Can the Samsung 850 EVO be used as an external hard drive
Would like to use the Samsung 850 EVO as an external hard drive. Is it possible and what cables would I need if it would work.
Thank you. The information and the site are a great help!
Is this a good question?
I bought an enclosure, however I cannot get it to pop up in the my computer folder. Do I have to install software/drivers for it? I dont understand how to make it show up in My PC
You need to run Disk Management. Available under "Administrative Tools".

Have you reformatted it using Disk Utility?
I have one in an external case, reformatted to HFS+ (used to be in a PC) and it runs fine.
As to what case (the cable goes to the case) it will work in any case that you can connect to your Mac, so Thunderbolt, Firewire or USB 3, even USB 2 but that would be pointless as it would make a very fast drive run very slow.
