in windows explorer
please right click on computer
then click manage
then select disk management
I have done that
I have selected disk mgmt
It shows four different Volumes
Including the C Drive and the Recovery (D) Drive
Should I also be seeing the Ext Hard Drive there??
do you see the external hard drive?
yes it should be listed there
Not seeing it. Let me try one more thing.
can you see it in device manager?
Should I be looking under Disk Drives in Device Mgr??
but you said there wasn't anything there
so now check device manager
under which folder do I look in device manager?
under disk drives?
Its not showing up there either
can you try to plug it back into the mac
and format it there
here's a guide on how to do that on the mac http://osxdaily.com/2012/01/04/format-an-external-hard-drive-or-usb-flash-drive-for-mac-os-x/
sure. Let me go grab the Mac. Brb
so I assume that I want to reformat the drive in MS DOS (FAT) while I am in the Disk Utility function on the Mac??
Great. It now is recognized Drive on the PC.
have a great weekend
bonuses much appreciated
