I have an IOMEGA HDD external hard drive with ALL my music and photos on it. It will not mount to my iMac. It worked up until about 2 weeks ago. I am running OS X 10.9.4. HELP!!!!!

Oh, and I read some of the other threads in here and:

1. Yes, I have tried a new cable
2. I went into the disk utillity and found it there, but it says it needs to be repaired and that iMac can't repair it so I need to restore the disk. How can I back up a disk that doesn't mount?

Am I missing something?????????

It won't read on my Windows 8 laptop either.

Sounds like it has died. These days always have at least two current backups. You might like to invest in DiskWarrior if the contents are valuable.

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!
