    I'm trying to get my iMac to see an external IDE hard drive via an Island USB IDE/SATA adapter.

    Here's the address.

    I've downloaded the docs and what little stuff they have with Macintosh hasn't worked. :(

    are you trying to open windows or mac files? hfs+ or fat32?

    If you are trying to open window files then boot up your iMac in windows.

    XP and Vista will recognize your external HD.

    You need more information on your post so we can help you.
