Question about SmartDisk FireLite XPress USBFLXP60 60 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

Name and date coming up wrong on Smartdisk

I'm using Mac OS 10.4.11 on an iMac G5. The display on my new Smartdisk Firelite XPress starts with "SPYQ" rather than "Firelite XP" and the date is "July 15, 2107" rather than the date of last use. It is working OK otherwise. How can I get it to show the correct name and date? It doesn't seem possible to change either in Firelite XPress Notepad.

The icon on the desktop is still coming up as Firelite XP, so I don't know where the SPYQ has come from. I'm now worried it might be something to do with spyware.

Any help appreciated!

Spyware is very unusual with Mac. Especially with the latest version; 10.12.4

way but to reformat your smartdisk.

Go to the applications folder and then utilities open Disk Utility in the left box select you firelite and then clcik on the erase tab to your right. You can then select how you are going to format the hard drive standard for using with Mac only machines is Mac OS Extended (Journaled) or if you want to use with both PC and Macs is MS-DOS (FAT). Then name your drive and click on erase. Hope this helps.

The question mark refers to the hard drive. The system can't find it. You'll need to get a new harddrive and reinstall the system
