Hello all,

I took a few of the hard drives from my Mac Pro on a business trip. I had lots of data that I could've needed at the drop of a hat so short of shipping the tower, I took the drives along. After returning (not actually needing the drives) and plugging them back into my tower one of the drives doesn't show up on the desktop or disk utility.

I realize that the drive could've been damaged in transfer but since it doesn't show anywhere I have no idea how to troubleshoot it.

Any ideas on figuring this one out?
QUOTE Thanks

The first step of troubleshooting most electronics is "Is everything plugged in properly?"
Check your connections, etc. and make sure that HDD is actually connected.

The drive doesn't show up in Data Rescue. That can't be a good sign.
