    I made a copy of my computer using superduper! and saved it to my external HD. Then I got my 120GB Western Digital HD for my Macbook and installed it. I booted from the external HD and want to use superduper! to put everything on my new HD, but when I go to select a source to copy it to, the new HD doesn't show up. What gives? I have a pic to show you what I mean.

    Did you format the new drive yet? If not, use Disk Utility.

    lol sorry. I went into disk utility, then to the Erase tab. For Volume Format I chose Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) and named it, then clicked erase. It only takes a second to do it and once it's done you can use superduper! to select the drives needed...and that's it! My new HD is working fantastically.
