    I have a 1 TB BUFFALO HD-PCTU3 hard drive. I accidentally pulled it without properly ejecting it and now it can't be read. I can only access it in Disk Utility but when I try to erase the data or repair the disk, it keeps on saying 'theres's an error' ANYONE have any ideas on how to fix it? I'm becoming really desperate! if it could help, I own a macbook pro with the ios snow leopard :( :confused::confused::apple:

    Drive failure

    Just so you know, i bought a MiniStation Extreme 1 TB HD-PZ1.0U3B from Buffalo Technology. About two months ago I wen to plug it in and no green light, no nothing. I freaked out since i have so much data for work on it. I restarted computer tried everything. eventually I called them and they said that there was a batch of drives that went out with a bad USB connection and the only thing that could be done was to bring it to a hard drive repair shop. I know this won't help you, but mine just eventually started working again. I was able to back everything up just in case it fails again. I would say call them and see what they say.

    I've had luck fixing misbehaving HDs and USB Flash sticks by formatting them on a PC, then formatting them back on a Mac. Don't ask me why.
