You need to use Disk Utility and format it as HFS+. FAT doesn't support files larger that 4GB (I think). Go to Disk Utility and select the drive. Then erase it and select the format as Mac OS Extended (Journaled). You can name it whatever you'd like.

I set up a MacBook Air 2013 from scratch and tried to install Kali Linux 2.0. The install was successful, the big problem is the Broadcom wireless card though. But that's probably a second question. Here is what I did: First I made a fresh install of El Capitan 10.11.1 after repartitioning the internal drive to 1 partition with a GUID partition table. ...
If your adapter wasn't specifically advertised as Mac-compatible, then its unlikely to work. There are a couple of 3rd party brands that positively will work but I wouldn't trust just any off brand adapter and if its a PC manufacturer brand, then it definitely won't have the internal circuitry that a Mac-compatible adapter will have so the answer, ...
I'm pretty sure Snow Leopard does not provide native support for USB 3.0. This is probably the main cause of your issue. You would need to make sure you have installed the proper drivers for your PCI card in order for the kernel to recognize and allow this new functionality.

Check device manager to see if the iphone is listed, or if you have anything with a question or exclamation mark.

You have a hardware problem with your USB ports and it's physical. It try to disable de USB ports but they can't so they throw this error. It's hardware related, you can do nothing about.

To get the build version of the OS installed by the OS X installer.app enter in Terminal.app: cat /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ ...
I found a fix for my keyboard (Kogan TenKeyless with Cherry MX Browns). I tried USB Overdrive, which worked straight away without having to configure anything further. There's a shareware version available which nags every time you start it, but if it makes my keyboard work again, I'm happy! http://usboverdrive.com/
Some OS software from another internet source other than Apple is not entirely reliable unless they are a certified Apple seller. In order to get back to the OS you want you can do a few things. Delete the HDD from disk utility and recover it from Internet Recovery. This should bring you to download El Capitan, after that you want to go to the app store and ...
Apple's createinstallmedia tool will avoid the "download additional components" failure in almost all cases. See How do I make a bootable USB flash drive a Mac? for a step by step guide and discussion on how to accomplish that. The next real question is if your hardware supports Internet Recovery or if your recovery HD is still operational. Disconnect all ...
