If you have a hard-drive that is formatted as NTFS which stands for (New Technology File Ssytem), Mac OS X can only read the partition. It cannot write to it.

The trick is to use your drive manfacturer's disk-formatting software which will allow you to format your drive as one large partition. Formatting your drive as one large FAT 32 partition is the easiest way to make a drive so it can be used with both PC's and Mac's.

Another option is to use a third part utility so that you can read a MAC formated harddrive's from your PC. Here is one option: http://www.macdrive.com/.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Nexxtech usb external floppy drive

The simple answer to your question is yes. The trick is getting the external floppy drive.

If you have one you should be able to connect it to you mac and simply drag the files on to your desktop. Depending what the files are you should then be able to still read them and save them on the mac in a new format.

It really depends on what format the files are and what app they where created in.

Floppy disks! I have not come across them for years! The process is quite slow!

SOURCE: LaCie 1 TB Hard drive won't boot

I lave lots and lots of experience with LaCie Drives (I have 6 of the 2TB models). Every, every, every time a drive fails or runs slowly, it is the power supply. I have now replaced 5. They run very hot (so does the drive), and fail pretty often. It looks like the voltage drops just a smidge, and access times seem to increase, i.e., the drive "runs slow". Then it won't boot at all, and the blue light keeps blinking. Fortunately LaCie has replacement power supplies in the store. Buy a couple extra. I am married to the LaCie drives now, or I would probably switch brands. I kind of guess that they know about this because I contacted the help desk, and he wasn't surprised. Maxtor has a nice drive, and the Calvary drive is $150 cheaper. A drive is a drive I guess. By the way, if anyone is listening, how about building a QUIET, COOL drive with and INTERNAL POWER SUPPLY? GOT IT? All the cords and power supply bricks make me crazy. It might be nice to see a stackable drive where the top of one drive mates to the bottom of another, carrying network info as well as power to the drive above. Hint, hint. We all are building systems with ungodly amounts of storage. Too bad the manufacturers aren't building drives with the durability we need.

SOURCE: External hard drives not recognized by MacBook Pro using SIIG eSATA II 2 Port ExpressCard-M

Fixed- I purchased one of the following esata cards with the JMB360 chipset and it worked in my brand new Macbook pro 17" right out of the box.   My other eSata from SIIG, inc would not mount any drives or accept any drivers.    So the silicon based eSata's must have some type of hardware conflict with Macbooks.  (P.S.  I purchased the one from Best Connectivity for $20).   These cards all use the JMB360 Chipset:

  • ApioTek (1 port card) (EXTREME eSATAII Express Card)
  • Best Connectivity (1 esata)
  • GWC Technology (GWC BS1020) (2 ports)
  • nGear (Moved to the Sil3132 chipset list. See my more recent post about this)
  • PPA Int’l (2 ports)
  • VC (an original brand of Vintage Computer Inc.)
  • Syba (1 Port)
  • Sunix ECSA24J (Discontinued)

How do I upgrade my macbook pro hard drive?


If this is the 2009 model with the DVD/CD drive, then you can add up to 8GB of RAM and a much larger hard drive. I have seen drives up to 1.5 TB, and they were not expensive (just over $100). Just search for an online retailer (or go to a local Apple service center) that specializes in upgrades for older MacBooks. You may need a special set of tools, and you can also buy a kit that will allow you to use your old hard drive as an external drive (but make sure you back everything up BEFORE you start to swap drives).

I'm assuming you mean it doesn't appear in Finder. Open up disk utility and it should appear there if you say the MacBook is providing power to the hard drive light. You may have to reformat or reset your Mac if you want it in finder

Hi,
if it doesn't get very hot, then everything's fine. Yes, you may try unplugging and see if it works.

Of course, it's better to call the Apple Support. Ask them about the problem and see if it is normal/not.

I just bought a Seagate 2 TB desktop drive for Mac and PC, it works on my PC but nothing happens on the MacBook


If the Seagate hard drive has been formatted on a PC in NTFS then the MAC cannot read and write to this hard drive.
To exchange data between the PC and MAC then the Seagate hard drive needs to be formatted on a PC in FAT32 not NTFS.

It's possible to clone to this drive, but over the USB interface, it will be very slow. Firewire would be faster. It's also possible to boot from it, but again, it will be slower than an internal. What you've described, however, IS possible.

Hi
you may face this issue because of differences between mac and windows file systems/partition table and security attributes that may disallow any further changes.

1-try to connect you HDD to a windows Computer and Backup all your files before loses any data(use more newer version of windows like windows 10 build 1709 windows XP is old/out of services and has many problems)
2-after a full backup in windows try to connect your HDD to your mac and format it via your MacBook
3- after formatting your HDD try to reconnect your HDD to windows and copy your files to HDD(windows has a compatible file systems that could read/allow/write mac file systems/partition and its attributes)

4-enjoy

best regard
