SOURCE: Hi, My Buffalo portable HDD Model

I feel for you. Since you said it was a backup I would highly recommend getting another hard drive and backing up your data from the original machine before you lose it all, then work on recovering the existing one.

When the power went out it probably wrote garbage to the MBR and possibly other areas. If the data is as important as you say, I would contact a professional, one mistook could make the data unrecoverable.

I would suggest Electronic Restoration Services (http://ers-us.com) at 1-888-355-001) or any other realiable service.

You can always try rewriting the MBR with one of the many utilities available but be sure you know what you are doing. Only you know the value of the data on the drive.

Good Luck,
Gil Shultz

Does not read on the mac


If the USB hard drive was formatted in NTFS on a PC then the MAC cannot read this hard drive.
If you format this hard drive on a PC in FAT32 file format then the MAC can exchange data between the MAC and the PC.
The MAC can read and write PC data to this hard drive.

Apparently i need to reboot my BUFFALO & MINISTATION LITE HD-PE500U2/WH 500 GB, how do i do this?


Apparently -- if you don't know how to reboot -- you should perhaps ask some computer wizard among your friends for advice.

You don't reboot a hard drive (or any other device), you reboot THE COMPUTER. Which means you shut it down and restart it. During the startup process (which is synonymous to "booting") the computer checks all its internal interfaces and external sockets, takes an inventory of all devices and checks if they work properly.
