    I have a 10 year old mac pro with a total of 4 drives.
    1-150G start up
    1-250G for general storage
    and 2 500g arranged in a Raid 0 stripped? ( I believe that how its set up)

    Yesterday I was working with FCP and it started acting strange. Lots of spinning balls and then it finally started crashing.
    I restarted and now when it boots up it doesnt see the two drives in the Raid0.
    I get the message

    "This computer cannot read the drive you have inserted"
    with three options

    Ignore, Initialized and eject.

    When I hit Initialize the Disk Utility pops up. It sees the two drives but if I try to verify or repair permissions on the Raid it will start the verification and then stops and reads

    Cannot verify content of drive

    it gives me the same message if I try to repair the drives

    So, it seems to see the drives there but I no longer get the icon for the drives and I can see any of the content

    Help ?

    It's probably time to replace those 10 year old disk drives! :eek:

    Is your RAID-0 for storage, or temporary fast workspace?

    Stick in a couple of modern drives, rebuild your RAID-0 array, and reload the contents from your backup if necessary ... and you are back in business!
