Cant read external Hard disk

I have send an external hard disk to my friend in China containing files shot with my camera. The files are all .mov files and the disk is in MAC OS extended journal format. On my MAC here is works fine but my Chinese friend says his MAC can't detect the disk. Anybody knows whats wrong?

Re: disk

It's either his Mac or the drive that has an issue. Easy to check by using another Mac and another drive (if you know that other drive works with that other Mac and has the same file system).
