Just a test of the new thread issue.

Off and on for the last couple months I’ve been trying to re-
initialize an external 250 GB FW drive that had been used as a
bootable backup after I started seeing the “This drive is not
readable by this computer” alert. It simply will not initialize; the
progress bar just keeps moving with no indication of what’s actually
going on and I’ve let it run for days at a time. Tried Drive Genius,
Disk Utility ad nauseam. At this point there’s nothing on it that
needs to be recovered, I just want to be able to use it again. Of
course it’s just past its warranty so I’m unsure as to what the most
cost effective approach is. It’s a paperweight now so I’m hoping
someone has another suggestion?
