Good morning everyone.
First, I apologize for my english which will appear as “bad” because I am french. I will do the best to be undersantable.
Then, I would like to precise that I have been searching an answer for days, and weeks before posting here. Here’s my problem (so annoying that I today regret to have bought my WD hard drive).
I have a MyPassport Essential SE (for both PC / Mac) - the black one!
On the first launch, I deleted all the original files WD so I can’t use SmartWare anymore.
But, I would like to be able to use my hard drive both on pc and Mac (because I have one of each) and use the backup software only on Mac.
I formated my drive in FAT32, because it’s a format working for pc/mac at the same time (I read it around here). But now, when I try to install Smartware with the image dmg I found in the download section, it says that there is no inscriptible partition plugged.
I tried to format it to every format purposed in Disk Utility, but at the best my drive can be used but impossible for it to be detected by smartware.
First, I need a working way of recovering files on the drive (like if I plugged it for the first time),
If both are impossible, I want it functionnal for mac.
Thank you very much for reading, I hope I will find a solution here.
