I use my external HD to store all my pictures/music/movies etc. I used it with my old Mac Mini and everything worked fine. I recently sold my old mini and purchased the new one. When I connected my HD to the new mini all the photos are gone?? All my music/movies are still there and work fine, but all the folders which I have my pictures in are either empty or have a thumbs.db icon. When I check the properties of each picture folder it still shows that pictures are in there because of the size. I have no idea what is going on. Btw I use a Maxtor 1tb hd. Any help with this would be really appreciated.
