HI all,

 

I have had this Hard Drive for a few years now, worked great, no issues at all. Even after upgrading to 10.8 it continued to work.

 

A few days ago my cleaning lady moved the computer and disconected the Lacie drive (connected via Firewire) and since then I am not able to mount it again.

 

I see it on my Disk Utility but when I press "mount" I get an error messege "the disc can not be mounted, try First aid" but non of the buttons on First Aid work.

 

So far I tried re-settign the SMC, of course shutting down and starting back up numerus times but nothing.

 

I even tried working through Terminal, it can see the drive and its partition and when I looked online I saw a few commends to try and mount it, but nothing worked so far.

 

Here is what i wrote and got in terminal:

 

Amit-Shamiss-iMac-2:~ Amitshamis$ diskutil list

Details on my system:
