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.

Suddenly, my 500GB Seagate external hard drive couldn't mount on my iMac. It was working fine till yesterday. I connected them to the Mac USD port, and the light in the seagate is blinking... Any

I can only comment generically:

I would try to uninstall the drive on the OS. Then re-start the computer. After the re-start, connect the drive and see if the drive re-installs itself.

If the error persists, then the drive is indicating failure. To absolutely verify if it has failed, take the drive to a store where there are MAC computers and try the drive on one of their computers to see if it works.

A continuous flashing LED on most devices where the LED does not normally continuously flash is an indication of a failure of the device. Some devices will flash an error code when designed to do so, and if possible.

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.

About 6 months ago there were 2 colored vertical lines on my desktop screen. I've been getting more lines every 2 or 3 weeks and now have a total of 18. The nearest Apple store said they can fix it no...

It should not affect the data on the hard drive but with all repairs such as this it always worth making sure you have your hard drive backed up. I had a similar problem with a imac a couple of years ago and the hard drive was fine when it came back. Hope this helps.

I have the same problem with my Aluratek AHDDS100F Sata to usb 2.0 docking unit. It will only work now if I connect it via usb 1.1. I am using a Iomega usb 2.0 pci card.
