That's not generic; what OS are you using, and what does the software need to do? Just provide drivers for your device; which should be the problem type rather than Generic; or do backup, crypto, use HFS+ for mac compatibility, and organize your stuff to save you time?

How to download a cd from a portable device into mac

Do you mean "how to burn files from a portable device to the mac" instead? You will need burning software like Nero or other software that is compatible with your mac. The process includes copying the files from the portable device to your mac hard drive then use burning software to burn the files to a dvd or cd disk. I don't know about mac but with a pc, you simple drag and drop the files from the portable device to your hard drive using Windows Explorer.

Where can I find the complete Users Manual for the Portable Hard Drive?

Your question is very important and these days people want to know more about portable hard drives.

There are many companies who manufacture portable hard drives/disks. Most popular are western digital, Seagate, Acer, transcend. They all have different product manuals and you can download them from their respective websites.

Though the manual are different but their function is almost same. All the portable hard drives connect and powered through USB. There is a flash rom which has required software and device drivers. All of them installs itself upon first connection to a laptop/desktop.

An user can use it almost similar to a pen drive or any removable media. One drawback is there - there hard drives may not be used to boot Windows operating system. Otherwise they are reliable, economical and serves a lot of purposes.

I made a mistake and reformatted my SimpleTech Signature mini portable hard drive without first downloading the software to my desktop first before formatting..??and now I do not have the software that...

I don't quite understand what you're trying to accomplish. Do you want to try and restore the data that was formatted on the Simpletech drive? If so, follow the link and get a software program called recuva It's freeware. If you can't get it with that then there's another software program that I use quite often called Easy Recovery Professional. It's not free, but it's saved me quite a bit of time recovering lost files that I forgot to back-up.

Verbatim Portable hard drive ? download entire desktop with applications ?

Don't know why you might want to do this, but assuming the portable drive is equal to or bigger than your system drive (C:), I would recommend you check out Ghost software (not sure of name) but this will put you on it. With Ghost, you make a mirror image of an entire hard drive. I used it to make multiple copies of entire PC's for classroom use.. i.e. Load one PC with all the OS and program software, and then connect other drives to the "Master" one at a time, until I had a classroom full of identical systems. Had to pull the drives, but since yours is already external, connectivity would be the only issue. USB should work, I would think.
