My MacBook Pro, less than a year old, started acting weird. I backed everything up, took it in to Best Buy, who sent it out to Apple Repair and they put in a new motherboard.

 

It's running on Mac OS X Version 10.7.4

 

Now I am trying to put everything back on the computer from my external Maxtor 80GB Hard Drive. MacBook Pro won't recognize the external drive.

 

I tried Disk Utility. I can see the external drive, and did a repair disk and verify disk. Several times. Each time it says "This partition map seems to be ok."

However, I am not able to mount it, as that option is greyed out and i can't select it.

 

Also, under the Icon for the external hard drive, it has the Macintosh HD Icon (essentially my computer). I tried to restore this way, didn't work.

 

I need this to mount, as it has all of my itunes stuff on it; dozens of my sons movies, and my entire iTunes library.

 

PLEASE HEEEEELP!! HOW CAN I MOUNT THIS EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE? Thank you in advance

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
