OS X :: Camcorder Showing Up In Disk Utility And IPhoto But No Longer In Finder?

Jul 17, 2009

I have a JVC Everio HD camcorder and am having some trouble importing the video. This morning, the camcorder was recognized by Finder and I could enter and view the files. However, the files are in .MOD/MP4 format so they would not import directly into iMovie.

This afternoon, I found a tutorial on how to convert the files so plugged my camcorder in again, only to find that Finder is no longer acknowledging it. It is recognized in iPhoto and Disk Utility.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: All External Hard Drives Stopped Showing Up In Both Finder And Disk Utility?

May 12, 2012

i have this strange issue that occured just out of nowhere without me (knowingly) having contributed anything to it.yesterday i launched my iMac and my external firewire drive wasn't showing up in neither the finder nor on the desktop. i instantly thought about a hard drive crash, but soon tried other things to evaluate (or not) my guess. 

for instance, i unplugged the drive waited a few minutes before i plugged it in again. since this iomega drive is also equipped with a regular usb port i also switched cables and tried connecting it via the iMac usb sockets as well as via an usb hub without any luck. the drive still won't show up. so i launched the Disk Utility, to see if the drive needs some checking/repairing, but to my surprise it wasn't showing in Disk Utility either. 

thus far i only considered this to be an issue with only this particular external drive, but when i eventually switched on a 2nd external drive (this time an usb drive i use for Time Machine) that drive also refused to show up in either the Finder or the Disk Utility app. 

curious as i was, i then fired up a 3rd and 4th external drive and now had all 4 drives running at the same time. none of which were showing up, just as if they weren't even connected with the iMac. 

this strikes me as more than odd. i've heard about hard drive failures and crashes. they just occur over time. maybe and under some very strange coincidences it is possible that two external hard drives quit their jobs at the very same time, but seriously .... 4 of them?? i hardly think so. 

well, maybe it's the iMac's usb/firewire controller that's causing the trouble, i thought. but then again, my other connected devices (iPhone, iPad, Printer, Scanner, eyeTV) are functioning and get detected just fine as far as i can tell. 

i have no idea what's going on. i dismiss the idea of 4 external drives having crashed all at the same time just as much as i don't think that the iMac's usb/firewire controller has got any issues. re-formatting any of the 4 drives is out of the question and even if i'd consider such desperate measures, the Disk Utility wouldn't let me re-format anything anyhow, because the drives aren't listed there. i wish i could just use my Time Machine to resolve the issue but, as i mentioned earlier, i can't access the Time Machine because it also won't show up.

MacBook Air :: Memory Stick Inserted Does Not Appear Under Remote Devices In Finder

Aug 22, 2014

I have a MacBook Air. I inserted  memory stick , but it did not appear in the Finders list for Devices / Remote Discs. When I removed it, a box opened telling me I did so incorrectly. I know how to eject remote devices, but if it was not listed, I could not do it properly. Why did it not appear under Remote Discs?

MacBook Pro :: Folder With Question Mark At Startup - Disk 0 Showing In Disk Utility

Jun 24, 2014

I get this question mark along with a folder when starting up. I tried holding down the option key when turning on the power and then I get an internet recovery along with a globe. I click on the arrow below it and it takes maybe 15 minutes to start up. Then i get this disk utilities screen. I'm now unable to do anything. When going into disk utility, disk 0 shows with Mac OS X base system underneath it. All the clickable buttons are faded out. Is there something wrong with the hardrive? and where could i get this fixed? There isn't a warranty on it.

OS X :: External Hdd Not Showing Up Even In Disk Utility?

Aug 15, 2009

I've been having trouble with my Western Digital 160GB HD, its one of the MyPassport ones or what not. It used to work like a charm and had for a while but a couple of days ago it just stopped being able to be read or even recognized on Macs. I tried this laptop and another macbook pro and both would not show the HD on the desktop or even Disk Utility. When I open the Disk Utility when the ExHD is plugged in, I just get that loading circle and it will just do that indefinitely. Same thing with System Profiler as well.

