Try using Disk Utility to mount the drive. This can be found in the Utilities folder within the main applications folder. Launch Disk utility and see if the drive comes up in the list of drives down the left hand side. I presume that the hard drive in the enclosure is spinning. You can normally hear it, and feel a constant light vibration.

Can i replace 80 gb hd with 500 gb harddrive?


Of course. Get a transfer cable to move the 80 g data to the 500g then remove the 80 gig and plug the cable from the 80 g into the 500g.

What's the largest internal hard drive available for a 15" mac book pro (intel)? Where can I buy it?


Check Other World Computing. It's a great company. You can use the 'OWC Upgrade Center' to figure out what drive to get. You plug in your 'books details and it shows you only the drives that will work in your model. It can depend on if its a Unibody etc.

You can install a 1 terabyte in some models. Again, depending on how old and which mode you have.

They also have videos showing how to install drives, iPod batteries and all sorts of usefull stuff...
I've bought a few drives from them. I ordered the wrong one the first time and they took it back and sent me the correct one, no problem.

OWC's address is www.macsales.com

You can also go to powerbookmedic.com for an HD and help on how to install it. They also sell kits to install a HD in the optical drive space.

Hope that helps

What courses the hard drive to file on a mac book pro laptop.


Hi Stephanie
This is one of those questions that's virtually impossible to answer, it could be anything.
Your best option is to take to a mac specialist (the dealer where you bought it) or to an Apple Store if you have one near by.
It may not need a new hard drive, it may just be corrupted and need sorting out. On the other hand it could have failed mechanically and will need to be replaced - check your warranty. There have been a number of reports of HDs failing in some models and Apple have replaced them free of charge as there was a manufacturing fault at the HD factory that didn't come to light until the drives had been running for about a year.
You have been using Time Machine to back up your work haven't you?

Hardrive not showing real capacity


Sounds as if your hard drive is partitioned into 2 or more parts or was not formatted to large disk.

Get the hard drive replaced. It was probably damaged during shipping.
