Hello, I am sorry to hear that you also get this external hard disk RAW file system error. Honestly, last time, after attaching my external hard disk to a PC, I do find my external hard disk has RAW file system and cannot be accessed, too. In order to rescue my left drive files and movies, I do tried many portable hard disk RAW error recovery methods and finally have recovered most of my original drive files back at the aid of external hard disk RAW file system recovery software.
Hence, you'd better also read more related data recovery articles and get clues here:

Hope these words work for you.

If you don't want to waste your money on this unsure thing, you could try some free drive data recovery applications at first:
Note: You'd better not save anything else on this RAW drive in case of data loss.
2). To save this drive, you could try to format it into NTFS or FAT32.
RAW file system often cannot be read/write under both of Windows and Mac OS. That's why one is always asked to format it into NTFS or FAT32 file system. (These file system could be easily read/write under Windows OS.)
Note: If this formatting process also could not save this drive, you have to replace it.
