Soluzione Prescelta

What type of connection are you working from FireWire or USB? Try a different cable. If the USB drive has two connections make sure both are connected.

If you have a self powered (via the FW or USB connection) try connecting an external power supply.

As disk drives age they often need a little more power. When running these externals on the older MacBook or MacBook Pro's the current limits of the USB ports can cause the drive to react like this.

Amy, try repairing the drive with Disk Utilities.
