    Connecting Macbook Pro to Network Printer & Remote Disc
    Good afternoon guys & gals.
    Switching our office over to Mac and we are doing it slow, right now we have two macbook pro's. The one I am on currently is going to be the accounting computer and I need to access quickbooks files from our remote external hard drive.

    We have a verizon router that the desktops are connected to directly. Then we have a net gear R6300 wireless router hooked to that which the MacBooks run off of. The mac's will recognize the remote disk in the devices section of "finder" but I cannot access any information on it.

    I am also not able to access any information about the network printer. On our smaller macbook pro we can plug directly into the network through a cat 5 cable and print from there but with this new bigger pro it has no cat5 cable plug. It seems I am having the same issues trying to access the external hard drive and the printer.

    If you could please explain how I can access the information on the external hard drive I would greatly appreciate it!

    Thank you!

    Ok I have gone through and changed the sharing settings to allow for sharing of the printer and files but still nothing. I am assuming i may have to format the hard drive to mac software. How would i go about doing that and keeping all of the information in tact?

    I need some clarification... when you say "access" the information on the hard drive, are you referring to writing to the drive or just being able to read from it?

    You'll need to copy all the data off the drive on to another before formatting it. Otherwise you'll lose everything.
