SOURCE: Hard Drive not mounting

Check the jumper on each hard-drive.

My guess is that the WD drive has the jumper in the "correct" position, for mounting inside an external case, while the other drives have their jumper set to an "incorrect" position.

Set the jumper to MA(ster), not to SL(ave), nor to C(able)S(elect).

If you plugged this into a PC and formatted it you probably formatted it with NTFS or another Microsoft file format. This will not be recognized by a Mac. You will need to pop the hard drive back into your Mac and boot to the installation CD. From here you will need to go into disk utility and reformat the drive with a GUID Mac Extended format partition. If you open disk utility and the drive doesn't show up you probably have an issue with the drive controller on the logic board.

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

Thank you for choosing FixYa!

Will not open ,screen goes dark ,asked to restart


Make sure that the power supply is good. If you have a good power supply, test with bootable Mac OS X install Disc. Start the computer holding down the option button. two icons should show up the disc icon and the hard drive icon. select the install disc. If everything boots OK then there is a problem with the hard drive. If you can't boot at all there is other hardware problem(s).
You will then have to take it to a Apple Genius. Make sure you make an appointment first. http://www.apple.com/retail/geniusbar/

This wild mean the file system of the hard drive is set as something other than NTFS or FAT/FAT32. Mac and Linux would be able to read it just fine but due to the limitations of Windows, it wouldn't recognize the file system.
Google the program ext2read. It will enable reading of another file system in Windows.

My mac is showing me a grey screen with a flashing folder icon in the middle alternating the finder icon and a question mark.I dont have the osx disc


Hi there,
The flashing folder icon is telling you that your Mac cannot locate a working operating system to startup.

You may be having a software problem that is keeping your Mac from recognizing your operating system, or a hardware problem that is keeping your Mac from connecting to your hard drive (where the operating system lives).
Since you don't have access to a CD/DVD of the Mac operating system, ff you have an external hard drive with a working operating system on it, try connecting it to your Mac with FireWire and startup the computer holding down these keys: Command (Apple) +option+shift+delete. This will force the Mac to attempt to startup from the external drive.
If none of these things work, we would be glad to help at TechRestore. You can use coupon code "TWEET" for $10 off any drive replacement service. We offer free shipping options and local pickup in your neighborhood. http://techrestore.com

Externals not recognized by computer.


Go to your control panel open up 'administrative tools' Open Computer management, then choose disc management instead of device manager. Make sure that you have the drives pluged in and connected before you do that. All connected drives formatted or not that are in working order should show up under disc management. If they are not showing up they are not compatable. Make sure that they are marked as active and format them if they need to be formatted. Do so by right clicking on the drive in the disc management window.

Western Digital hard drive problem


Ok.  I have a WD 500 and I have ran into similar problems.  First, shut your computer down.  Unplug the hard drives USB cable and the power cable.  Wait for about 2 minutes.  Plug the USB cable into the computer, plug the power cord in...wait for 30-45 seconds and then start your computer.  That hopefully should solve your issues.

Hi-

Chances are these large memory hard drive should be plugin with a USB and adapter of its own since 320Gb is too big and needs power to be able to recognize. But if you find it defective you have a year warranty from the manufacturer, you can call them up for a replacement.

Hope this help. Thanks for using Fixya!
