I have a LACIE external hard drive. today i copied files onto it from a MAC, the hard drive is recognised by the MAC when i plug it in and turn it on, and is accessable.
now the problem.. i have connected it to my PC, the computer recognises the drive, although it does not appear in "my computer" i am unable to access it.
i have gone to the properties of the device, and under "volumes" every item is blank, Disk, Type, Status, Partition Style, Capacity, Unallocated space, Reserved space (with a "-"),
there is a button to click "Populate"... i am worried by clicking this it may erase the data on the drive...
what is the result of clicking "Populate"?
This is consistant on my other PC (Windows XP),
its connected via firewire
