Help... wd my studio edition not recognized by lion!

Good Evening, I’m using a friend’s My Book Studio for editing a video project. My Macbook Pro 15" 2 GHz Intel Core i7, running Lion, can’t see the drive. I’ve installed the latest drive manager and it hasn’t fixed the problem. I believe it’s only workable if I have a My Book Studio 2? Can anyone suggest how I might get the older drive (My Book Studio 1) working on my newer machine.

Thanks for your help!


Did you check if the drive is on disk utility? What if you change connections (USB/Firewire) or check if there’s a firmware update on WD’s site?
