    Sounds like your external may be at issue here. I was able to pull my HDD from my PC and pop it in the enclosure an pull my pics, vids and music from it before I had to reformat it. I am assuming this is what your doing. You didn't mention what type of enclosure you were using.

    i called best buy and used the mac specialist there and she pointed me to the rocket fish brand.. now when i open it (the case) it has a wire with red yellow black and 2 other colors i think thats just power . there's also a wire a lot wider, more like ribbon i think that needs to be pluged in but no where to plug it
