I’ve got a Passport Essential SE that will not show up on my PowerBook G4 (Mac OS X 10.5.8 - 1.5 GHz PowerPC G4, 2 GB DDR SDRAM) Spoke with Tech support and they sent me a Y cable. The problem is the USB connectors will not reach accross the laptop, they are about 4" to short. Does anyone know of another cable manufacturer or another work around. The drive is for transfering large files from a Mac desktop to take off site and use with the Laptop.
I wouldn’t have kept the drive and written files to it if the support person had not been so sure this would work, so I’m desperate to find a way to use this drive.
