Hi there, I'm totally desperate after having googled for a week to no avail. My external hard drive suddenly stopped showing up on my mac book pro. I have checked in disk utility and it's not showing up there either. The cable doesn't seem faulty as the blue power light appears as soon as I connect it to my laptop. I'm now trying to see if anything can be done from my partner's PC but the hard drive doesn't show on the disk management. Which steps should I take in order to try and restore/format it before I splurge on a new one. Rage buy Thank you so much in advance. And PS. I have read this thread http://www.techspot.com/community/t...rive-not-showing-up-on-my-macbook-pro.172059/ but this person's hard drive did show up on disk utility so it's somewhat different, although I hope the ending will be just as happy!
