how do you find an external drive on a mac

1 Answer from the Community

  • The majority of external drives are formatted with the NTFS file system, which only works with Windows and Linux. It will be read-only on a Mac. If you need read-write access, you will need to re-format the drive with the FAT32 filesystem.
