    External HD Won't Mount
    I've been using this external HD for months and now in the last hour it won't mount. I had it mounted earlier today but when I restarted it won't mount. I've tried unplugging it, restarting the computer. I really need the files on this HD.

    If you have access to another computer - even a Windows machine - try attaching it and see if it will mount. Also try using another USB port. It's possible the drive may have failed but try everything else first. If you still have problems, post back and we can recommend software to extract your data from the drive.
