    Open Max, then open Preferences (CMD+,), go to the Formats "tab", select the format you wish to transcode to from the "Available output formats:" and add it via the + sign to the above list and set everything to your liking.
    Then go to the Output "tab" and select the option you like under the Locations: Output files: dropdown list.
    Then close the preferences and add the files and folders you like and click the "Convert" button.
    Or do you need more simplified help in navigating Mac OS X and such?
    Maybe you could be more specific with what you actually need help with?

    Have you made sure you scrolled completely up in that empty Finder window?
    And what does it say under "Format" in the GET INFO window of that HDD?
    Have you also taken a look into the Trash while the HDD is connected, maybe it somehow landed there?
