I'm building a 4 drive external SATA RAID enclosure for a MAC. I noticed that the descriptions for drives on vendor sites say that drives are great for PC's. Just wondering if hard drives in general work for MACs too???
See description....

G'Day Blade Jones,

I've been scouting around for you, but unfortunately haven't been able to find a direct answer to your question.

One suggestion that I can offer is that you contact Apple Corporation directly by telephone and ask them if SATA drives are capable of being used with their Mac™ machines.

Alternatively, you could ask the Mac™ experts in this forum here......

Drives are drives. May require adapters, depending on what's in your machine. Just an example: seagate_mac_sata_install. Mac forum guys could give specific advice though
