"You have inserted a disk containing no volumes that Mac OS X can read. To use the unreadable volumes, click Initialize. To continue with the disk inserted, click Continue."
If I click "Continue", nothing happens, and I can't work out how to open something like "Device Manager" to access the drive.
If I click "Initialize", I have to format the drive, which is fine - but then Windows will not recognize it, so I can't transfer any files.
I read that I should format the drive in Windows in FAT32. But there is not option for FAT32 in the format menu, only NTFS. I also read that you could use the command prompt by typing "format x: fs:fat32". This appeared to work, but when I try to access the drive in Windows it tells me it is not formatted and I need to format it first, which brings up the menu with only NTFS as an option.
I thought this data transfer would be reasonably straightforward but this has got me pretty frustrated!
Does anybody have a solution?
