Question about Toshiba MK1637GSX 160 GB IDE Hard Drive
I was sold a Sea Gate Free Agent 320 GB hard drive and told it would work on my MacBook OS 10.4.11. But when I plug it in I am told it is "read only."
Hi! go to Application Folder>Utilities Folder, Then click the Disk Utility. Select your external hard drive. And look for the erase. Then your external HD will be formated in Mac OSX. That's all. Enjoy!! :)

Lesson No. 1 - Never buy hardware or software from a store at which sales staff think the best way to answer your Mac questions is to convince you to buy a PC. Lesson No. 2 - Reformat the drive using the Mac Disk Utility included with your MacBook after consulting with a store at which the sales staff know there is more to the computer world than PCs. If you only intend to use the drive on your Mac, choose the option Mac Extended Journaled when rewriting the drive. There is also an formatting option to use the drive on both PC's and Macs. But I'm not going there.
