Hi All,


Time Machine (TM) just killed two external hard disk drives.  I am running 10.8.3 on a MPB 2.3 GHz I7 with 16GB SDRAM and I have had problems with TM not recognizing the external hard disks.  I purchased a new 2TB firewire HD and started TM and about 2 hours into the backup TM error out with an error and the disk no longer is recognized and can't be initialized using the disk utility as it says there are zero bytes available.


I reconnected my MBP to the original MT HD and it proceeded to do the same thing and the HD is no longer recognized and can't be initialized...


Anyone else seen this or have a clue how to fix it?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3), 16GB SDRAM
