    Specs:
    2009 13" Macbook Pro. 4gb ram, 160gb HD, 2.26 GHZ. The love of my virtual life.
    External HD from PC on my Mac...where is it?
    So I just borrowed a 160 GB drive from a mate so that I could use it on my 13" Macbook pro, but it won't show up anywhere. The light shows that it's on, and it works fine with PC, but refuses to play nice with my mac. Any ideas or suggestions welcome. I am a newly switched.

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB flash memory, 3.3GHz, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra beta.
    First question is how is the drive formatted? And does the drive appear in Disk Utility? If it does do not change the formatting as then your mate's PC may be unable to recognise it. Best suggestion is get your own external and format as you wish.
