Hi all, Is there any way to force mount an external hard drive? Basically, my 'Seagate Freeagent For Mac' 1TB external is not mounting correctly. It's visable in 'System Profiler' (under Firewire 'unknown device' is listed) but other than that, it's not recognised by my Mac at all. I can hear the drive spinning up and down but it won't power down with my system, like it used to. I've tried changing the FW cable, tried connecting with USB, tried different Mac, tried connect directly to Mac (had to daisychained) and I've tried giving it a good whack (usually works a treat with electrical equipment!). I could send it away for repair but I have sensative data on there that I would like to erase before parting ways. I guess I want to know if I can force mount it and/or erase it before sending it away for repair. Many thanks in advance. KK.
