External Drive Disabled
« on: August 08, 2018, 08:05:21 am »
I have a Buffalo external disk drive model HG-PE320U2, it was borrowed by my friend and he accessed it using Mac computer, he said he just copied some movies.

I was surprised when i plugged it to my windows laptop it was disabled. I have tried to enable it at Device manager, but windows can't enable it.

We tried to plugged it the Mac laptop but it is also inaccessible.

Can anyone please help me. Thank you.

Are you sure he didnt just format it to the MAC file system (HFS+), if this is the case then Windows cannot read it and it needs to be reformatted to NTFS in Disk Management in Windows.
PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / LSRecovery.exe file.
