Hello, I am trying to connect an external Maxtor harddrive

Customer Question

Hello, I am trying to connect an external Maxtor harddrive to my G4 powerbook. I can see the icon & am opening through disk utilities BUT that's as far as I can get. Please help me. Also do you know how I can upload WMA music files into I Tunes? Thank you & look forward to your reply. JJ

Since these are two unrelated questions, you probably should ask another quesation and put the WMA issue in there and I will deal with the hard drive for you.

Have you used this drive on this Mac before?

Is this a USB or Firewire drive? Does it have its own power supply if USB?

When you see it in Disk Utilities, do you try anything in there?

Let me know,
