I have an external Seagate hard drive that is recognised and works on Windows computers but not on my MacBook Air which I am currently using. I have looked at a lot of tutorials regarding this, and I have edited my preferences so that external disks are to be displayed on the desktop and on the sidebar.
My hard drive is not mounted on Disk Utility, but my Mac has detected and recognized its hardware information in System Information:
I have also tried resetting my Mac's NVRAM but my hard drive doesn't get recognised and I can only see its information in System Information.
I am trying to resolve this issue using Terminal. I have typed in
diskutil list on the command line, resulting in the below:
My hard drive is disk2, and I then typed
diskutil info disk2, to see if the system recognises the drive, as if it does it should reveal information about the drive:
I am trying to eject the drive using
diskutil eject disk2, because after ejecting the drive, if I type the
diskutil list command and the drive is gone from the list, I can remove it from the USB port and reconnect it and it should mount normally.
However when I type
diskutil eject disk2, I get the following:
I am not sure why this is occurring or how to resolve this issue. Any insights are appreciated.
