I desperately need help, with a capital H. I have a My Book Studio 2 (2 Terabyte external). It used to work fine for a couple of months on my Macbook but now for some strange reason, it’s not showing / getting recognized by my Mac at all…via Firewire 400.
When connected, Disk Utility doesnt show the drive, I tried changing the adapter thinking the original one may be faulty, I’ve tried updating the firmware via USB (but that does not happen because it cant verify). Nothing is working.
The Drive does get powered up but and the harddisks are producing a very low audible hmm sound, but i’ve noticed that the centre light just goes up and then it becomes normal, it doesnt read the way it used to, back then the light would go up and down two times and then disk would be mounted.
Need urgent help !!! Thank you.
