I contacted Hitachi support, no solution. They say we should return and exchange the disk with a new model that supports Windows 8.
Very very fustrating.

My hitachi touro desk dx3 2tb hard drive use to work fine on my mac then i plugged it in to a windows 8 pc, since then the hard drive will only work on the windows8 and not my macbook, how can i fix t

Thanks for asking your question on Fixya. ;-)
What error messages are you seeing, if any? Does Apple OS recognize it at all? Also, did you format the drive on a windows computer? How about deleting the partition and plug it back into the macbook so the macbook can set it up for you. If you plug it into the windows machine, what messages did you get from that?

Hitachi touro desk dx3 1tb drops signal from computer continuously

USB ports were brought about in an attempt to standardize how we plug devices into a computer. Computer mice, keyboards, digital cameras, and many other electronic devices now utilize an USB port connection. A port that is not functioning as expected can be mission critical, or an infuriating annoyance at the least. A port that continuously turns off and on may not be broken, this maybe a "Power Management" feature of the device. USB ports can hibernate just as a computer or laptop do. If it's dozing off is not in your best interest, you can disable this feature.

Open "Start Menu", select "Settings", then menu item "Control Panel." In "Control Panel" window click open the "System" icon. When the "System Properties" box opens, select the "Hardware" tab, then click the "Device Manager" button. When "Device Manager" opens, click the at "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" to expand it. Right-click the first "USB Root Hub" item and select "Properties" from the menu. Select the "Power Management" tab. Clear the checkmark from Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power. Click "OK." Repeat these steps for all the "USB Root Hubs."

My usb touro external hard disk won't turn on/ be detected. its so new. its really frustrating

You need to be sure that it is plugged into a USB 2.0 slot. Sometimes USB 2.0 devices will not be detected in USB 1.0 or 1.1, or on low powered USB slots. The back of your computer is the most likely location for a USB 2.0 and is likely indicated.
