    Umm... without knowing what Mac, what OS, what external hard drive and how it's connected or what specifically the trouble is? No, nobody can help you.

    You need to provide all the details you can if you expect to get help.

    USUALLY there are no drivers required for a modern Mac to access an external USB or Firewire hard drive.
