In addition, you can also transfer all photos on your iPhone, including those stored in Camera Roll, Photo Library, and Photo Stream from iPhone to the external drive on your Mac. To complete the task, the only thing you need to do is connect your iPhone to your Mac with a USB cable and then run the program.
You should really ask this in the Windows 8 forum but you should just be able to copy and paste. If you run into access denied issues, you don't have the proper permissions set. Download the zip file located, extract and double click to merge then right click the external drive and 'Take Ownership'. Hi 10 Crackers, Thank you for your answer however I am still having a problem with windows 8 accepting the My Passport Essential drive.It does not recognize any of the content on the drive???? Do you have any suggestions???? The old computer has xp OS installed and the new computer has windows 8OS installed.
I just bought the my passport wd today and already reprogrammed it to accept videos and other files by just dragging them in. When i unplug it and plug it back in, the files are still there so i know they’re saving. But when i plug the hard drive into another computer, none of the files are showing up.
Is this just because im trying to view mac based files on a pc? And if not, how can i convert/ transfer them onto the pc? The main reason i bought this thing was so i could move vidoes and music from one computer to the next, while also having all my media saved on one device.
Is there no way it can transfer files to another computer, or is it solely a back up machine? I have no idea how to do anything regarding these questions and IF you can help i would greatly appreciate a slight walk through, if possible. Thank you to anyone that answers.
