It could be incorrectly formatted, if so you can reformat by using another computer that recognizes it or you may be able to find it on your laptop through a formatting tool. The formatting tool built into OSX is called "disk utility".

PowerBook G4 does not seem to recognize. (Worked well on previous Apple lap top)


If your Firelite SmartDisk was formatted for a PC, and you are using the Mac side of the G4 it won't. They use a different format scheme. Need to load Parallel, bootcamp, or another virtual PC program, and then Windows. Using that it will recognize it.

If you know another Mac user that is using both sides (Mac and Virtual PC) is a quick way to retrieve data to move it. Be careful reformatting the FireLite. There are some more complex ways. Hope that this helps.

PS: I use a 160GB FireLite on my G4, MacBook Pro as well as my Tower and notebook PCs.

Firelite hard drive won't mount on a Macbook


Sounds suspicious, have a look at other world computing, they have all sorts of work rounds for apple limitations. Have you looked in the disk utility to see if it is there? if so run repair and permissions.

Hard Drive isn't recognized when it is connected to the computer
