Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have had two Seagate disks - this and a 3.5 - fail within a year necesitating low level recovery to recover data. The case does not even open cleanly, so is hard to reuse. Avoid - buy Maplins WD Passport instead.

I recently bought this item. However, I run an iMac and was wondering whether there is a similar item specially formatted for mac?If so, I would like to exchange it.

Asked by: Judge
If the item has been opened exchange would not be an option you would just need to reformat it. Please see the link below https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201909

I have lots of photos on CDs and DVD films - my laptop has no CD drive, so would this be compatible and would I need any other equipment to use it?

Asked by: susief
This should appear as a mass storage drive once connected. If connecting to a Mac, you may need to re-format to a Mac compatible file system, but no additional equipment should be required to connect to a computer. However you would need to use a computer with a disc drive to copy the CD contents to the drive for storage.
