    Not reading external HD
    I have been using this HD as my back-up. My other HD's can be read and this one does show that it is being powered. Any tips?

    What kind of HD is it and how long have you had it?

    Have you tried it on another computer?

    Mean does show or does not show in Disk Utility?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
