Im not sure this is the right place to post, but im new here and i need my problem to be fixed as soon as possible.
My external HD fell this morning and since then my mac wont recognize it (it worked perfectly last night). When i plug it to my mac this message comes out “The Disk you inserted was not readable by this computer”. I thought it might have been some kind of error of my computer so i tried it on my sister’s mac. It gave me the same message. I clicked on initialize and tried repairing the disk. Still didnt work, so i went to my mom’s PC and it recognized the HD but it wouldnt read it so i couldnt see the “my passport” icon.
Im using a mac OS X version 10.5.8 and this is what appears on disk utility about the HD
