I've been using my 2.5" 1TB external GoFlex HD on my Mac and it has been running pretty fine until last week when it stopped mounting out of the blue.
BTW It is NTFS-formatted because from time to time I freelance on companies where there's Windows and I can't have it Mac-formatted. The thing is that I can hear the noise it usually makes but it seems not enough power goes through or something power-related just stopped working.
I tried almost everything there is, Mac won't list it with
diskutil list on terminal. I even read this thread the exact same problem as mine. Here's the System Profiler and Console Log when I plug the HD in
Product ID: 0x5021 Vendor ID: 0x0bc2 (Seagate LLC) Version: 1.48 Serial Number: NA0CC59W Speed: Up to 480 Mb/sec Manufacturer: Seagate Location ID: 0x14700000 / 15 Current Available (mA): 1000 Current Required (mA): 100 Extra Operating Current (mA): 0 6/6/17 11:47:45.000 kernel: USBMSC Identifier (non-unique): 0x00000000 0xbc2 0x5021 0x148, 2
I basically found a thread with the exact same problem:
But one of the answers refers to stop the "fsck_hfs" process on the Activity Monitor, but there's no such process on mine maybe because it's not HFS.
Any ideas before shave all my head in dispair?
