pornbooth made the switch to mac and needs some help

Recommended Posts

I dont know shit about a mac operating system and am having a lot of trouble figuring things out, I would really appreciate some help from the oontz.

 

I have a brand new computer so Im running whatever operating system is up to date.

 

 

 

 

First. How do I get my external hard drive to show up on my desktop when I plug it in? navigating to disk utility to open it sucks.

 

*btw i googled forever trying to find a solution

i can tell you from experience if your drive is not showing up in the finder window you might have to set up a partition for it. when i first picked up a mac i bought a external drive it wasnt plug n play for a mac but it was for windows i had to set up a partition which i didnt know how to do (still dont), so i just returned it for one that was configured for mac

it is most likely formatted to your old PC and your Mac isn't seeing it.

 

I have mac's only, i plug my external in and it pops right up as my "time machine" for back ups.
