I am running 10.4.1off a MacBook. My flash drive was working fine earlier today, but when I tried to put it in tonight, the light on the end kept blinking but the computer sees nothing. It's not that it isn't just showing up on the desktop. I tried to see it through the Disk Utility, but the Disk Utility screen just keeps showing the "Gathering disk information" message, without seeing anything while the drive is in. Please help- I'm a student with a lot of homework on this thing. Thanks for your time.

the fact that it is not working on two machines suggests it may have become faulty. If the lead between machines is a separate one (usb to drive connection) try using another one to make the connection. Leads do not last forever either.
you just mite have no more room on your macbook. if you do then it also could be that the files are protected or cant be read by the system. try to open up the files on your memory stick and copy and past or drag and drop see if that dose any different effect.
This is the solution that worked for me. Luckily I have another external drive of the exact same model that is working fine. I used the power supply from the good working model and plugged it into the bad drive. The bad drive booted right up. Evidently the power supply was the issue, not the drive itself. Even though the bad power supply had enough juice to light up the drive, it was not able to make the drive spin correctly.
it could be this mbox thing isnt compatible with intel chiped macs. did you check their website for minimum requirement and compatibility? any of your friends have the same laptop of yours and theirs is working?
did you google "macbook pro not working mbox 1" for forums that relate to you
The '?' on the monitor is because the computer can't find an operating system. Start up from the OSX disc and run 'Disc Utility' from 'Utilities' on the toolbar. Select the hard drive from the left hand box and run 'First Aid' to attempt repair. If this fails you will need to replace the hard drive and reinstall OSX
Start up from the OSX CD. (Hold down the 'C' key during start up). Run 'Disc Utility' from the 'Utilities' menu. If the hard drive is recognized by 'Disc Utility', select the drive in the left hand column and run 'First Aid' to repair ant problems. If the hard drive is not recognized or 'First Aid' fails to repair the disc, you will need to format the drive or even replace it and re-install OSX.
