I was copying files to my external hard drive (firewire) and finder froze and relaunched. I got the generic error saying that my "device was ejected improperly". Now when I try plugging in my hard drive my Macbook Pro (2008) it won't recognize it. I've tried: 1. Using USB instead of Firewire 2. Checking Disk Utility 3. Checking System Profiler 4. Resetting PRAM 5. Resetting SMC 6. Using Data Rescue 3 Nothing seems to detect my hard drive. Any ideas or suggestions?
