Hi everyone. I am a newbie here and desperately need help with my ailing external hard drive (firewire).
The problem is it won't mount to my Mac G4 desktop. I am running OS 10.3.
I have tried hooking this up to another computer - no luck.
I have tried a new firewire cable.
When I open disk utilities the LaCie is recognized.
When I run Disk First Aid it tells me the drive is damaged.
I have contacted Drive Savers, as recommended by the LaCie web site. They sent me a quote of about $2000 to recover the data.
The hard drive does not make any strange noises.
Does anyone have any suggestions??? I do not have $2000 to spend recovering the data. I am hesitant to run Norton since Drive Savers says this may damage the disk further.
Help! Any ideas are much appreciated!
