I followed instructions for reformatting this HD to MAC by partitioning etc with the Mac Journalled info. This seemed to work fine.

I then needed to reinstall the SMART WARE download. I thought i had done this byut when i open the software up it only shows the main hard drive not the WD mybook external hard drive - have i installed the download incorrectly??

Also - just checking that i started out doing the right thing - i want to transfer music files from a pc to this hard drive so that i can play them through my mac. Is this what i shoudl be doing or do i need to format it with Fat32?
