Hi there,
I have had this product for some time now and only now have bothered to use it. I have followed the instructions given to me in the box, the untitled icon appears on my screen but i cant seem to put anything on it. I have opened the disk utility but not sure to go from there.
Help

    I have the same problem. I think there is a driver we need to install, but not sure where to get it. the 'manual' that came with it says to use the 'Apple disk utility'. Any idea what that is?

I had the same problem but i found the solution!
It's right that you opened up disk utility. I found the solution here: http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=SATA_Troubleshooter_-_Mac_OS_X_Installation_Basics&vgnextoid=a0a44a3cdde5c010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD#storage

but short version of it all:
Basically you just need to format the drive by selecting it on the left in disk utility. Then select the erase tab. Then change MS-DOS (FAT) to Mac OS Extended. Finish by clicking erase. Mine works fine now. Hope you can get yours working too!

Maxtor Basics portable 320gb Mac to pc compatability problems


Hi Tys,

I had a similar issue with my Maxtor Basics portable 500GB drive. I hadn't formatted mine yet, but had heard there were issues, so decided to find out before I start. I even saw your post here looking for an answer. Finally, one of my friends told me the following solution, which worked fine for me:

Don't format the drive as any of the Mac OS Extended options, simply reformat it as MS-DOS (it should be one of the options in Disk Utilities when you choose Erase and go to the Volume Format dropdown list).

Your Mac should be able to recognise and use the drive in this format and it works for PCs. Transferring files between the two shouldn't be a problem.

A thing to note, though, is that these Maxtor drives apparently come ready-formatted as MS-DOS (mine did). But while my Mac recognised the drive, I couldn't copy files on to it. If this happens, erase this MS-DOS formatting with... MS-DOS. Don't ask me why this works, I'm not a Mac Genius, but now my Maxtor is trouble-free and can transfer files from PC to Mac and back again.

Hope this works out for ya!

K

Mine didn't work at first even though I plugged it in but after I did that it worked. Hope you can get yours working too!
