Hi, so my 3 TB external Seagate hard drive stopped working so i took it apart and reduced to an internal hard drive and plugged it into my computer to see if it was the adapter not working but after a few test i realized it had been corrupted and somehow turned into a RA filesystem so i followed this guide http://html5.litten.com/how-to-fix-external-disk-drive-suddenly-became-raw/ to fix the hard drive and i got as far as saying yes to writing the partition table and after i pressed Y, it would go straight to "you will have to reboot for the change to take affect" and when i rebooted, the hard drive still wasnt read in windows. I would also like to mention that at first the hard drive was not even recognized in Mount Devices menu, but after trying to write the partition table it now recognizes it but when i try to mount it, it just refreshes the GUI and stays unmounted.
I ran the short self test and it completed with read failure. i have attached the log file of the test.
also here are a few images what James Litten required of another person with a similar problem (included is the picture of the fdisk -l as well) http://imgur.com/a/mt6Di
Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated. If any more information is required please ask me. Thanks for looking and for the help.
