first I want to apoligise fom my bad eng, I have a Rexon Firewire Hard drive with 60GB. and When I want to connect it to my computer all I have to do is to plugg it in and turn it on (Plug and play) the only probl is that when I now started it an error window came upp saying, "this unit is not readable with mac os x" do you want to initialize it ?... and the prob is this, and also when I start disktool I can se it, only it sais the disk is not on the desktop. and I cant reapear permissions or reagular repear and also it does not work klicking the button "put drive on desk..." I had this prob befor ony then I started with my osx disk and disktools and just started it, and restarted my computer and ther it was, but that doesent work anymore, it's realy important stuff on it so I dont want to erase it. what chould I do? /Philip ----------------------------- First rule of acting: Whatever happens, look as if it were intended.
