A power failure removed my Lacie 500GB hard drive from my MacBook Pro running Leopard. When I reconnected it the hard disk wouldn't mount. Using Disk Utility I was able to see the disk, it says its not a mac formatted disk, but a pc-formatted disk and won't mount it or repair it (I have never connected it to a pc and it very definitely was mac-formatted before--I hadn't partitioned it or anything but used it straight out of the box). I had a friend come over with his PC laptop and it mounted there with all the files seemingly intact--we opened some of them and everything you're not supposed to be able to do this without the appropriate application! I've no idea what happened. Any way I can get those files back for my mac to read without reformatting the disk and losing what still is there. PLEASE HELP. There's 300GB of files in there.
