I'm new here so I apologize if this is in the wrong section. I have a MacBook Pro, running OS X 10.7.2. And my external hard drive is a WD passport that is 1TB. It's been working fine but today I accidentally unplugged it without ejecting it and ever since then it won't seem to work. I get a "NTFS - 3G" error. When I enter Disk Utility it shows my HDD, but I can't Verify it or Repair it. Here is the error message: NTFS - 3G NTFS-3G could not mount /dev/disk1 at /Volumes/Untitled because the following problem occurred: Error reading bootsector: Input/output error Failed to mount '/dev/rdisk1': Input/output error NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for more details. Any ideas on what's up?
