sorry delay. Disk utility window, left, shows Macintosh HD and Macintosh HD 2 only
Clicked on HD 2. Do not get a Repair Disk option. HD 2 actually is set up to retain some files which don't work in Lion. It shows on desktop. I used to also see an icon for the Maxtor. Then it disappeared.
-The drive has not been moved from original position
-not connected elsewhere
-tried other USB
-restarted with shift down, no Maxtor icon
none of this has fixed it
re icon, yes on the desktop. It appeared in the past, but disappeared a year ago.
searched 'maxtor' in finder and 'seaarch this mac'. Nothing.
yes, I gave up on it, but just decided to try the Maxtor help.
no, have left it where it was, connected to just one Mac, sort of hoped it might appear again as before. It never did
yes, I have a macbook
Did that, after shutting down. Maxtor does not appear-searching for it in Find, nothing.
Seems like te Maxtor is not transmitting. Maybe it died.
Nothing that important. This Maxtor just wasn't reliable.
Thanks for trying.
