Hello. I am new here and everyone pointed this way to have answers to my problem.

I had a PC. Switched to MAC. I Have a DJ Buisness, i had a external hard drive with all my 1tb media data on it. The external HDD Broke and I bought an enclosure but when i plug it in it says ''the disk you connected is not readable. Initialise... Ignore Eject.''

I can see the disk in the disk utility but of course i cannot erase data on it...


Any idea?

The hard drive is probably formatted to NTFS which is read only on a Mac. You need a software driver to access the drive as read and write. The best one is Paragon NTFS from Paragon Software for $19.95. Buy it from here.

Yeah i bought the actual software but unfortunately my Drive is still undetected. In the Drive Utility it is but only to be formated :S so i instaled a virtual windows machine on my mac and found out that the partition is messed up.. going to see if i can fix it someway...
