    I have been using Sony 16GB USB Hard Drive for 2 years...recently, one of my friend accidentally forget to ejected it from an PC... Therefore when I plug-in to my Mac Pro... it's undetectable at the Finder. Then, when I use Disk Utility, I'm able to detect it...but here come the problem...I can't repair it or verify it ..here's what it shown on my screen...

    It's unformatted, possibly meaning the partition table is corrupt.

    To repair that, you can use Gparted Live CD.
