OS X :: Write Whole HD In NTSF - Device Not Recognized

Jul 9, 2010

I was attempting to install Windows XP Pro through bootcamp and somehow wrote not only my entire external in NTSF but my whole harddrive. The techs at the Apple Store we able to fix my MacBook and they told me to take it home and preform a reinstall from Time Machine but when I tried that it kept saying "Device not Reconizable." I took it back and they found out that somehow I had written my external in NTSF during the XP install (which didn't work anyways). They told me to try "MacFuse" which will read NTSF files. My question is, is this the route to go? Also will I be able to get my Time Machine backups back and restore my MacBook back to Pre-Windows install?

OS X :: Unable To Write To NTSF Drive After Time Machine Backup

Jan 7, 2011

I've purchased a 2TB external drive, I downloaded and installed macfuse and ntfs-3g AND tuxera ntfs and I formatted the drive to ntfs. Everything was working perfectly (reading and writing) until I unplugged the drive form my computer. So when I plugged the drive back in, it could only read and no longer can write information.

What is going on? I didn't even turn off my computer, the only thing I did was backup my computer with time machine (onto a separate drive not the NTFS one) and plug the new drive back in. I've reinstalled all 3 programs and restarted my computer but nothing seems to be working.

Power Mac G5 :: USB Device Not Recognized?

Dec 30, 2007

I have a total of 10 USB devices connected to my G5 Mac, including hubs, printers and scanners. Most behave fine, but one or two cause minor problems. The worst offender is a Sierra Wireless 875U Aircard, which is a wireless broadband modem I got through AT&T. I use it for my Internet connection.

Every time I power up my Mac or bring it out of sleep, it won't recognize the 875U, even though it's plugged directly into the Mac's front panel USB port. I can't even see it on System Profiler. Having it in a different port or going to a hub port doesn't make any difference.

To make it work, I have to unplug it, wait a few seconds and plug it back in. My Mac then recognizes it and it works fine until I shut down the Mac or put it to sleep again. Granted, this is only a nuisance level problem, but it would be nice if the Mac recognized all the ports all the time. I'm running a duel G5 2.0 GHz under Mac OS 10.4.10. I see the exact same problem in my G4 iBook (1.0 GHz) also running Mac OS 10.4.10.

PowerPC :: IBook G3 Firewire Device Not Recognized?

Jun 19, 2008

I'm attempting to upgrade a family member 800mhz iBook G3 from 10.2 to 10.4 using my old iPod as the install drive. (Restored a DMG, etc) Only problem is that (other than being an ancient computer, I guess) is that said iBook doesn't see the iPod until after OSX loads (white spinny guy).

Tried holding Alt at bootup (not listed), setting it as the default boot device (just skips it and goes right to the HD), and just running it from OSX (reboots, straight back to OSX desktop).

Is there something I'm missing? Does this model G3 not allow detecting boot devices at start up? I'm kind of at a brick wall here. Should I just bite the bullet and do a target disk install?

Software :: CD / DVD Not Recognized - No Burning Device Found

May 11, 2007

I have two 15" Powerbook G4's, 1.67GHz, one has a Toshiba 80 GB hard drive (Powerbook 1), another one has a Toshiba 60 GB hard drive (Powerbook 2). Powerbook 1: The super drive on the 80GB hard drive takes CD's/DVD's but does not eject them, or recognize them. In System Profiler the Disc Burning section says "No burning device was found. If you are using an external device please make sure that it is connected and powered properly". I cannot boot of this CD drive or anything. Powerbook 2: Now the 60GB Powerbook works flawlessly, even though it has a non-oem Matshita DVD-RAM UJ-845S drive. I had to take the 60GB hd out of Powerbook 2 and install it into Powerbook 1. The darkest thing happened, Powerbook 1's CD drive started working without a problem. Powerbook 2 is now with the 80GB hard drive and without a functional CD drive.

