You know one of those times that is so awful, and you know JUST how awful it is the second after you do it, and you just wish wish WISH you had a time machine because you only want to go back 5 seconds and change it. Well, that just happened. I have a new (to me) 2nd hand MacBook, and i've just plugged my Elements HD into it and the guy who sold it to me explained that I could use Time Machine with it (ironic...). So it asked me, and I said yes, and then it said it needed to delete everything off first, to which I went to reply HELL NO - but by some cruel twist of fate I clicked "erase" and then it started deleting and I freaked out and really quickly pulled the chords out of my HD. And now it's telling me it can't read the disc when I put it back in. I've tried the repair disc utility (repair and verify) and i've tried restarting my computer and i've tried it in a PC. Please, my life is over. Anyone talk me off the ledge with miraculous words of wisdom???
