Im really sorry to be asking this again, i have seen the question asked before. But maybe my situation is lil different? Maybe, maybe not. So about 2 weeks ago my CD drive wasn't working right. Then my external harddrive (I've had it for a year) all the sudden wasn't recognized. I know you cant ask permission to fix it (or something like that) when I go to repair it. I wouldn't be freaking out so bad if it didnt have my whole life on it. My mac gave me another problem awhile back saying the memory was full, thats the only reason i got it. When I looked at the disk utility to fix it, its there, it comes up as 2 TB WD media. The info it gives me as follows. Disk descrip: WD MEDIA Connection bus: USB Connection type: External SMART status: Not supported Partition scheme: Unformatted Write status: Read/Write Version: Mac OS X 10.5.8 HD version: Western Digital My book 1TB Mac edition USB 2.0 external HD Any ideas if i could save my information on the comp?
