Question about Computers & Internet
My 500g external Digital Research hard drive is blinking and can not be recognised How can I access it.
I held the button for like twenty seconds, let go so it would turn off. Waited another 10 - 20 seconds or so and powered it on again and waited 5 minutes then opened up Disk Utility (I'm running on Mac OS X Tiger) and it showed up again. It's a weird drive.
