Did you use this drive on the Mac previously? I've had problems with some drives formatted under windows that were not seen on the Mac.

If you previously used it on a windows machine you may have to reformat it with the Mac.

Hopefully, You still have a Windows machine available to you. First Place the data on the drive onto a Windows machine. Reformat the drive on your Mac. Copy the information back on the drive. It should now work for you.

Need direction on how to transfer all my mac osx stuff to my rocstor..is this possible? If so how do I do this.


Use "Time Machine", which is part of OSX.
1] Connect your Rocstor drive to your Mac.
2] Open "System Preferences", and then click on "Time Machine" down in the "System" section of the System Preferences window.
3] In the newly opened window for "Time Machine" preferences, click on the "Select Disk" button to choose your Rocstor drive.
4] Click on the "Options" button to set any files/drives to exclude from backup.
The above is very basic directions for backing up to an external drive using Time Machine. You can get more detailed info through the Apple "Help" menu.
Hope this helps you!

Rocstor external harddrive disappears from desktop. Why?


click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or


if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver


sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable


just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems

if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps

I use all PowerPC Macs. I was just using the external harddrive last night and this morning at home. I traveled to a different place with it. I plugged in the Rocpro 850 and turned it on. There is nothing...


Try opening Disc Utility and verify the disc this will check to see if there are any errors with the drive.
There is software for Mac OS X called Disc Warrior which can also repair hard drives which have become corrupt. http://www.alsoft.com/diskwarrior/index.html

I have a new mac pro and I am trying to use it with a Dell LCD projector. It shows the homepage without any text and won't show anything else.


What do you mean by "shows the home page"? What home page?
Normally you will see your mac's desktop (or, on some models) you will see your desktop background without any icons. If that happens the projector is acting as an extended screen.
If you want to project exactly what you see on the laptop's make sure that mirroring is switched on in the monitors panel of system preferences.
