    Default Unable to mount MyBook Studio

    I have a WD Mybook Studio Drive, I am unable to mount the drive,
    I have gone into disk utility and am unable to repair the HFS. I wanted to know if there were any free solutions out there to repair/recover the data. I have downloaded some data recovery software and it can see and read the drive but is $129 to repair it. I was hoping there are alternate solutions available.

    Any help would be great. thanks

    The MyBook Studio should have come with a firewire and USB cables. Try turning off your mybook (unplugging it), plugging the opposite interface in, then plugging in the studio. I have had problems with this before and that always works.

    Well depends. If you dropped it, (i.e. physical damage) or a hardware problem, there is very little you can do

    I've got a similar problem. WD 1TB MyBook Studio drive. It worked fine for 8 months on FireWire; 2 partitions: 1 for time machine backup and 1 for video scratch.

    I migrated the data from my iMac to a brandnew MacBook Pro but afterwards the external HD wouldn't mount on either computer.

    HD utility does recognize the drive but doesn't recognize two partitions and wouldn't activate the drive. Repair status is allegedly OK. When connected, the drive is busy even when not accessed.

    Disconnecting and rebooting doesn't help, even with alt+cmd+p+r. Switching to USB doesn't work either.

    I'm not fond of the idea of reformatting and repartitioning because I would loose all my video projects on it.

    Any ideas?


    Thanks,
    Peter

    Default Re:

    I would like to suggest using an efficient recovery tool like Stellar Phoenix Mac File Recovery software which is a Powerful and user-friendly Mac Recovery application that provides complete recovery of lost, deleted or corrupted data including documents, music, videos, pictures, e-mails and PDFs.The read-only Data Recovery Mac software is built with highly graphical user-interface that makes it self-explanatory without any prior technical understanding.The software is not a freeware you need to pay $99 but the recovery is 100% gurrantee....Give a try