I don't believe I damaged it in anyway, I hear no clicking and it seems to "boot" smoothly when it's plugged in, so would this mean its a corruption issue? I have been plugging this in to different Macs recently, (3 total) and one of which runs Leopard while the other two run Tiger. Would that cause the issue? (the reason I ask is that this all started after I had plugged it into the different OS.) I haven't tried to plug it into a PC yet, i'm going to do that today but I had tried doing the CMD + Option+ P + R reset till the second beep and I also did a hard reset by unplugging everything and waiting a bit then holding the start button down until it beeps.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Disk Utility Showing A Dmg

Apr 9, 2012

I was going to run Disk Permissions and when I opened it up, there is a decrypted file.dmg showing. Here is it's path:/var/folders/2d/vmlqi1 d0gzcs7mxi nnl 1w0000gn/T /decryptedFile.dmg...I opened it and saw that it has something to do with installing Adobe Flash Player. I remember downloading and installing it a couple of days ago. I've adonw this previously, but never had the disk image show up in Disk Utility before. How can I get rid of it? It seems to be in a folder calledl "T" that I can't find anywhere.

OS X :: Disk Utility Showing Low Free Space

Jan 6, 2009

I am using a Mac Mini, Which is having a capacity of 74.2 GB. Hardly I made use of 15 or 16 GB of that. As I felt some slowness, I tried running "Disk Utility". Recently I found that the free space is only 2.4GB, instead of around 55GB..

Disk Utility is showing
USED SPACE :71.8GB

If i am calculating all folders in "Machintosh HD" (Application, Library,System, etc..), it wil come around 14-15 GB only.

Hardware :: New Internal HD Not Showing In Disk Utility

Jun 24, 2008

I just replaced the internal hard drive on my G4 iBook. My problem is the drive is not showing up in Disk Utility, the system install disk, or when I have the iBook in target mode and connected to my tower. I believe the old drive had died. When I ran the Hardware Test on it, I received an error code on Mass Storage. After installing the new drive and running the Hardware Test, the Mass Storage passed. I take that as a good sign.?

Before cracking the iBook back open, I was wanting to find out what all the problem may be and what things to check while I have it open since that is not that quick of an operation. I'm already assuming to check the connections on the drive. But if they weren't secure, would it still pass the Hardware Test?

OS X :: USB Photoreaders Not Showing On Desktop / Disk Utility Seems Unable To See Them

Oct 11, 2009

I have two USB cardreaders. One is (I think) a USB 1, unbranded. The other is a USB 2 branded Seitec). Our cameras both use Sony Memory Stick Pro Duos). They both of worked with both my wife and my iMacs under 10.5.11. Both machines (hers from 2006, mine an Intel Core 2 Duo from 2007) have been happily upgraded to SL 10.6.1... but now the cardreaders work with her machine, but not with mine. They don't mount on the desktop. I have tried various combinations ... attaching them through keyboard /back of iMac, powered USB hub. Sometimes they are recognised by System Profiler, sometimes not! Disk Utility seems unable to see them at all, so I can't get it to mount them.

However, when I leave the card in my camera and connect it direct to the keyboard (or whatever socket I choose!) the computer recognises the camera immediately I switch it on, and downloads quite happily

OS X Mavericks :: (10.9.4) Files Show In Disk Utility But Not In Finder

Sep 3, 2014

Having trouble with my backup drive. It's a 1TB WD My Passport Ultra. 

The drive mounts in Finder, but is extremely slow. In Disk Utility, the drive shows the correct disk space usage and number of files; but in Finder it only shows the folders/files at the root level of the drive, and each has a size of zero bytes with no items:

What is happening? How can I access the data (it's obviously still there if DU shows the files) and (possibly) fix this?

Hardware :: Usb Drive In System Profiler But Not In Finder Or Disk Utility?

Jan 1, 2008

I purchased a black MacBook (10.4.11) last may and it's my first Mac. Thus far, I have only had one problem and that is that my I can't see my Motorola Z6m in finder or disk utility (but it is in system profiler). I also do not see it in Terminal under /Volumes. Inside the phone is a 2GB Verbatim microSD card that works fine in my card reader on the same machine. On a side note, bluetooth works fine.

