My partner was previously using his My Book Studio II as a backup device with this MACBOOK PRO and an update must of occured on the machine…now this is what he is experiencing:
MACBOOK PRO OS 10.7 (LION)
- When the drive is plugged into the MAC, the light flashes slowly, no drive letter appears and is not displayed in disk utility.
I then tried this on another mac os
MACBOOK 10.6 (SNOW LEOPARD)
- When the drive is plugged into the MAC, the light flashes slowly, no drive letter appears and disk utility sees the device > ran a verify > cannot be verified will need to be repaired > ran a repair > cannot be repaired.
Have changed USB cables and tried Firewire too…
Can anyone help at all?
Trying to avoid a format as there is quite a fair bit of data on there…
Thank you in advance
