Recently got a Mac and I've had to reformat all my hard drives from NTFS. After trying one I got an error message saying 'Mediakit reports not enough space'. So i went onto my old windows laptop and managed to reformat it to exFAT, but after doing that it now doesn't mount on my Mac and is also not recognized on my windows laptop anymore....

First off you didn't need to format your NTFS drives. OSX reads them fine and with a couple commands you'll be able to turn on writes.


It could be the GPT partition table is corrupt. You could try booting into recovery console, command+r after boot chimes, with the drive attached and format it there. If that doesn't work try diskutil in terminal to zero the drive and reformat.
