Hello and thanks for reading,
I'm trying to transfer all the data from my old desktop PC to my new macbook pro using a Seagate External HDD 250GB. Problem is, when I plug the external HDD into my notebook, no files show up. It says "1 item, 205.35 GB available." I'm confused. What can I do?

This may be a stupid question, but have you actually put anything on the drive from your old PC?

Another question. What file system is the external drive formatted as? Is it even formatted?
