Hi, I'm new here I have a lacie 1 TB HDD (USB version) plugged to my MBP. It works wonderfull for... about 4-6 months and suddenly about 2 weeks ago, Mac OS doesn't recognise the HDD properly (i have 2 partitions, FAT32 and Mac extended) it only mount the FAT32 partition and did not mount the Mac extended partition. Tried repairing the partition using disk utility, didn't work. Swapped with another USB cable, no luck. Finally googled and found out that I had to reset the bus in the MBP (turn off, release battery and power for 15 mins). Worked for a couple of times, but not lately. Need help... I don't want to format the HDD if possible since I don't have a spare 1 TB. And I love the idea that I can just plug in the HDD without shutting down and wait for 15 mins to just access my ext hdd. Thanks in advance for the help MBP 3,1 (non unibody), 2.4 GHz C2D, 4GB memory, 160 GB 7200 rpm.
