I am running Snow Leopard. I have a few drives on my PC that I have shared, three are NTFS and one is FAT32. I can read and write to the FAT32 on just fine, everything works as it should with it. I can view the NTFS shared drives, though when I try to access them I get this error. The operation can't be completed because the original item for "Drive Name" can't be found. I can read NTFS USB drives fine, and with NTFS Mounter running I can write to them all the same. However this is not the case whatsoever with networked NTFS drives. I am sharing them from a Windows 7 x64 PC, my Mac is a 1st gen Intel Core Duo 1.66.
i have a 1tb lacie external hard drive with 2 partitions. 1 hfs+ and 1 ntfs with 33 gig. i wanted to put windows 7 on the ntfs disk and followed a guide and did
SELECT DISK 1, CLEAN, CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY, SELECT PARTITION 1,ACTIVE, FORMAT FS=NTFS, ASSIGN, EXIT
When it was done my whole hd was ntfs and my hfs partition was gone. i tried Testdisk and did a quick search and a deep search (took me 2 days), but no result. i also used Mac File Recovery to find a lose volume or lost files but no result. Now i'm using r-studio and performing a scan but i think it won't find my lost HFS+ partition.
Is there a way to save my HFS partition? My entire photo life is on it. should i bring it to a recovery specialist? or does someone has the answer? maybe reformat it as hfs?
I have an Intel-based system that I have already repartitioned to give me 40GB for OSX. I am using a disk by the name of "iAKTOAS" or something like that. I have already gone through Disk Utility to try and format my unused partition, but it doesn't show up.
-How can I partition that "free" partition in Windows XP? -What program should I use to do this, preferably free? -How is the MBR going to work? How should I set the system up to allow me to choose from XP or OSX? -What else do I need to know about OSX "Journaled", "Extended", or just "OSX"?
I have two external hard disks, one formatted as FAT32 and another formatted as NTFS†.Both cannot be seen in Finder when plug in. Only another one formatted MAC OS extended can.†how to dispay my drive in the Finder (I don't want to reformat it as I have lot of contents and need to be read in my window computer.)Im running Mac OS 10.7.3 on my iMAC
My Seagate hard rive is saying that it is formatted NTFS when I plug it into my new mac. I have only ever used it on a mac and it didn't ever say this when i used it on my old computer.. Im not quite sure what to do because I have no where to put all my stuff to reformat it?
Also I made sure when I bought the hard drive that it was both windows and mac compatible...
I wanted a larger Windows partition so I went into Boot Camp assistant and deleted the Windows partition, made a new one and proceeded to insert my Windows CD. It went through the installation process and i selected the right drive/partition to have a quick NTFS format. After the format, my MacBook restarted and stalled. Needless to say, Boot Camp ran a quick NTFS format on the entire drive.
Now, is there any way to recover any of the files that were quickly formatted? Is there any good software out there that may be able to recover anything?
My iPod is formatted MAC and I want to change it to be able to read it on a PC and add more music. How do I do this without losing my music? What software is available? Please explain fully, as my knowledge of computers and software is moderate, but not extensive.
I have a portable external hard drive formatted for mac and I want to be able to view my movies that are on it through my games console. I believe both consoles only read Fat 32 so what are my options to get the consoles to read the HD?
I have two computers: a Windows Vista based one and a Mac OS X. I take photos and view them on both computers. After I formatted the CD card and took photos on my DSLR I tried to view them on the Mac and get the following screen:†If Repair Disk is unavailable, click Verify Disk. If the disk needs repairs, you'll be able to repair it from Recovery HD.†If you have a Permission problem with a file installed by the Mac OS X installer, click Repair Disk Permissions.
Disk Description: Generic storage device media Write Status: Read/Write S.M.A.R.T Status: Not supported Partition Map Scheme: Master Boot Record Format: MS-DOS (Fat 32)
I suspect the last item is the culprit due to OS incompatibility and I am aware that there is a software program (Paragon) that can read both types of files. But in the meantime, can I recover the photo files using Repair Disk, or whatever? I don't want to lose the files if, by using Repair Disk, I wipe out the contents of the CF card.
I just got hit with a double whammy. :Imac running Panther did something odd to the it's external drive. That was formatted fat 32. I plan to see if anyone in the nearby computer repair class can recover those files, but in the meantime (days!) the gremlin also hit the macbook, putting it in range of a spill. So now the only backups I have are on the second external drive formatted with a mac format on the macbook. This one was done with 2 partitions, one for Time Machine, one for the stuff I was yanking over from the other hard drive.
So now I find that Imac can't even SEE the second drive. (Not that I expected it to see or recognize Time Machine, just the other part.) My macbook is on downtime until it gets checkup/cleaning (with all mac places nearby apparently closed thru New Years and classes I need it for starting right after) Does anyone know a way to get "Ye Old Imac" to see the other drive? Is there a driver or something? I know it's very hard to find older software (most online sites don't go back past Tiger), but it is a mac format for goodness sake! I can't even be 100% sure if it's something to do with a newer mac format for the external drive or "Ye Old Imac" is just being grumpy. It seems to see the other USB stuff but it has been known to lose touch with them.
I have an external drive that is still formatted for OSX journaled and I need to read it on my XP system. I used macdrive in the past but the demo expired and it will not let me try it again. Is there any free software out there that will let me do this? I do not want to pay $50 for software I will only use once.
Before you peek into this topic to say "OS X can only read NTFS, not write to it", save the effort; I already know that. I have a 1TB WD MyBook Studio. I partitioned this drive into 2 parts, an Mac OS Extended partition and, using Win 7, an NTFS partition. Now my MBP can mount and see its partition just fine, but it refuses to mount the other NTFS partition, seeing it in Disk Utility as MS-DOS (Fat) format with a weird name. How do I get the MBP to mount the NTFS partition?
I have an external hard drive, it's formatted in NTFS, sort of like a 'bridge' between my Macbook and my Windows machine. I was able to write to the NTFS drive from my Mac using MacFUSE and NTFS-3G. A few days ago, the hard drive showed up as 'read-only', and is still that way now. I've tried repairing disk permissions, reinstalling the NTFS applications, nothing seems to change the write permissions back.
I may end up getting another external hard drive & would like to be able to stay with NTFS so I can use it with either PCs or macs, there is a PC in my home & I would like to be able to use it between the PC & my macbook pro. Does anybody know of good reliable software that does not hog resources that will enable me to read & write NTFS on my macbook pro?
I have a Windows/DOS formatted external harddrive adn want to access/write/delete data from it using my MCP with Lion OS. I downloaded NTFS-3G 2011.1.15 and installed and restarted my Mac but then got this error when OS started and I cant see my Windows external disk any more. I am not 100% sure if the format of this disk was FAT or NTFS.
