You may want to try to format it from windows management of the discs in NTFS filesystem.
This is because the FAT32 filesystem recognize only a part of the total capacity of your hard disk

Hello, i have a VERBATIM hard drive USB 2.0 it cost me a lot of money :-( i've hardly used it! it has been handled in cotton wool tonight, when transferring data to it from my computer it has...


1. First power down the computer and the external hard drive.
2. Disconnect the drive.
3. Wait a minute.
4. Start your computer.
5. Connect the Verbatim drive again.
6. Wait a minute. (While waiting, check the screen for popup messages telling you the harddrive is ready and received a drive letter.)
7. Check "My Computer" for the harddrive.
8a. If you see it there, click it and make a copy of the data you have stored on the drive immediately!
8b. If the drive does not show up, you probably have a problem that will take deeper looking-into.

A clicking sound from a harddrive is never a good sign. While it does not mean immanent ***** of the drive, getting the data from it is now a matter of luck. In any case you should not trust the drive and should replace it as soon as possible.

I am trying to write files to a terabyte verbatim portable hard drive, but it saids the drive can not be modified. How do I write to the verbatim hard drive on my mac?


Hello,

Most verbatim drives are formatted to by default to NTFS which is a windows file system. NTFS can be read and copied from on Mac but not written to.

You will need to offload the data to one of your computers and reformat it with the mac.

Apple, Utilities, Disk Utility.

Once formatted for Mac you will be able to read and write to the drive but you will need to add macdisk to the windows PC to allow it to read and write to a Mac formatted disk.

I more information on my FAQ about recovering data from Mac drives on PC

I am a novice on these things I want to use my portable hard drive as a back up for my Imac I connect the cable to unit one end to computer and where do I connect other cable piece? to the modem?


The portable hard drive's cable is connected to the computer's USB port (socket). The computer will see this as an external hard drive. You can open and create a folder on this hard drive and copies the files such as music, data etc from the computer to the portable drive.
