Question about Glyph GT 050Q Hard Drive

PC won't see my glyph drive after I have installed Mac Drive 8

I have a GT 06TE 3TB Glyph Drive. I have installed Mac Drive 8 on my PC, The glyph drive will not show up even though it is identical to another Glyph I have and that one does.  I have reformatted as Mac OS Journaled and tried again still nothing! I have tried the firewire connection and all usb ports and still nothing. 
I do not want to format the drive as a PC drive because I need it as a go between between Mac and PC.

Any Suggestions Would Be Extremely Appreciated

    Hi thanks for taking the time to look at this. It does work with all mac Operating systems but it does not work with my PC even after I installed Mac Drive 8. However I have an identical Glyph drive that does work with my PC and mac drive 8 so either something is mechanically wrong with it or im doing something wrong i just have know idea.

Take it back to where you bought it, and exercise the warranty, to get it replaced or repaired.

    I'm confused -- does it work, or is it _not_ working?

Help! Glyph PortaGig 50 won't show up!!


Control Panel, Computer Management, Disk Management. Check that your Glyph is present. If it is present, does it have a drive letter assigned? If not Right Click and Assign Drive Letter.

If drive not present you should check power and data connections.

My glyph harddrive dont show up on my mac why?


If the hard drive was formatted on a PC computer in NTFS file format then the MAC will not recognise this hard drive.
If you want to transfer data between the PC and MAC then you need to format the hard drive with a PC in FAT32 file format. The MAC can read and write to a FAT32 formatted hard drive

My glyph is not loading and i did nothing wrong or weird to it, i want to smash it now!


Did you format the Glyph tabletop harddrive? If you didn't format it, it won't work.

Your Operating System is not stated, so let me give you an example using Windows XP. (Home or Pro doesn't matter)

Power cord plugged into the Glyph harddrive, and plugged into a surge protector, 6-pin Firewire cable, or 9-pin Firewire cable from Glyph to computer plugged in, Glyph power turned on, computer on, Windows loaded,

1.Left-click on Start, then Right-click on My Computer. Left-click on Manage, in the small fly-out menu.

2.In the Computer Management window, under Storage, click on Disk Management. The Write Signature wizard will pop up.

3.Use the wizard to write a signature to the new drive. The drive must be named. Name it what you want. (Drive 2; My Drive; Storage 2: Your name;
whatever you wish)
This drive must be named, or Windows won't be able to find it.

4.Now I suggest just making one partition, and it will be the Primary partition. Do this by selecting the Maximum Size. (Partitioning: Think of your harddrive as a large room. A Partition is a wall, dividing the room into two rooms. This time you won't be dividing the room. You will use the whole room. 250 GigaBytes of it) Choose -> NTFS.
Follow the instructions, let it format the harddrive.

You should be good to go now.

My computer does not show glyph drive aftwer its connected


I had not created even a primary partition for my Glyph drive which I needed to do. So I created a new partition and seleected the maximum size for it which was all 500GB of the drive, since I dont want any real divisions of the drive; then I selected quick format. This is actually on the Glyphtech.com questions on how to format the drive, it will telll you about this step of creating a primary partition (or even more partitions if you want them).

Glyph drive wont boot


you could try a program like disk warrior or disk rescue, or you could try giving Glyph a call, they have pretty good warranty coverage.

My glyph is not seen on my mac


If the drive is connected via firewire, power the drive. If the drive powers and you can place your hand on it and feel it "spinning", and still it does not mount. Try a different FW cable. If still no mounting action, place your ear on the drive to hear any grinding or clicking. If the drive sounds to be operating normal, open disk utility.. Hard drive/Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility The drive should appear in the left pane under your computers hard drive. You should see the button to MOUNT it on the top right. Hope this works
