Question about SimpleTech (SP-U25/120G) 120 GB USB Hard Drive

2 Answers

Can not modify

I connected my simpletech 120 g to a desktop but did not add anything and now I want to add something from my lap top--ibook G4 running OS X--and the error message says"my document can not be moved because the drive can not be modified". Is this only able to connect to one computer? If so how do I restore to only use lap top?
Thank you.

Make sure both plugs are connected to USB ports, the closest plug is for data transfer and the send plug is for additional power to run the drive. The shorter the cabe the better.

It is possible that your drive is NTFS which is Microsoft specific and may not be written to by the MAC system. To find out you can hook it up to your Windows machine and open My Computer. Then right click on the drive and select Properties. Then beside File System you should see the type of drive.

If it is NTFS than you can right click on the drive and select format. When it asks you which type to format choose FAT32 and Quick Format. Then you can write to it from the MAC.

MAC BOOK AIR,LAP TOP NOT ABLE TO BOOT NOR START


If nothing happens when you press the power button then the computer is most likely out of power - plug a charger in and it should work. If it still doesn't you might want to get it checked at a service provider. If something happens when you press the power button but the computer doesn't turn on, then please provide more information, explaining exactly what happens so that I can help you.

Sorry, but Mac laptops and desktops do not have "CMOS" or "BIOS" settings to mess with.
They do have something called the PRAM that can be reset on reboot, but this depends on the type of problem or issue you're trying to address in "CMOS".

My iBook G4 continues to run slowly and/or freeze


Try resetting the PRAM by turning on the iBook then holding option + command + P + R and wait till u hear another chime. If it still freezes, it may indicate an application may be causing it to lock up hold shift after you hear the chime to boot OS X into safe boot.

Why wont it work?


doesn't seem that "Simple" if you ask me. I don't think PC hard disks are compatible with Mac's. you might have to get a Mac compatible External HD.

SimpleDrive external USB Disk Drive


You may not see any icon on desktop but should see "found new hardware" at the bottom right by the time. Right click My Computer and click Manage. Under Storage click Disk Management. You should find your drive here. If its a new drive, no letter may be assigned or it may not be partitioned or formatted yet. Right click on the drive to format it and to assign a drive letter. If its already formatted and works on other computers, let me know because it could be a USB error or faulty cable.
