I want to upgrade to a larger drive so I purchased a new sata 500 gb drive and external case it will not show up either on the desktop or in disk utilities. I have tried two cases two cables and even bought another drive and no luck. I am runnin 10.5.8 system and my time machine external drive shows up fine any idea what Im missing here. I also tried the drive on my sons macbook pro running 10.8.5 no luck Ive tried restarting and even booted with a 10.5 install disk in the cd drive still doesnt show. I have clowned my hard drive with carbon copy cloner on my time machine drive but am reluctant to put the new drive in my machine and try that.
