Question about Computers & Internet
I need help with installing an external hard drivce on to my new mac book pro - the external hard drive is a maxstore onetouch4 750 - it installs okay on a windows xp computer but my macbook pro doesnt recognise it.
If you have a hard-drive that is formatted as NTFS which stands for (New Technology File Ssytem), Mac OS X can only read the partition. It cannot write to it.
The trick is to use your drive manfacturer's disk-formatting software which will allow you to format your drive as one large partition. Formatting your drive as one large FAT 32 partition is the easiest way to make a drive so it can be used with both PC's and Mac's.
Another option is to use a third part utility so that you can read a MAC formated harddrive's from your PC. Here is one option: http://www.macdrive.com/.
