Copy all the data onto your Mac computer.

Take the external drive to a PC computer, and "reformat" it, using "quick format".

Take the external drive back your Mac computer,
and write all the "saved" files onto the drive.

Can i replace 80 gb hd with 500 gb harddrive?


Of course. Get a transfer cable to move the 80 g data to the 500g then remove the 80 gig and plug the cable from the 80 g into the 500g.

Hello,
With the drive plugged in, going into your Applications ' Utilities ' Disk Utility Select the drive and press Verify Disk, Repair Disk and Repair Permissions. If you don't have anything on the drive right now, try formatting it with the Mac OS Extended (Journaled) file system from the Disk Utility.
If that doesn't work the drive may be damaged. If you have another PC / Mac, trying plugging it in and see if it works there. If the drive is under 1 year old it should still be under warrantee, in which you could return it / RMA and get a new one sent back from the manufacture.
Regards, Chris

Mac not recognizing External Western Digital HD.


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.

Nexxtech usb external floppy drive


The simple answer to your question is yes. The trick is getting the external floppy drive.

If you have one you should be able to connect it to you mac and simply drag the files on to your desktop. Depending what the files are you should then be able to still read them and save them on the mac in a new format.

It really depends on what format the files are and what app they where created in.

Floppy disks! I have not come across them for years! The process is quite slow!
