MAC can't read NTFS. Most items are made for PC, will this work with a MAC as stated on the box?
Most external drives are usually formatted just for MAC use.
PC's and MACs don't like playing together.

As an alternative, you can try making a new Time Machine backup from the files of the old HDD. Install Mavericks from scratch on the SSD and then transfer the documents needed back from the Time Machine.

I would recommend installing fresh OS X when upgrading from HDD to SSD anyway.

Here is how to make a bootable USB stick for installing Mavericks:

Burned boot to external hard drive, now external is local. Can I get it back to local? does I


when a hard drive dies , everything is lost and I mean everything
no recovery disc , files , folders e-mails , operating system --the lot
best move is to install a new sshd unit and change the bios to boot from the external hard drive
when that is done , you will have to down load all of the drivers for everything you use

Hallo, I have a LaCie Grand 1 TP external harddrive. I cant work in mine hard drive. I cant throw anything away i cant rename documents or put new ones on it. Some background info A few months...


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

Bought a Cipherwave external HDD 2.5, says on the box it is ok for Mac but it is not working. Any suggestions, should I format the drive on a PC and if so as what?


Boot from the mac cd, mount the drive and then format is mac osx extended journal... Or if you dont have the cd you can format in windows as ntfs, at least thenn you will be able to mount it!

Formatting my Freeagent 1tb external hard drive for my Mac?


the problem is that your western digital operates using the NTFS (New Technology File System) which is the standard file system of Windows. Apple macs is not interopable with native NTFS therefore you need to install a read-write NTFS file-system driver on your mac.

an excellent free mac NTFS driver can be found here-
http://mac.softpedia.com/get/System-Utilities/NTFS-3G.shtml

download and install the software then restart your mac.

Hi Doug,

The problem is that mac has a diffrent 0perating system to a pc the thing you doing by switching from mac to pc the external hard drive is conflicting with one another to make your external driver to work on your pc follow these steps. go into control panal,system,hardware,device manager,universal serial bus controllers,drivers then update drivers that should reconise your mass storage driver.
