    Mac doesn’t support two external hard drives when connected together?

    This is bit strange because whenever I try to connect my two external hard drives it just doesn't get detected at all. One of the hard drive will come up occasionally but still it won’t work properly but when I connect both in some different PC it works.

    What the issue with my Mac? Why it is not working properly? Please provide me the needed details.

    Thanks.

    Friend ,there is problem with hardware,so you way that is to repair the system.
    follow the steps:

    =) First move the disk utility.

    =) Then open the hard drive.

    =) Now selects the "Repair Disk"

    =) And then this will repair the minor problem.

    Else

    >> Try Mac-book for restore process to its factory settings.

    >> This will fix the hardware issue.

    Dear Friend..

    Even this is a quite strange problem for me as well because i haven't face such kind of issue earlier before.
    May be there is some hardware recognition problem in your Mac due to which you Mac is not able to recognize the 2nd hard disk.

    Well there is not to worry about this. There is a very simple solution for that.
    Just go to your Disk Utility Center first when you get a hardware and device option.
    From there, you just enter in device are and try to find out your 2nd hard disk.
    Once it is found over there, then Select the hard disk and press OK.

    But if this alternate fails, then you must go with another alternative.
    There is a software called Hard Disk Diagnostic Tool which helps you to recognize the hard disk without any trouble.
    http://hdd-health.en.softonic.com/download

    This software after installation, automatically detect your all the hard disk and USB automatically.
    So don't wait, download, install and find your hidden hard disk.

    Hope I help you this way,
    thank you..
