Can i transfer information to a mac


If the external hard drive has been formatted on a PC in NTFS file format then the MAC cannot read data off this hard drive.
The FIX..
Connect the USB external hard drive to a Windows computer and copy your data off this hard drive to the computer.
Then format the external hard drive in FAT32 file format. (the MAC can read and write to data to and from a Windows PC)
Now copy the your data from the computer back onto the external hard drive.
Now you can connect the external hard drive to the MAC and download your data to the MAC.

How do you transfer data from this external hard drive to a new internal hard drive that was just installed


Hello,

Turn your computer on. Plug the external drive. It should show in My computer window. Explore the external drive (by clicking on its icon in My computer). Point and select all you want to copy (CTRL A selects All) CTRL C. ( all that is selected will be marked for copying). Go to folder where you want to copy the files. Open the folder and CTRL V.

Hope it helps

Cannot transfer files that are greater than 4GB


The lack of free space iis on your internal HD not the external. Whenever transferring files from one drive to another, you are acturally making a copy of the file to be transferred and sending the copy to the new drive. If your internal HD is nearly full, you can try to Cut and Paste the files to the external, or clear up more space on your internal b/4 tryiing to move the bigger files. Best of luck.

Not enough free disk space error


I saw that my drive was FAT32 and my machine is NTFS, wasn't sure that could be the issue until you replied advising the 4gb restriction. Does not make sense i transferd 4gb before, but none the less I reformatted the drive to NTFS and my file transfered just fine.
Thank you for your input.

Transferring Files to External Hard drive


I would suggest you find a backup program to do all this for you. I use EZBackItUp (http://www.rdcomp.net/ezbackitup/) a nice freeware program that is easy to set up. Once the files are backed up, though, you should not delete them from your C: drive, as the program will them delete them from the backup too. What you should try to do is move big files (movies, music, etc) to the external drive, which will give you more space on your C: drive. And, as always, make sure you run a good cleaning program (http://www.ccleaner.com for a great one, download and install) to reclaim some disk space.

Good Luck, and I applaud you for having a backup!