I put the 60GB HD back into Powerbook 2, and the CD drive started working again. I put the 60GB HD into Powerbook 1 and left put it together because it is fully functional. Now I have the Powerbook 2 that still has problems with the cd drive. I have tried using 2-3 other hard drives (they were from windows machines though), still no luck on getting the CD drive to work. If I disconnect the 80GB Hard Drive, then I can boot from the CD drive. I just unplugged the internal hard drive, and attached another Powerbook (this one is 17"), and booted the 17" inch one into firewire mode, then started the Powerbook 2 and booted into the firewire HD. Now I'm looking at the System Profiler, and I'm seeing the disc burner.

My conclusions to this issue: It seems like all of the hard drives, except the 60GB one, can't seem to run along with the cd drive. This is not a motherboard or a CD drive problem, because both of the 15" computers can have everything working, depending on which hard drive is used. I heard that these CD drives have an issue of being setup in Cable Select, instead of Master. I tried using different firmware (I had to plug up the drive to a PC laptop and flashed the firmware with D100 firmware http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_firmware.php?download_id=2094 )
Extra Hard Drive information:
60GB Hard Drive: Toshiba MK6025GAS, DC+5V 0.7A
80GB Hard Drive: Toshiba MK8026GAX, DC+5v 1.0A

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Garmin Device Not Recognized As USB-drive?

May 30, 2012

when I connect my Garmin Edge 705 to the MacBook Pro (Mac OS X 10.7.4) the device won't mount as USB-drive instead it just goes into charging mode. This wasn't the case earlier with the MacBook Pro (>10.7.3) and this isn't the case with a MacBook running still on Snow Leopard. 

Therefore I assume that something has changed in the Mac OS X 10.7.4 particularly in the Finder?

OS X :: External Hard Drive Not Recognized - Unknown Device

Jan 31, 2010

Another one of those "external hard drive not recognized" problems: I am using a Mac Mini. The external LaCie drive is in one of those beautiful boxes designed by a guy named Porsche. It's connected via Fire Wire. I have my iPhoto library stored on it. It was working just fine for the past two days after I first connected it.

Now it does not show on the Desktop. It is identified only as "Unknown device" in "About This Mac." iPhoto doesn't recognize it. I've looked at the other threads on this subject here and have reset the PRAM. Disk Utility recognized it for a while and said the disk was OK. Now Disk Utility does not recognize it at all.

I turned off the drive and turned it back on. That resulted in an alarming series of beeps, almost like somebody was sending the Morse code symbol for "E" over and over again. I turned the drive off and then on again. Now the light goes on and the drive whirs nicely. I am using System 10.6.2. Or rather, at this point it is using me.

Nov 3, 2010

I know Macs don't play nice with NTSF drive and I don't need to do anything with it, other then to plug in a new 1.5TB drive I have and convert it into NTSF so I can plug it into my server.

Anyway I can format it because Disk Utility only gives you Fat32

Mac Pro :: Can't Write To Non OS Hard Drive

May 11, 2010

Starting today, when I try and write anything to my non-OS harddrive (with my music library and data on it), OSX gives me the error: "The data can't be read or written" The permissions seem to be fine. I can open files on the HD fine, but they open a little slow. So basically I only can't write to the drive. What's going on? Is my HD dying?

Hardware :: DVR-104 Won't Read Or Write DVD?

Mar 14, 2003

I have the PIONEER DVR-104 Drive in my MDD Dual 1Ghz G4 that has stopped reading DVD's. It still reads CD's just fine and will write CD-R's just fine. To get arround the problem (I need to be able to atleast read DVD's) I've installed a plain DVD drive in bay 2. This problem existed before I upgraded to 10.2.4 so it was there under 10.2.3 as well. Toast and the Apple System Profiler recognize it as a DVR-104, the proper drive. Lets see what else can I tell you... We are using Apple branded media. When I do drop a DVD-R in the drive whether blank or written it trys to read it for about 30 sec then spits it back out.

Hardware :: FireWire Can Read/write RAM?

Mar 8, 2008

I notice the security news that FireWire could be used to bypass your login password because it accesses your RAM.

That got me to thinking: Can you use FireWire to read/write the RAM of the 'puter next to you and could you use this "feature" to turn that RAM into a RAM disk for fast access?
