Thanks for the help!
Basically I need to get the drive formatted and put back in?
I have a mate who has PCs he would be able to format it for me but it would be pc version. Would this work?
Rather than having to buy an enclosure?
Is there any other way to get disk utility to recognise the disk?
Thanks again, Erin
Bottom line here is that you need to find a way to connect your drive to your Mac. The enclosure is the way to go because it will have the type of connectors that you will need to connect to your computer. I don't know any way around this.
Maybe a repair shop would let you use one of their old devices for a modest fee. This will be a one time operation. Maybe they would do it for you as well for not much more.
The drive must be configured in Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and I doubt that any PC would have this option. Disk Utility is the best option for this.
