Describe your external hard drive iomega MDHD500 Problem: I've just bought a MAC OSX computer which doesn't recognise my iomega hard drive (used on a PC) is there a way to fix this?


Are there any files on the disk-drive that you want to keep?
If so, connect it to a PC, and copy those files.

If not, connect it to the Mac, and allow the Mac to 'format' the drive, to initialize it for use on the Mac.

If the hard drive has failed, which it sounds to be the case and it does happen even to new hard drives, and is still under warranty with Seagate, go to the following page to start a warranty claim for the drive.

You can also check to make sure your hard drive is still under warranty there as well.
