So my external isn't working with my Powerbook G4 or my iMac. It doesn't come up at ALL on my desktop like normal. I took it to someone who plugged it into a PC and my stuff came up fine. What is wrong. Please, my life is on this external. HELP ME!
That's not the problem, even if it was formatted as NTFS, Mac OS X should still be able to read it.Correct me if I'm wrong but I would say that it's not formatted correctly for use with OS X.
If your PC has a DVD burner, then you could transfer some of the music at a time and then burn a DVD of it, repeat until done. That would take a while, but if your Mac can't read it, then I don't see what other choice you have. And backup your data if you don't want to lose itahhh this is a disaster - and i know all my files will NOT fit on the PC that is in my house. i have over 100G of music.
