Not knowing the "gadget" to which you refer... I would normally say plug the "disk" directly into a slot on your Macbook (if it has the required slot etc.) or use a usb adapter; which accepts accepts sandisks. It will show up on the desktop, and also be in the list of devices in the left column of Finder.

Depending on the age of the Macbook it may or may not see larger size sandisks directly with its own slot; but via an adapter it will (or ought to) see any size...

Radio Shack sell such adapters; and they're readily available at most computer stores; eBay, Amazon etc.. Amazon are often a good source as one can also read reviews of them there...?

There is a range of software out there that allegedly will recover deleted files from sandisks etc. Haven't tried any of it so can't speak from personal experience...

This is but one of many:

and this is a list of many more...

✔ Best Answer
Jut looked up your "gadget" and it clearly plugs into a usb port. Some sites say there are no Mac drivers for it; some sites (a review on Amazon included) say it will work without them (at least on an iMac): see this Amazon review -

This older Apple forum discussion says it's windows only - no Mac drivers....

This version of the manual seems to say there is drivers CD with it (includes mac drivers):

It also seems to be OK with or without Mac drivers for some earlier version of Mac OS; but not the latest...?

And "finally" (as per Walter Kronkite - days of yore...) there's this info - which may be the answer...
