Thank God It's Friday

Although I was only at work for 3 days this week it felt like a full 5 day work week. UGH. So glad that it is Friday and even more glad that there is an open bottle of really tasty wine just waiting to be poured and enjoyed.
I've been experiencing some technical difficulties with a certain external hard drive that was a gift from my hubby last X-mas. I know, Yes that was a long time ago and Yes it has taken me a really long time to get to it and Yes I do appreciate the man and all he does for me. At the time that he bought me said drive I wasn't quite prepared to use it... meaning the computer was NEW and didn't need any external anything, but now 5000+ photographs and some thousands of songs later, Yes I'm ready. For days now I've been hooking this thing up waiting for it to appear on the hard drive, Yes MACs do that, to no avail. I called tech support... warranty was up. I could hear the loving husband say I told you so....
I was determined to either get this thing to work or get my money back.
Emails went back and forth; they told me to try these 5 things and if tht doesn't work get back to us and return it (if your warranty is in effect). AH! I didn't know what to do. Last chance... try it on the PC. I did.... guess what. It worked and then brought it back to the trusty MAC and you'll never guess what.... it works. My best guess... instead of standing it upright it works best sitting on it's side. YUP, you read me right.
Now I can't seem to figure out how to use it. HELP.
Have a great weekend.

how big is the hard drive? Are you thinking of using it for archiving or backup?
