Question about Electronics - Others
I received a gift of a WD1200U017 004 WD Passport May 11th. It works great when plugged into the USB port of my desktop Macintosh G5 computer but is not recognized by my laptop (Mac PowerPC, G4, running Mac OS10.04.11). . .in the past, I have used thumb drives on a regular basis, with no problem.
SOURCE: I can't use my external HD
Do you have any kind of security software/firewall installed? It will often block hard drives because it sees them as a security threat. Disable the firewall or security should do the trick.
