    Hello to all.

    Just got a new iMac 20" and having been trying to transfer data from my windows laptop. Now while the Maxtor external HDD is recognized, the Transcend one doesnt seem to be recognized!

    And the other problem is that i dont know the equivalnt of an F5 (refresh) on the mac...

    Any help would be really appreciated!

    Does the drive show up in the Disk Utility? You'll find the disk utility application in Applications>Utilities The attached drives that are detected are in the left pane
