Question about Hard Drives
Hi, I was hoping you guys could help solve my problem. Okay, I have both a PC and a MAC. I originally got the external hard drive so that I can store all my photos and videos from my PC on to it, because the PC was getting too full. Everything was working fine.Then, I decided to use my external hard drive to store and transfer data from my MAC to PC and PC to MAC. When I first connected the external hdd to my MAC I had access to the copies of files that I had saved from my PC on to the external hdd, but I was not able to copy my files from my MAC to the external hdd. So, I decided to install the Maxtor manager thingy from the external hdd to my MAC, hoping that I will be able to save my files from my MAC to the external hdd. I found out that it worked, but I noticed that my previously saved photos and videos from my PC were deleted from the external hdd.
Now, when I plug my external hdd into my PC the install screen won't boot up anymore. The drive won't even pop up on the My Computer screen. It doesn't seem to be working for my PC anymore, but now it works for my MAC.
I need to know if I can get my external hard drive to work for my PC again. If so please let me know how I can fix it. If not, then please let me know that the external drive will only be good for my MAC. Thank you.
There seems to be a firmware update for the WD EBook HD. This can be found at support.wdc.com

The problem is that mac has a diffrent 0perating system to a pc the thing you doing by switching from mac to pc the external hard drive is conflicting with one another to make your external driver to work on your pc follow these steps. go into control panal,system,hardware,device manager,universal serial bus controllers,drivers then update drivers that should reconise your mass storage driver.

during the boot up process for a short time you will see a certain key to enter set up
press that key to enter BIOS scroll to PnP/PCI configurations the default is disabled
select enabled to reset configuration if you have installed a new add on and it has caused a serious conflict that the operating system can not boot
once you have your computer running again you might be able to attack this trojan
hope this helps
