My external hard drive stopped mounting on my MacBook.  When I ran Time Machine the other night (for the 1st time in a few months) it appeared the usb cable was sensitive to touch ... Meaning it had to be just right to make connection.  But I believe everything was backed up.  The next day when I went to check on it I realized the HD was no longer mounting.  After I did a permissions repair it is now not recognized in Disk Utility (it was prior).  Today I checked my other external HD, which was my 1st backup, and it also does not mount ... Nor does it appear in Disk Utility.  When I hook them both to a PC they are recognized.  Any ideas on what has happened?

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
