    Hi -

    I ordered what a number of people have said works well:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B011M8YACM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I have a MacBook that's a bit older maybe 4 years or so. I am running MacOs Catalina. When I plugged in the Kingston, the SSD does not show up on the desktop and I get a message that says the the disk is not readable.

    I tried it another Mac and got the same message. It shows up when I open Disk Utility as SABRENT media.

    Can somebody help me format this SSD to make it work? I am new to this so I need as simple an explanation on how to set this up for Sentry / TeslaCam.

    Thanks.

    Mark

    When in Disk Utility, select the disk. Do you then have an option to Format/Partition or do any other actions?
    If so, you want to Partition/Format it as Fat32

    The only options I have to click is First Aid, Erase or Restore.

    I figured out how to set it up...it needed to be erased and set up as Mac Os FAT.
