Re: hard drive not mounting on mac

Is the drive formatted NTFS? That will never mount on a mac, but can be seen in the Disk Utility.

Clicking noise, won't mount

the controller on the external drive could have gone bad. i would first try removing the hard drive from that external enclosure and use a usb or esata dock and see if itll mount.

HI There, I'm in a bit of a panic because I haven't listened to that nagging voice inside lately saying to back up my external hard drive and today for the first time it is suddenly not being recognized...

If it reads fine on your PC then I would suggest to back up all the files from it before you do anything else. Once you've done that, you can right click and run a check disk on the drive see if it fixes any errors. If it does, then that may be the reason why it didn't work on the Mac, if it doesn't then you can try formatting the hard drive on the PC and then it will be like brand new.

first you need to take the hard drive out and attach it to another working computer, than try to use a data recovery software like SpinRite.

I had the same issue -- turned out that power supply was going bad so the drive wouldn't spin up all the way; this could explain the strange noises you're hearing. I put in a support ticket with LaCie at their website and they sent me a new power supply at no charge (I was within the warranty period, I think).

My Book firewire not bootable on mac

I picked up a couple of My Books lately( via Ebay), and noticed that i can not get them to work on the Firewire interface with my Dual Core Intel Mac. Shows up on USB2.0 fine however.I found an online reference that said Apple changed some things on the Firewire interface year or two ago, and that vendors had to update their firmware (it related to Firewire devices reporting a unique ID to the Mac).
