My Western Digital My Passport portable drive is not recognized in OS X. It used to be recognized, but not anymore. It does not appear in /Volumes.

The hard drive is recognized by a Linux machine. I am not sure what happened — any ideas how to fix that?

What happens when you type diskutil mount /dev/disk1s1? – slhck Nov 11 '12 at 18:44
