Hello

Well, you can basically buy any external drive and it will work on both operating systems if you format it to a FAT32 format.

If you buy a new drive, you first need to delete the partition on the new drive using Fat32 formatter, and then format it in Fat32 file system.
Here is a link to where you can download the software for free, and get instructions on how to do this.

Hope this can help.

Kind regards
Andrea

I have an external WD My Passport hard drive but Pages says it cannot create a file when I try to save a document on the external hard drive. Is it because the file format is not compatible with Imac? Can...


Apple Pages has a few bugs like this. There is a work around.
  1. Save to Desktop or Documents folder on the System Drive
  2. In Finder, move the file to your external drive.
  3. Now when you open the file from your external any saves will continue to go to your external drive.
It's a bit of a pain but works for now.
All the best

Iomega 1TB HD Works on iMac but not on Windows Laptop?


as the mac has a diffreent format to a pc you cannot connect up the drive to a pc because it simply wont recodnise it. the best way is to network the 2 computers together then alow file sharing on the mac and searcc with windows through the network to find the drive. then copy them across the network to your pc. this will then reformat the files to PC files at they hit your PC

Apple imac HDD install


Pretty sure any size, but they use 3.5" SATA drives, not 2.5 laptop drives. iMacs only use desktop drives so get as big as you want, or can afford with a big cache. The 17 imacs are hard to get into so search the internet on how to get in and replace it and to put the heat shield back in right. Be careful not to break the clips.

Playing PS2 on apple iMac


if the iMac is one of the computers with the slot-load drive (you don't load the disc into a tray before it goes into the computer), then placing a disc smaller than a regular CD/DVD will damage the CD drive and will be very hard to remove.

you could buy an external CD/DVD drive and then use smaller discs with the iMac.
