Hello folks! My problem started last week when a GENIOUS (yes, me ) moved an iMac with an external drive Western Digital Mybook for Mac attached while Final Cut Pro was read/writing on this device. The usb cable was disconnected, I immediately re connected it and there was when the problem started. The drive icon disapeared from desktop. I restarted the computer and the unlocker requested the password so I thought nothing happened! YEAH!... but right after I enter the pass and hit return the drive gets unlocked and an error message pops saying that the drive needs to be initialized, ignore the error or eject the drive. I tried connecting the drive to a windows 7 pc and same thing, I can unlock the drive but seems impossible to read the information. So I need your advice, I prefer not to initialize/format the drive since I have a few raw videos that I still need, and before using recovering tools I wanted to know if anyone had a similar situation before. Every comment will be much appreciated! the exact drive model is: Western Digital My Book for Mac 1tb P/N WDBEKS0020HBK-01 It is connected to an iMac I guess is 2009/2010 and not sure the OSX version but probably Snow Leopard. I also have a late 2010 MacBook Pro with Mountain Lion to try if needed. Thank you very much in advance!
