Question about FireLite (USBFLB80) Hard Drive
Powerbbok G4 does not recognize Firelite SmartDisk
If your Firelite SmartDisk was formatted for a PC, and you are using the Mac side of the G4 it won't. They use a different format scheme. Need to load Parallel, bootcamp, or another virtual PC program, and then Windows. Using that it will recognize it.
If you know another Mac user that is using both sides (Mac and Virtual PC) is a quick way to retrieve data to move it. Be careful reformatting the FireLite. There are some more complex ways. Hope that this helps.
PS: I use a 160GB FireLite on my G4, MacBook Pro as well as my Tower and notebook PCs.
