This is probaly file errors on the disk that have generated over time. The problem is that your mac software wont load up the drive unless it is formatted or accessed in DOS. There are some freeware programes which you can download which recover hard drive from DOS (spinrite etc). If you cant access this in DOS with the software then the hard drive is trash.

The main problem of all this is that this is almost symptoms of a hard drive faliure or future faliure. If you get the info off your drive back it up defrag and format the drive every year.

Bear in mind Hard drives only have a lifespan of 1-3 years. In addition try not to fill them over 60% as your drive will last a lot longer.

hope you can rescue your drive.

Macbook pro os x 10.4.11 won't recognize or mount my new Hitachi xl3000


The Hitachi XL3000 is formatted for the PC, but your Mac should recognize it. Try another cable or port. Check in Disk Utility to see if the drive appears. If it does, then you can format it for the Mac. You can do this in Disk Utility by clicking on the hard drive on the left side of the window. Then choose the Partition Tab, and change the Volume Scheme drop-down menu to 1 Partition. Then click on the Option button, choose GUID partition map, and click OK. Then choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled) for the format and click Apply and OK. Your drive should then format for Mac and mount on the desktop. If it does not appear in Disk Utility after changing the cable and port, or trying another computer, then you may need to return it for replacement. I hope this helps.

Is it spinning? If its not, then your hard disk might be dying, but you can still save the data on it. Usually what i do is try to shake it until it starts spinning again. then connect it to your pc again.

Can you hear the drive spinning when you connect it to your computer? A spinning sound means your external drive is being powered by the USB from your computer - there are several reasons the drive is not being recognized.
If you are not hearing any spinning sound the drive could be damaged.
Does the drive get recognized by any another computer? If yes - check disk management and see if security is enabled on the drive. Also - check to see if there is a drive letter assigned to your external hard drive.

Can you hear the drive spinning? If not, then you may want to check the power supply. You can also try different ports and cables, or try it on another computer. Another possibility is that the directory is damaged, and DiskWarrior can often repair the directory and allow the drive to mount.

My Mac OS X doesn't recognize my Maxtor One Touch


Try unplugging both the power and data cables from both the computer and the hard drive. Let the hard drive spin down. Plug the cables back in. It should become visible with no loss of files.
