I am trying to use the 1tb hard drive supplied by east west and my mac book pro says every single time I turn it on "the disk you inserted was not readable by this computer" if someone could help me rectify this problem id appreciate it! the drive is defo for mac as there is a mac sticker on the composers box, thanks!.
Thanks for replying, ok so im on disk utility and ive clicked on the 1tb hard drive, do i click on the partition tab? when I do it gives me a volume scheme drop down and there are up to 16 partitions available for selection?.
Or try this:
I’m getting an error during installation on a Mac. What should I do?
If permissions are set to READ ONLY on a particular folder that the installer needs to write to, nothing can be installed to that folder and the install will fail. Make sure folder permissions are set to READ & WRITE. Here’s how to do that:
1. Control-Click (or) Right-Click on the folder.
2. Go to “Get Info” in the menu.
3. Click on the triangle to the right of Sharing & Permissions.
4. Click on the padlock and enter the user name/password.
5. Ensure all privileges are set to Read & Write.
6. In the lower-left, just to the right off the +/- signs, click on the gear icon and choose to “apply to all enclosed items.”
Some common folders on which to check this are:
• Mac HD > Applications > East West
• Mac HD > Library > Application Support >Digidesign
• Mac HD > Library > Application Support >Digidesign>Plugins
Try accessing with another system to see if it is readable. As I understand the product, any Mac (current ones any way) should be able to access the drive. It is possible that the product is defective (not ready to make that call).
Ive tried using the hard drive on an Imac and I still get the same message mhmmm the drive should be formatted for a mac because i remember selecting that option and there was a sticker on the drive itself saying its for a mac but i dont know perhaps there has been a mix up...
Defective is starting to look more likely...im currently emailing the company but the replies from them are very slow.
