Hey my Buffolo harddrive wont show my files, i can see that there are files, i have used 180 out of 200GB, but when i click on my harddrive icone on my computer it sayd folder is empty.. PLEASE HELP


There are generally 2 formats for Hard drives, the NTFS for windows and the FAT 32 for MAC. If you previously used windows then mac wont see it and vice versa. You can check this by right clicking and see the properties. If you want Mac to back up as well as using it on windows, you need to partition the Hard disk by going into the Mac Applications folder then select Utilities. If the Hard drive is connected you should see it and can select erase from the menu tab to format the disks according to your needs. This solved my problems and I hope this helps.

Sony Vegas Movie studio 8.0 - I put in pictures, video and music, but only the music plays. No video or photos appear when I play the video


Because Sony Vegas support WMV, MPG (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4), MP4, MOV, ASF, SWF, FLV, etc. It doesn't support .avi format. So I want to know your video files format.

If ur video file format is .avi format or other video format that Sony Vegas doesn't support. We need convert AVI files into WMV, MPG, MP4, MOV supported by Sony Vegas. AVI to Sony Vegas is a good solution to import AVI to Sony Vegas for editing.

Mac 10.4.11 Acom data hd/ the hard drive does not show on desktop or file menu. does show in the disk utility.


Is this working before with this Mac Tiger? Or is this the first time you're connecting this HD to your computer?

If first time, there's a possibility that the HD has different file format. It should be formatted as Mac OSX (Journaled) in order for the Mac to recognize it.

If this is working before with this computer, check the status of the HD. Most HDs that could only be detected under the Disk Utility needs a reformat.

IMPORTANT: Formatting the HD would erase all the files inside of it. You may need to bring your HD to the nearest Data Recovery Center to retrieve the files inside and then you may now reformat the HD.

Have a great day!

Re-format


If you started a format, but it didn't complete, you pretty much cleaned out the hard drive.  go to start>right click my computer and click manage.  On the left hand side under storage, you will see disk management.  Click on that.  Now before we continue, I will tell you that if there is anything important on your hard drive....DO NOT CONTINUE!!!  As what I am about to tell you will completely erasse everything with NO chance of recovery...at least not without spending hundreds of dollars.  Find your external hard drive on that list on the bottom.  Right click...delete partition.  Then right click and create partition.  Then right click and select format.  That should be it in a nutshell.  Hope it helps.  Please rate!
