    One of the internal drives on my mac pro does not show up at all - most likely, it's dead correct? I used it to store all my itunes movies.. (ATV would connect to the mac pro and the files would play from that drive)

    It's a one month old seagate drive, is it normal for it to go bust just for playing media? Can I hook it up to an enclosure and try it out.. disk utility doesn't see the drive. :(

    Luckily I backed up most of it last night.. was going to do the rest tonight.. but ugh, just my luck.

    good luck

    1st thing first, if you've back up most of it and you really do not need the extras that you haven't back up, just arrange for a replacement if the hdd is under warranty (assuming it is spoilt).

    Next to answer your couple of Qs ...
    It's a one month old seagate drive, is it normal for it to go bust just for playing media? Yes.

    Can I hook it up to an enclosure and try it out.. disk utility doesn't see the drive. :( Sure you can and you should.

    Keep us updated.
