    I have a friend whose external hard drive (formatted for Mac) isn't being recognized whenever he plugs it in.
    OS X asks him to initialize it or eject it.

    Is there a way to "fix" this drive without initializing it?

    It could be that the drive requires a firmware upgrade. Visit the manufacturer's website and check.
