    Hi,

    I bought a Penryn Mac 13" last year, messed up logic board this summer with liquid damage but the HD with leopard 10.5.7 is still good. So I made the HD external by putting in an enclosure with all my music/software (I DJ). I bought a used MAc yesterday with Snow Leopard installed 10.6.1....
    This Mac recognizes my old external drive when plugged as a USB. BUt when I try and put that old HD in this computer, it does not recognize that HD. It displays a folder icon with a question in the centre of it.

    I don't want to DJ using my external drive all the time, I would like to use it internally so not worrying if the plug accidentally comes out.


    Can any one please help me?

    P.S. I am a noob at using the Mac, I know how to take off the HD etc. But using it I am a noob! Only use it for music/DJ ....

    Why don't you just copy the data you need from external to your internal HD?
