About 3 years ago my husband dropped my connected Western Digital external hard drive from the desk and now it will not connect to the computer. I plug it in and I get an error message
The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer. Initialize... Ignore Eject
Is it possible that the hard drive is not compatible with a Mac? I used the hard drive with my old and now broken HP.
I plugged it into a Windows computer. The computer knows that there is hardware attached but I cannot access the information held on it. Is it hopeless?
