Hello Sir,

If this hard drive has been used on a PC you won't be able to open it on MAC,

To open you will need to format it on your MAC pc before using it!

I dont have a PC. The drive is new. i just opened it. Bought it at Best Buy. Plugged it in to my mac and nothing happened. It does not register it at all. I even tried USB cord and also firwire. There is no CD with it to install.
And Also it is compatible to a MacOS 10.4.11, which is what I have.
