Hi balkanhope
Save information on a separate hd and wait for folowing operations to be successfull : format your Pininfarina in FAT 32 . Copy data back to Pininfarina . Connect Pininfarina to Mac and proceed further on .

Can I download Simpletech pininfarina 320gb drivers on Macbook Air


On a Mac you generally have all the drivers you need built in. Would be very rare these days to download a special driver. Any drive plugged in to the USB port usually shows up.
Perhaps the drive needs formatting first. Often external drives are pre formatted for PC.
First...Open Drive Utility in Applications / Utilities Folder
Then Plug External Drive in.
It should show up in Left Column of DU Window
Use Drive Utility to format & test the drive.
Use the Mac OS Extended (Journled) if using with Mac files or FAT 32 if swapping data from PC to Mac & back.
Good Luck

I have uploaded everything on my Mac laptop hard drive to my SimpleTech external hard drive. I removed most of my music (in iTunes) and some other files to make room on my Mac. Now I'm having trouble...


You may need to tell iTunes where your iTunes media folder location is. You can do this in iTunes, go iTunes>Preferences>Advanced Tab>Change button, then navigate to where your iTunes media is and choose this as its location.

SimpleTech not reconize by my computer.


hi there,

i will pass on what was given to me for information. if you are still getting power to the drive you can remove the external casing, remove your pc side panel, where you would insert memory and plug the hard drive into the tape inside your pc to see if the pc will recognize the hard drive. if you are not getting any power or platters spinning then it is more serious. i wish you all the best. cherie

PLEASE HELP


It is just like any other disc drive. You can set up folders to store your music. You can store music, files, videos, whatever you'd like.
It should be assigned a drive letter like d: e: or f: You can simply copy your music files to it.

Be more specific as to to how you are trying to use the Simpletech drive to store music.
