Title:

WD MyPassport external hard drive won't mount to my MacBook Pro

Text:

When I plug my external hard drive into my MacBook it flashes its white light and begins to stay solid, but doesn't show up on my desktop.  I opened up disk utility and it said it was not mounted.  I tried to repair the disk, but I got an error: File system verify or repair failed.  Is there anything I can do?

Device:

MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Late 2008 and Early 2009

Status:
