    Hi everyone,

    This is my first post so I'm sorry if it's in the wrong place.
    I have recently bought a MacBook 12" & am trying to access some files from my external HD on my laptop via the USB-C to USB cable.

    The drive is not showing up on my desktop/finder however it is being picked up and read by Disk Utility. The drive works fine on my iMac & old MacBook Pro (2009).

    I have attached an image in case it is of any use. Any help would be much appreciated!
