SCSI HD Problem
Last night I was doing a low level format of a 4.3GB SCSI drive and the power went out. When I rebooted the drive does not mount and is not recognized by Drive Setup. Intech's HD Speed Tools sees the drive but will not do anything with it. ASP and SCSI Probe also see the drive. Is there anything that I can do to fix it or is the drive toast?

I have a 7100/80 with a 700 MB HD that, after a thunderstorm-caused power blink, is doing exactly the same thing. Norton doesn't see the disk at all. I don't have anything else with which to check it

There is a list of cheap SCSI HDs from MacResQ, but is there anyone who has a solution other than buying a new HD?

I found a solution. My dad had an old copy of FWB, Version 3.0.2 sitting around so I decided to try it. FWB would see the drive and I was able to do a low-level format. Once that was done I used Drive Setup and formatted the drive so that it would have Apple's driver and not the old FWB driver. Now it is working good as new!

Thanks Britney. I'll see if I can find someone with FWB 3.
