disk utility found an error but cannot repair
i ran Disk Utility to verify my external hard drive (after my entire system got weird from unsuccessfully attempting to install Leopard on my Tiger 10.4.10 Macbook.
**Phase 1 - Read FAT
Unable to read FAT (input/output error)
Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit
1 non HFS volume checked
Volume needs repair
ok, fine...but it can't complete the verifying disk or repairing of the disk, so what can i do now? the external hard drive is detected obviously, but doesn't appear on my desktop as usual...
