Currently Being ModeratedOct 15, 2006 7:34 PM (in response to Thomas Bryant)It is a Maxtor 6Y250M0
It shows up in the Disk Utilitiy but it is in a light gray color, not bold writing.
Tried to repair and I got a Error saying "First Aid Failed. Disk Utility stopped verifying "Audio Drive" because the following erroe encountered: The underlying task reported failure on exit."
Thanks for the help, the drive contains all of my recorded music for the past year and I don't have it backed up...trying not to freak out too badlyMac G5, Mac OS X (10.4.8)

When I run Disk Utility on that drive again, though, I still received an error "Verify volume failed with error Could not unmount disk"
Also, now Disk Utility won't repair my external OWC firewire drive. It gives me the same messageMac G5, Mac OS X (10.4.8)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 15, 2006 11:11 PM (in response to Andrew Onaka1)are you running Disk Utility when booted from the OS CD or when booted from the hard drive?
if you are booted from the hard drive, it could be busy doing something and could show error message.

You might read this relevant Apple Article. As Arnie inferred, attempt the verification or repair with Disk Utility while booted from the install disc. Alternately, for the startup volume, you may use fsck as shown in this Apple Document.
