As you can see from attachment pictures the drive is fine.

The format of the disk is fat32. Mac lion os can't open in windows 8.1 it's ok.

I made a research for about 2 days and nothing can't find except for this code (Mac OS X: Mounting FAT32 external hard drive via Terminal command line sudo mkdir /Volumes/EXT_HD, sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk1s1 /Volumes/EXT_HD/) for terminal that has the opportunity to unlock the disk for lion. With this solution i must put this code to terminal every time my macbook reboot or startup. That's a big problem and i'm finally very dissapointed. Is there a real solution outside for mount to mac lion environment my book essential 3tb usb 3.0?


Please give me a solution as possible. Thanx.pic1.pngpic2.png
