    my 2014 rMB picks up Mac-formatted HDD's - yet not FAT32 or whatever.
    wife's 2012 MBAir has no issues with this at all.
    is it the rMB or is it Yosemite?
    any assistance much appreciated …

    This forum's basically a ghost town. Try seeking help on reddit.com/r/mac.

    Maybe try installing Tuxera or NTFS-3G?

    seems to be the case these days - sadly
    thanks for the heads-up.
    will look at your suggestions.
    much obliged
