Question about Computers & Internet
I have a pc and mac...in order to transfer files from pc to mac, i partitioned the external hard drive so that it could work w/both. a few weeks ago, i transferred all files from pc to the external hard drive...seemingly successfully. now, i've connected it to my mac...both drives appear on my desktop, but i cannot seem to find any of my transferred files. am i doing something wrong??
I have to admit I haven't used a Mac since high-school, but I can tell you that my first thought on this problem was "file system".
Most external HD's are formatted to be used on a Windows PC, and many are even formatted as NTFS. If this is the case, last I heard anyways, Mac OS doesn't support NTFS.
My suggestion is to use either machine to format the external HD (**you will lose all data on it**) as a neutral file system. By that I mean one which will work on both operating systems.
I could be wrong about this, and Mac OS may support NTFS, but if that's the case somone will be kind enough to correct me.
