Hi, I have an external Fantom 120gb USB drive that doesn't mount on my macbook (intel chip) anymore. I have all my music and pics on the drive!

Any ideas? It used to work fine but now, while Disk Utility sees it, it won't mount.

Furthermore, Diskutility gives me an error when I verfify the volume and the after i repair it, it still does not mount.

What's the deal here? All I need to do is to access the drive long enough to get my data out. Please help!
QUOTE Thanks

Here is a utility you can try, while not free, it seems to be almost universally accepted as the best for the Mac at what it does.

Disk Warrior - and a review

Another to use in conjunction with it is -
TechTool Pro - User reviews - read macusersince85 reviews
A lighter version of this one is included with AppleCare - so would believe it is pretty good at what it does.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
