I have two 3TB Goflex desktop USB 3.0 drives. I recently bought a thunderbolt desktop adapter and assumed I could swap the drives from the USB adapter to the thunderbolt. - no luck. It appears that the drive needs to be formatted with the appropriate adapter. I am using a MacMini i5 and 10.7.4 OSX. If the drive is formatted on the thunderbolt device - it can only be used with that device. Same applies with the USB3.
What am I doing wrong.
