Do you have you a question about the Hitachi Touro Mobile MX3 500GB Portable Drive?

Q: Is this product comparable with mac os and if so can i use it to back up my mac with airport?
Answer by Website User on 19th September 2014
Yes, you would be able to format this drive so that it will work fine with Mac OS. I'm not too sure on the Airport compatibility though as I don't think you can use a USB hard drive with it. -Danlevan

Q: Can you confirm that the USB connector is in fact a USB 3 Micro-B fitting and not a Mini-B USB 2 fitting as shown in photographs
Answer by Website User on 23rd April 2014
Unfortunately these units are security sealed from the manufacturer and they only list USB 3.0 connectivity on the outside so we are unable to confirm the USB cable type - TL

Q: how do you put movies, tv series ect on to the hard drive?
Answer by Dan@CCL on 22nd January 2014
You'd need to do this with a computer, and this drive will simply appear as another hard drive that you can copy the files to. -Danlevan

Q: My hard disk is not working on xbox 360, when I install the gta v stops unexpectedly, I can do?
Answer by Website User on 28th December 2013
Unfortunately the Xbox 360 cannot use a hard drive like this for file storage, only as an external media drive for films and music and so on. The largest external storage an Xbox 360 can use with the Xbox file structure is 16GB. -Danlevan

Q: Hi will this drive work with a Xbox 360 ?
Answer by Adam on 30th November 2013
As long as the hard drive is formatted under the FAT32 file system, this hard drive would be compatible with the XBOX 360. -AdamL

Q: Hi, if I use it sporadically-say once a month- will it automatically "find" and back only the new files/photos/music etc or do I have to back up everything on my computer every time I use it just to make sure? Many thanks! Lisen
Answer by Dan@CCL on 15th November 2013
If you're using this for backups you can schedule how regular this is performed through the backup software. I don't believe this drive comes with software however, so this would be dependent on the software you use. -Danlevan

Q: How do i format the disk on a Mac
Answer by CCL on 6th March 2013
We can't really assist too much with Mac issues unfortunately as we only really deal with Windows systems, however I have looked it up and you would need to use the Disk Utility, which is located under Applications > Utilities. -Danlevan

Q: I purchased one of these at the weekend from CCL - on the box it says usb 3.0 + Backup Software - What backup software is supposed to be included as I can find any?
Answer by CCL on 7th January 2013
The backup software is located on the drive itself, there is no physical media. Regards, Mike

Answer by CCL on 3rd January 2013

Q: Hi, Can it be left plugged in and running, or does it need to be switched off when not in use? Thanks.
Answer by CCL on 8th December 2012
It can simply be left plugged in - as it is USB powered it will turn itself off when the computer is turned off, and turn itself on when the computer is turned on. -MR

Website User on 9th January 2013
the drive is very compact and quite speedy, but the usb cable is short and the interface is not standard, meaning you can't just swap it for a longer cable. Also the box reports this comes with backup software, which you would expect to find on the unit itself and enable you to use it to backup your computer to it. This is not the case, but instead you are given access to 3GB of cloud storage for free and then must pay $60 a year to obtain 250GB. I think CCL need to put this warning on the page regarding this drive to protect themselves.
