I have a 6 month old WD external hard drive that has previously worked on my Mac Book Pro. However today it is unrecognizable in on my desk top and in the disc utility.

Any info/insight would be greatly appreciated. The lights are blinking on the external and it sounds like it's working fine.

Thanks.

I feel like an idiot about asking a question about where to ask a question, but bear with me I'm new to mac and this forum.

I'm guessing I should ask it in the apps and games section, but I don't want to be trolled all over for asking in the wrong zone.

and hi im new to mac my name is Aub. :]

Although I think you've posted this question in the wrong section, I'm still going to answer it.

If the desktop is a Windows-machine, you might have formatted the HDD in HFS+, which is the standard file system for Macs (such as NTFS / FAT32 for Windows) and HFS+ isn't readable in Windows.

You could check in Disk Utility on your MacBook Pro how the HDD is formatted.

I decided to come here to look for some troubleshooting advice (not that we need much on our Macs!) and to ask a few questions about short cuts etc.
I'm 40 something and somewhat new to Apple products (used them for approx. 2 years).

Welcome and enjoy the forums ... very helpful and knowledgeable people around here.

The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?

Welcome all yé newcomers ! The first rule of Fight clu.... oh wait, wrong place, sorry. In any case, just a tip for you guys. Most general questions have most likely been asked already. If you search and find a thread based upon the topic you were curious about, chances are that you'll have an easier time getting an basic understanding of the issue, as well as a faster reply. And of course, you'll have a lot less responses such as: "please search the forums, this topic has been beaten to death" etc..

And if you can't find what you're looking for, then PM schweb at least 30 times a day about it, he LOVES that.

Most of all, have fun!

Doug

Just joined up today.
Bought a MacBook Pro last week.

I love playing piano/keyboards. But I have no computer skills.
I am looking for any advice with regards to Music Software such as Cubase, Logic, etc, etc.

Hopefully I will learn heaps from this forum.

Regards, Justin.
