fixer: a screen should pop up asking you if you want to format the hd, say yes both times. When it begins to do it, slide the hd back in and let it format. Then simply restart or let it restart and your set. It should boot up as normal. or
 reformatted it and then when he got home and put it back into his it asked him to reformat again and this did the trick. It's been working ever since. He called Sony and they wanted him to send back his hard drive and they would either fix or send him a "new" refurbished one for $150. I don't think so!!
