I couldn't find this specific problem anywhere, but I apologise if it is something obvious/that has already been asked...
Basically, I attempted to plug my external HD, that I use with my laptop PC (Windows 7) into a Mac earlier today. I realise now that this was probably a little unwise. The Mac didn't recognise it, which didn't come entirely as a surprise. When I came to plug it back in to my laptop though, my laptop wouldn't recognise it either. It just didn't register as anything (no error messages or anything). It can't seem to find hide nor hair of it. I plugged it in to an Xbox 360, primarily to check that it was still working/hadn't been wiped clean, and it still registers with that and everything is still on there. But I just can't get my laptop to acknowledge this. I'll admit this is probably mostly due to ignorance on my part, but any help you guys can provide me with would be appreciated (I have quite a few articles and papers on there that I really do need, as well as all the more spurious but useful stuff such as music and whatnot).
