I've just switched the the wonderful Mac world but I have an issue with my exWindows external harddrive.
I have been using my Hitachi USB2 harddrive on windows XP without any problem. When I acquired my Mac I backed it up and reformated it in HFS+ (journaled) from the previous NTFS file format and then... impossible to read it. I can copy things on it but I can't read them.
When I run the disk utility to veify it, I receive the following message: "Verify volume failed with error Could not unmount disk".
I've tried to plug it directly on the Mac (it's normally connected thru a USB 2 HUB) - same story: when I turn it on, it takes ages to mount, I can see what's on it, I can copy things onto it but I can't copy from it.
The volume has no owner but the disk utility doesn't see any file on it (but the finder does).
I reformated it again but it didn't solve anything.
I was running Panther and recently upgraded to Tiger and it didn't solve anything either.
Can somebody help me? Should I consider buying another harddrive?
