I bought an external harddrive and was able to put said files onto the harddrive no problem, but then i tried to plug the harddrive into my mac laptop and it wouldn't read the drive at all, as in the little icon saying I have something plugged into my usb drive didn't pop up.
I don't know if its because I don't have enough room on my laptop for the harddrive, but even so it should at least /read/ it right?
That aside, I don't have my mac desktop set up yet as I have very little space and I was going to put it where my desktop PC is, so I was trying to avoid hooking it up until I was ready.
What would you guys suggest I do? I can still take the harddrive back as I have the receipt and the packaging. I've so far successfully transferred some files from my PC to my laptop using a flash drive but it's way tedious, and I'd really like this harddrive to work.
I'm really not good with computers at all. I know how to use them for art but I don't know how to maintain them very well, so any help would be much appreciated.
