Intel Mac :: Thunderbolt Dock For External Hard Drive?

May 31, 2012

I'm trying to find a Thunderbolt Dock for External Hard Drive.  One of these http://www.topbuy.com.au/tbcart/pc/External-SATA-Hard-Drive-Docking-Station-USB- Interface-937p3180.htm 

But with Thunderbolt connector instead of USB, Firewire, eSATA etc.  

Do these exist?  The only thing I could find close is the Seagate Go Flexi Adapter, but that only works for those drives.

Mac OS X (10.7)

MacBook Pro :: 13" (Late 2009) Won't Recognize New Hard Disk?

Apr 9, 2012

I recently tried to upgrade my original 160GB HDD to a 500GB Scorpio Blue. I formatted the drive to HFS+ and installed Lion on it while it was in an USB enclosure.When i restart the computer, HDD boots off of the enclosure and it is fully functional and I can view it and my original drive.However, whenever I take my new HDD out of the enclosure and install it into my mbp all it gives me is the flashing ? error and it is not visible in boot utility either. I've tried everything I can think of to get this to work. I don't believe it is the HDD seeing as it can boot off the enclosure. What exactly are my options to fixing this issue?

Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.1)

MacBook :: Late 2009 White DVD Drive Error?

Mar 19, 2010

So my macbook is just a few days old, but i think i found something weird with the dvd drive. Its my first mac, so i dont know about this. But is it common that i have to push the whole dvd/cd inside the drive before it know its a dvd/cd there, its just a tiny bit of cd/dvd to spot before it takes it and sucks it inside. I thought, when over the half of the cd/dvd in, it sucks the cd/dvd inside automaticly. Seems weird i have to push it all inside before something happens. Is this normal? Also it makes alot of noise at the start, when it sucks it in

Intel Mac :: 2009 20" Slow/Unresponsive Hard Drive Access

Mar 11, 2012

I stopped by a friends house to try and help them with an early 2009 20" iMac that started stalling on startup (sometimes before their login screen, and sometimes after).  The computer didn't exhibit this behaviour at all, then overnight, it behaved as stated and never once allowed them to get far enough to launch an application or open the Finder. 

When I arrived, rebooted and held down Command + Option + P + R, but it had no effect on the problem.   I then booted off the original OSX discs and ran Disk Utility.  At first it seemed slow to complete, but before long (a few minutes) the Verify Disk finished without any errors.  Next, I attempted "Repair Disk Permissions" and noticed that this was taking a very long time, +10 minutes.  That said, it did complete without any problems, albiet slowly. 

Unfortunately, this did not allow me to login, and I never made it to the login screen.  Being a close friend, I offered to take the computer home and try to copy as much data as I could through Target Disk Mode over Firewire. 

My first attempt to copy her Home directory got 25% of the way through the roughly 4 GB of data, then stopped.  I rebooted and tried again, with even less success than before (I could barely access Folders let alone copy after the reboot).  I attempted to recreate the "successful" attempt by unplugging the computer and letting it sit for a few hours.  Sure enough, I was able to copy data from the Target Disk Mode mounted drive, but after about 1 GB of copying the access to the hard slowed to a crawl (a few kilobytes per minute) then halted completely. 

I've repeated the above process to slowly but surely copy the entire 4 GB of home directory data, and am about to call it quits after salvaging what was important to her. 

Question:  Is this the sign of a failing hard drive close to the end of its life, or is this something potentially more serious with the logic board?  I've only come across a stubborn drive like this with an external drive that was close to failure, and assume this is the case.

Intel Mac :: Where Are The Diagnostic LEDs Located On A 27" (late 2009, 3.06GHz)

Apr 1, 2012

My iMac stopped booting. The fans and hard-drive spin up but the screen stays black and I can hear that the hard drive isn't been read after the initial spin up. 

I decided to open it up to take a look at the diagnostic LEDs to see if it might help me diagnose the problem (the most obvious failure is the logic board). I can't find the LEDs anywhere, where are they? Does my iMac even have diagnostic LEDs? 

The other possibility is that I can't find the lights because they aren't lighting up. The fans, the hard drive and the CD drive all spin up fine so at least I know that there is some power running though it.

IMac :: External Storage - Ssd Drive - 2TB Hard Drive

Nov 22, 2010

I'm curious what people use for external storage on their iMacs. I have a Mac Pro which is getting a little long in the tooth. I'm debating whether to get a new Mac Pro or to get an iMac, which would be a pretty good speed bump from my Mac Pro 1,1. I'd get the ssd drive, and the 2TB harddrive and get aftermarket RAM. But what I like about the Mac Pro is the upgrades you can do. And I like the four hard drive bays, for storage and backup. I've got over 3 TB of photos and music/tv/movies, so I'm going to need an external drive. In addition, I'd like to be able to backup everything. Is there an elegant way to do this on an iMac with an external drive that isn't super loud and hot?

MacBook Pro :: Make External Hard Drive Hook Up To Thunderbolt Port

Sep 2, 2014

So I have 2 USB Ports on my Mac. I use both of them and I am looking to get a Mic for recording youtube stuff. I use one for my wireless mouse, and I use the other for an external hard drive because the amout of space on my Mac is no-where near enough for what I am going to use up. 

I am just wondering if there is a way I can either:

1. Get more USB ports (if its possible)

2. Hook up my mouse to a Thunderbolt port (again if that is possible)

or 3. Hook up my External Hard-Drive to the thunderbolt port. 

Info:
MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mavericks (10.9.2), I have 2 USB (3.0), 2 Thunderbolt

OS X :: External Hard Drive For Storage?

Oct 7, 2010

I just bought an external hard drive (My Passport for Mac) because my Macbook's hard drive is almost full. I did not want it necessarily for backup purposes, but rather I wanted to be able to store music, docs, etc. that I might want to access in the future, but want to remove from my computer for now.

Should I use Time Machine? Will time machine let me access my hard drive to obtain certain files when needed? Or is Time Capsule's sole purpose to backup everything on my computer?
