yet another problem with my wd drive. if it wasn't for this being a gift from my wife I would drop kick it out the window. last night I decided for once to shut my computer off for the night. I woke up and booted up after I made some coffee. it started up normal till it got to the progress bar part of the startup. at this point everything was going really slow and about 3 min later it finally was done booting. I started up firefox and my system froze. I figured it would be the same old problem where all I have to do to solve it is unplug its data and power then startup without it connected then shut down again and startup once more. this usually solves it but this time no. I even tried going from cable select to master/slave settings since its on the cable with another drive. finally I got techtool pro 4 to see the drive and repair the volume structure but it still won't mount when I startup. what would happen that would let a system see and fix a drive but not mount it. both ttp4 and disk util. mount option won't work. if it wasn't for my other drive also having an os on it my computer would be useless right now. there is so much stuff on the wd drive that I can't afford to lose. any feedback would be great.