The phone works as expected in the PCs I've tried it in, including a parallels vm running XP on the MacBook (I don't have access to any other Macs) which led me to believe it was a formatting issue, but then the card shouldn't work in the card reader either and it should still show up in disk utitlity. Am I not correct?

I have tried rebooting, unplugging/replugging the device, removing the battery, and reinstalling OS X (I wanted to do it to get rid of Unsanity's APE anyways). I have plugged it into either port on the MacBook with the same result. I have also emailed motorola tech support. Additionally, I have done quite a bit of googling and have found other people with the same issue, but none of the suggestions have worked for me or were otherwise unworkable (some suggested downgrading to 10.4.9).

I have also heard of trying it in a powered usb hub, but the thing is, why does it work through the virtual machine if a powered hub is required? Or am I missing something in this?

Hardware :: Seagate Hard Drive Not Recognized (Finder / Disk Utility)

Jan 14, 2009

I have purchased a Seagate 500gb 2.5 inch laptop hard drive to replace my feeble 120gb drive. I am trying to set up this drive using carbon copy cloner before changing it over, I'm using an external enclosure for this. The problem I'm having is the hard drive isn't recognized at all.
It's not showing up in finder or disk utility so I don't know how to format the drive.

I'm using Leopard 10.5.6

The instructions that cam with the enclosure mention setting the hard drive to function in master mode, what does this mean? I don't want to go to all the effort of changing the hard drive if there's some sort of problem, and I would rather clone my drive before removing it too.

OS X :: Disk Utility, Finder, Or Terminal Is Reporting Wrong Volume Size?

Aug 26, 2009

I partitioned my disk using Terminal's diskutil. I decided i didnt need the partition anymore, so i deleted it (using Disk Utility.app) and added the free space to my mac partition. Basically, Finder and Terminal dont show the free space added back, and Disk Utility shows the space added back to the disk. I tried restarting, repairing disk (which coincidentally had an unrelated problem), repairing permissions, but the problem is still happening

OS X Mavericks :: BOOTCAMP Partition Not Visible In Finder - Not Mountable In Disk Utility

Sep 3, 2014

Did a fresh Bootcamp install of Windows 7 on my MBA running 10.9.4, switched back and forth a few times and now the BOOTCAMP partition doesn't show up in the left pane in Finder. I hopped into Disk Utility to see what was going on and it was there, just not mounted, so I clicked mount, was told it couldn't be mounted, and it suggested I run first aid on it. I clicked Verify, nothing useful to me, then Repair, and got quite a lot of feedback that I do not understand, and then after that it was still unmountable. 

I tried to copy everything it said into a pastebin because it was very long with lots of starting and stopping and counting percents inbetween, but it was over 500kb and that's the limit for free users on pastebin, so here's a trimmed version. [URL] .... I tried booting into Windows after that, and it jumped into System Repair. Apparently, according to Windows, my Boot Manager is missing or corrupt... and since I still can't access it from the Mac side of things, I thought I'd just wipe the partition in BootCamp Utility and start over.

Except instead, I get this error: "Your disk could not be restored to a single partition.An error occurred while restoring the disk to a single partition." 

Disk Utility let me wipe it but I still can't mount it, either, again suggesting I run first aid on it (this does nothing). I can't boot into the Mac's Recovery mode either. It just jumps straight to Internet Recovery. When I hold option upon boot, all three partitions show up (Mac, Recovery, Windows), but when I click the recovery one it loads for a bit and then the laptop just instantly shuts off.... Have I corrupted my internal harddrive perchance?

MacBook Pro :: Fast Type Of Memory-stick?

I've just come across this product at belkin. A 16 GB solid state drive, that flush fits in the express-port of the MBP.

Does this mean, that you can use this as a typical SSD if it is left in the port at all does? Running apps and stuff directly from this? Or is it just a fast type of memory-stick?
