My WD My Passport external Hard Drive ! TB formatted for Mac is not reading my files


A Windows PC computer will not read files on the WD hard drive that has been formatted on a MAC.
The fix.
Copy your photos onto the MAC computer then remove the WD hard drive and connect it to your Windows PC and format the WD hard drive in FAT32 file system.
After formatting has been completed remove the WD hard disk and connect it to the MAC computer. The MAC can read and write to a Windows FAT32 formated hard disk. You can now copy the photos from the MAC to the WD hard disk. When copying is complete, remove the WD hard drive and connect the WD hard drive to your Windows PC and you can now copy the photo from the WD hard disk to your Windows PC.

I'm not able to write files to my WD passport drive. It works fine in XP, but I have a Mac only..really not sure wat to do here..sos!


If the WD has been formatted in NTFS then the MAC cannot read or copy to this hard disk.
To make it compatible for the PC and MAC, format the WD Passport drive on your XP computer in FAT32 format. Then you can copy and exchange files between the PC and MAC.

I have a wd used on a mac and would like to use it on a eepc as well, but it is not working...I can't open it on the eepc


The disk-drive might be formatted for usage _only_ with Mac OS X.
Copy all the files from it to your Mac's disk-drive.
Move the Passport to any PC, and "format" the disk for use by Windows.
Move the Passport to your Mac, and copy all the "saved" files back onto the Passport.
Move the Passport to your EEPC, and you should be able to use it, and to see the filenames that you copied from your Mac.

Simple, your BIOS is setup to boot on external devices first. Try prioritizing your system to boot up to your system hard drive if you don't want to see that error anymore.

Cannot copy large files onto my WD passport


Your drive is probably in FAT32 format.  FAT32 has a 4GB file limit that is why your 5GB movie isn't saving.  You will have to format the drive in Mac OS file format (HFS) using Disk Utility.
Unfortunately once its in Mac format the drive will not be recognized by windows PCs.  What I do is have a program called macdrive installed on my windows computers so that they can access mac format hard drives.
i hope this helps!
