I have an additional internal hard drive that I installed myself about 2.5 years ago. I had it partitioned into 2 parts. It has been working fine until a few days ago. I'm not sure what exactly happened but I think I may have accidently thrown the hard drive in the trash and deleted it. Now I can't find the hard drive on my desk top or in the finder. The only place it shows up is in disk utility. However when I select this hard drive everything is greyed out. I mean everything. I can't verify disk, repair disk, erase, partition, etc. I also tried running disk utility form the install CD and same thing. It recognizes the hard drive but every option is greyed out. Here's a copy of the information from the information tab in disk utlity for the hard drive in question: Name : WDC WD5001ABYS-01YNA0 Type : Disk Partition Map Scheme : Unformatted Disk Identifier : disk1 Media Name : WDC WD5001ABYS-01YNA0 WDC WD5001ABYS-01YNA0 Media Type : Generic Connection Bus : Serial ATA Connection ID : Device 0, "B (lower)" Device Tree : sata/k2-sata@1/@0:0 Bay : "B (lower)" Writable : Yes Ejectable : No Mac OS 9 Drivers Installed : No Location : Internal Total Capacity : 0 Bytes S.M.A.R.T. Status : Not Supported Disk Number : 1 Partition Number : 0 My next thought is to try unplugging the hard drive and replugging it in and see if that does anything. I'm not worried about recoving data. I'm positive I lost the data but I'm not worried because the data was backed-up on an external hardrive. Any ideas or suggestions?
