Re: from apple to windows
You did not mention which Windows or Mac version you are running, but "in the good old days", all I did was to format the drive either as FAT32 (in Windows) or as MS-DOS (in Mac). Keep
volume/folder file names following Windows naming rules. Don't erase
any of the invisible files that will be visible on the opposite system
when running. MP3's will write/read fine for both OS.

While copying files to your external harddisk, you must get a pop-up-screen with animation to see the progress. There's however a chance you didn't copy the files to your exernal harddisk but to your local disk into your computer. Try to find the map "My Music" if you're using Windows. Maybe they're located overthere, instead of the external harddisk.
you can partition your hard disk while installing windows xp
and if you want to parition your hard disk after installing your windows,you will need third party softwares called parition magic which are free to try,but you will have to buy those softwares to use it,so its better to paritiyion your hard disk while installing windows
the problem is from the harddisk and it have to be reformatted, what you have to do is that when you plug it in, goto my computer and right click on the harddisk you plug in to display the shortcut menu then in the shortcut menu goto format then click it to bring out the format menu then click ok or start when you click it, it will start formatting, after formatting follow the next option.
May be there is virus either in the harddisk or in the MP3 player due to this the firmware might have got corrupted ....
There is a more chances to the presence of virus in your harddisk & then it might have got transferred to the MP3 player too ... so i recommend you to just install & scan your harddisk with the good antivirus & first of all remove all viruses present in the harddisk .. & then insert your MP3 player ...scan your MP3 player(as it appears as the drive when you connect to pc) with the antivirus & remove it & then format it...
After this if you try transferring music you will be successful in transferring it ...
(As i think the virus may be some trojan ... so when ever you connect any memory device it will also get attacked with the trojan this is about the trojan ... so by this you might not be able to transfer music ...)
thank you any further queries reply me i am always here to assist you thank you ...
"The 2nd row, is for DS(Master): only 1 drive in PC, or the drive that you want to boot up from.
The 3rd row, is CS Enabled: Cable select, the computer desides wich harddisk is master and wich one is slave
The 4th is cap limit: windows cannot run on harddisks that are to big,
like 300gb, so putting jumper on cap limit (capacity limit) makes it
smaller for windows to use it.
The 5th row has no use, or i don't know what it does, either of that 2."
I would like to add about the DS (Slave) setting. It is used if there is another drive present on the system which you want to boot from. It will become a spare Hard Disk.
Here is a picture of a maxtor drive indicating where to find model number and jumper settings.
