    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.......................
    1.This can be the problem of the connection.

    2.There may be any loose connection.

    3.If that is not your problem then you check the cable.

    4.If that is also not you problem then the problem is with the external Hard Disk which you have connected.

    5.So try to connect it to the another device.

    6.If it works fine there then the problem is with your Mac so try to fix it.

    All the best..................

    MacMini fails to read external hard disk

    On my MacMini 2012, I am noticing that it fails to read the external hard disk when connected. After connecting with the external hard disk, there was a short blip and after that the screen turns blank. What do I do now as I am clueless? Please suggest a solution.
