    Hi

    I have a 5 gig seagate microdrive that I formatted last week. The problem is I don't know which format I formatted it in. Anyhow, the drive now can't be recognized by my MBP. Every time I plug it in through my USB card reader, I hear it spin up but then it stops after a couple of clicks and it never shows up mounted.

    I honestly have no clue how to fix it, since I'm pretty sure it's not the hardware that's broken. Maybe one of you had the same problem/knows how to fix this?

    Thanks alot in advance!

    When you open Disk Utility, does it (microdrive) show on the left side?

    Do you have access to a PC, or Windows via Parallels or Bootcamp?
