    if you need any more info feel free to ask, he tried the 5 R's. He really needs it fixed, without sending it to apple.

    Well, try connecting it to a different machine to see if it has more luck being recognised there. If you connect it to a Mac, see whether Disk Utility recognises it and if so, then erase it and format it as FAT32. :)
