    After connecting your external hard drive via USB, firewire, thunderbolt or whatever, it should appear in the sidebar of Finder and also on your desktop if you have not changed the desktop settings. Then you can access the hard disk and copy/paste the files to your mac.

    If the hard disk does not show up in FInder, there is a problem with the hard disk or your mac port or the hard disk's cable, etc.
