Passport not working properly on Mac


I have had my Passport for a while and it worked perfectly with my PC. I now have a Mac, and for some reason I can only sync my passport when backing up my Mac, not just drag and drop. Please help.

Do you know how the drive is formatted? If it is NTFS (Windows) then it is read only on Mac. NTFS-3G will solve that. Also there are some compatibility issues with the newest versions of Mac like Lion I think. I don’t know much about Macs.

I updated the firmware on my Passport in MACBOOK running SL.

The firmware hung. Now when I conenct the same, its not detected.

How do I re-format and install the basic firmware once again?

(Given the fact that the drive is not being detected) 

Thanks in Advance.
