Ok , I have a Western Digital Passport portable hard drive. I had it connected to my MacbookPro laptop when my comp froze so i held the power button and did a hard restart. Ever since then my Mac cannot detect this hardrive and it wont mount on my desktop. It also doesn't show up in disc utility. When I go to check Disc Utility for the hardrive it gets stuck on Gathering Disc Information until I unplug the hardrive. When I look at the HD I can see the lights flashing like its loading something and it does this endlessly and nothing ever happens. I have tried this hardrive on another comp and it works perfectly so I think some setting or something messed up when I restarted the comp. Any help would be great. (oh i also tested a 4gig usb stick on the same usb port and it worked so its not a port problem either). I really need to be able to use this h/d on my mac again - plz help!
