SimpleTech 250 gig external drive not recognized on MacBook


It could be formatted in a different manner. See if it is detected by your mac. Go to Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility and see if your hard drive is shown there. If it is, then the formatting of your hard drive is not compatible and you will need to reformat to be able to use it on a mac.

How to use it on my new computer


The whole point of having a "backup" disk-drive is to create one additional copy of all your files. So, if the "internal" disk-drive fails, you still have the files, on the "external" drive, and vice-versa.

Open "My Computer".
Connect the SimpleTech to a USB port.
Watch "My Computer" -- it should update after Windows detects the new hardware.
Open "My Documents".
Click "Edit".
Click "Select All".
Right-mouse click on one of the files.
Point at "Send To".
Point at the "new" drive-letter that Windows assigned to the drive,
and all the selected files will be copied to the SimpleTech.
