I have a Seagate FreeAgent Go drive with the optional docking station. I use it to keep files that I don't access on a regular basis and as a place to do "quick backups" of things like my Paperless library or my Lightroom Catalog. This morning, I saw a message on my desktop (I didn't shut down) that I failed to eject it properly.
Now it will not mount.
If I run
it dosen't show up at all. It's not there. Period.
However, in system profiler, it shows up under the USB, but not under the storage.
Ok. So I thought my drive is dying. If I plug it into another computer, it works perfectly. In fact, I plugged it into a Surface RT of all things and I was able to read and write with no problem. It also works on another Mac (MBP 10.10.3) I go back to my iMac with 10.10.3 and nothing—it's like it dosen't exist.
Here's the kicker: I have another FreeAgent Go drive, exact same model and size as the one that dosen't work, and if I plug it in to the exact same dock, it works.
I have checked my console logs and the only thing that comes up when plug in the failed drive is the error message
USBMSC Identifier (non-unique): 0x00000000 0xbc2 0x2100 0x0, 2
I have removed all USB drives, did a warm reboot, a cold reboot and even a reboot in safe mode: no joy.
Everything I have searched for has something about not being able to boot and the fix is repairing the disk via recovery console. That's not my issue. I can boot just fine. I just can't read this USB HDD.
Anyone else run into this?
