    Angry External hard drive not being recognized
    Hey everyone......

    I have an external hard drive that I use for backing up my Macbook hard drive using "carbon copy cloner". Every so often I run a complete system copy just in case my hard drive crashes (AGAIN). The last time I connected the external hard drive, it wasn't recognized. I don't know where to begin and figure out the problem. Up to now, it's been working great.

    I've tried unplugging it, turning it off and on etc.......

    Any suggestions?
