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

External hard drive used on mac,how do i use it on pc?


You need to format this hard drive using your PC.
If the hard drive was formatted using the MAC then the PC won't see anything on the hard drive because the MAC uses a different file system that is not compatible with the PC.
BUT if you want to exchange files between the MAC and the PC then format the hard drive using the PC in FAT32 file system. The MAC can read and write to a FAT32 formatted hard drive.

How to Connect Maxtor OneTouch 4 Mini 320Gb to PC


I have one as well running along with a PC. PCs and Macs are formatted differently. Go to www.maxtor.com and create a search for reformatting from a Mac to a PC with your Operating System in the search as well. Should have no problems after doing that. It will tell you and or show you where and how to reformat.

Im trying to copy from mac to pc using seagate removable hard drive and its not working? When i plug the Seagate into my PC nothing happens


The hard drive volume format is only for MAC. Check the volume format if it is MAC OS Extended or MAC OS Extended (Journaled). If it is, then change it to MS DOS to make it readable and writable to a PC and MAC OS

Need to Reformat my Western Digital 500 Gig Hardrive


Simple, you have to format it by selecting Dos Drive which supports NTFS format.  or else try other option which is to format it in PC computer be sure you will select the NTFS format not FAT32. Im sure you can use it now to both Mac and PC.

Problem with my external hard drive.


The HDD is corrupt.Try to re-format if you get your PC to open.
All data will be lost.
To be honest with you,I would not now trust the HDD for any critical or confidential data.
