Mac: Western Digital 400gb external hardrive corrupted

#1 Post by bellefontaine » 09 Sep 2012, 22:45

Hello everyone,
I'm so new to using terminal in mac. So please be patient with me. Thank you.

I have been using this WD external drive, but today it just can't be open. In TestDisk, it says the partition is FAT32 LBA backup driv. I don't really know how to navigate in terminal. And from Disk Utility, the WD disk is available but the Verfity and Repair Disk buttons are greyed out.

I really need help at this. Please help me. :(

Use the arrow keys to navigate.
Can you post some screenshots of TestDisk diagnostics ?
