Yes, the "FIX-IT" 1-TB HD is not recognized by "DISK UTILITY". Since you can't format a drive that can't be seen by "DiSK UTILITY" it isn't possible to"WIPE-IT".
I tried hooking drive up to another MAC(Laptop) it also could not see the drive.
My question remains, "Can this drive be revived?". Though it will only
cost $99.00 to buy another drive, and fix this problem, I'd like to avoid that, of
