    what is the hd format?

    Hi!
    Right now I see is Windows NT File System

  • annamassot Mar 12, 2011

    I just formated the disk yesterday with my friend's Windows Vista and it still doesn't work with my Macbook. Any hints?
    Is it actually locked to Mac and only works woth Windows?

  • annamassot Mar 12, 2011

    Thanks Tony!
    Just one last thing, if I transfer it to FAT am I only getting 4GB or 400gb?

  • annamassot Mar 12, 2011

    Also, does it mean that I can only used always either Mac or Windows unless I download the unsafe drivers?
    Oh, the hard drive it's called Lacie Rikiki.
    THANKS A LOT MASTER!

Yup because you formatted in NTFS yesterday on your friend's windows. only window pc's can write to the hard drive.
so you will need to reformat it under mac to mac extended.
or if you want to FAT if you want to write from both platforms.
please note that FAT file size is limited to 4GB's..
you could download NTFS write drivers for mac but it is unsafe and data can be corrupted.

As an alternative, you can try making a new Time Machine backup from the files of the old HDD. Install Mavericks from scratch on the SSD and then transfer the documents needed back from the Time Machine.

I would recommend installing fresh OS X when upgrading from HDD to SSD anyway.

Here is how to make a bootable USB stick for installing Mavericks:

There are several ways to do this. You can follow the instructions in the following article to back up your iTunes library on CD/DVD:

Alternatively, you can use your iPod classic to transfer your music as per the instructions in the following article:

http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1329

You can also transfer the contents of your iTunes library via a flash drive or external drive, simply copy My Documents / iTunes to your external hard drive / flash drive, transfer it to your Mac, and then drag and drop the entire iTunes folder onto the iTunes icon in the dock and it will automatically import all of your songs, settings, and playlists.

I want to retrieve data from a Powerbook 3400c via ethernet. I have a Macbook Pro running Snow Leopard and an iMac running OS10.4


I think the 3400c has a Firewire port, which would allow it to startup in "target disk mode" where it would be just like an external hard drive. That is, hold T at startup to get TDM. I have a Pismo with Firewire but I think the color 3400 is older.
With MacBooks and OS10.5 or later (you are at 10.6) you can do this with USB, also. So it might use the MacBook as the external drive of the PowerBook to transfer files in Finder.
Otherwise, you can turn on AppleShare on both and use Ethernet to transfer files slower.

at this point it sounds as though the drive itself is corrupted It is very difficult to try to get the data off once this happens and so there are data recovery places which charge into the thousands to do this.

Seagate Free Agent Drive cannot be modified? Worked before...


Ok,

Sounds like it's one of three things then

Disk trouble from unplugging the usb while the unit is still "running" and not yet finalized. Running CHKDSK /? /F in the run box where ? = extrenal drives lettrer. Then restart the computer(done from windows PC with drive attached)

Shell trouble I have already advised a dozen or so people this week that if CHKDSK doesn't work, replace the shell with a new one and see if the hard drive works in the new shell.

Failed harddrive, of course this is always an option. If neither of the above suggestions works then it's possible the hdd has failed and you may need to send it to a pro if you have any files on it that need retreiving.

Hope this helps FixYa, if you need additional help just reply to this by adding a comment.

Flash drive failure


You need to format your drives. Even though you delete files on them a small amount of data remains each time. After so long the data builds up and clogs the drive.

Insert a USB with a problem
Go applications, Disk utility
open disk utility, then you should see the USB disk in the utility screen. click on then click format. It will kill all data on the USB and make it usable again.
