Disk insertion not readable

Lately, my iPod mini has been making funny noises, and whenever I turn it on, the exclamation mark folder error pops up, and then my iPod shuts off. I read in the support section to charge it first, but when I plugged it into my computer, an error popped up ( on my computer screen). It says:
Disk Inserion
The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer.
On my ipod scheen, it keeps flashing from the battery charger icon, to the apple logo, and to the folder exclamaion mark error, and the do not disconnect symbol.
I have no idea what is going on, so could someone please help me!

Hello, sorry I did not make this clear. The file I have to remove is a driver named 'LexarFilterScheme.kext' found in the main System/Library/ Extention folder. Delete this file, you may have to put in your password to be able to do this. Then re-boot and you should have your DVD player back in action.
This seems to fix the DVD issues, but the next time I wish to use the secure vault of the Lexar Jump Drive I have to re-install the driver. You can use the drive with no problems if you do not install the secure vault driver.
This conflict is with OS X (all) and OS 9.

  • G4, 400Mhz,  OS X, (10.4.6) Disk insertion not readable messsage.

    I've installed an internal secondary hard drive, 120GB, Barracuda 7200 RPM to my G4 which contains a 10GB hard drive as master drive. I'm trying to install a second hard drive as a slave but I keep getting a Disk insertion not readable message. The computer recognizes the new HD but won't initailize. I tried swapping jumper location but to no avail. I'm at my wits end, please help.

    That is an older G4... and Disk Utility launches, you try to use the Erase or Partition and it fails?
    Master should be on the end of the IDE chain, as well as jumpered as master or even "master with slave."
    Try booting from Tiger DVD with just the 120 GB drive, and set as master or master only. See if you can do it that way. Or just boot from DVD first and see if it will let you. Sometimes works.
    Also, you could try setting both drives to Cable Select and see.
    10GB was/is small and slow, you should see a real nice boost. If you want to add more drives, consider SATA and then you can use larger and faster drives.

  • My Book and disk inserted not readable

    Whenever I boot my Mac  OS 10.9X system, I see the error message: "the disk you inserted was not readable by this computer." My BOOK is working and is use for my Time Machine. I am given a choice to "eject, or ignore."  I have used both to get rid of the message.  I have tried to update the firmware for my WD MY (the only external drive connected to my system.), but WD tells me that MAC OS is managing MY BOOK which is connected via FIREWIRE port.  Is the message I am seeing associated with the MAC OS system?  Have you any suggestions to get rid of this annoying message? 

    Hello Harold,

  • When insert my lexar USB flash drive I get the message that the disk was not readable by this computer.  It has worked previous to this and I do not want to lose the data by reformatting the drive.  How can I reformat this drive and not lose my data?

    You can't reformat it and not wipe everything on it.
    Have you tried a different USB port?
    Only other option, back it up on a different computer.

  • The disk is not readable

    Hi everyone, I store a lot of my stuff on my external hard drive. However this morning it wouldn't mount. Instead I got this message
    The same message pops up if I try connecting it to other computers. If i open Disk Utility it looks like this
    If anyone knows what I need to do, please tell me. I have a lot of very important files on it that are not backed up, since I recently lost my back up disk.
    Thank you, I'm desperate, Sebastian

    DiskWarrior usually has a better chance of fixing such problems. But no guarantee, and it will cost you about $80 to find out. When DW works, it's absolute magic, because it just fixes things back to the way they were. And for some reason, it is able to fix things that Apple's free DiskUtility can't:
    http://www.alsoft.com/DiskWarrior/
    Data Rescue II from ProSoft has a good chance of recovering important files if the disk can't be repaired:
    http://www.prosofteng.com/
    You can download a demo version that can show you what files can be recovered. Then pay and register to actually complete the recovery.
    You have to have room on another hard disk to put the files you recover with Data Rescue.

  • Snow Leopard disk is not readable

    My Imac and MacbookPro is spitting the Snow Leopard disk. When I insert the disk, the machine makes some noise and then spits it out. Does anyone have any solution ?

    Try starting up to the disk. No luck? Go to an Apple Store and get a replacement on the spot in all likelihood.

  • "Disk not readable...", Verify & Repair fail, Zero Out, HFS+ still fail

    First, a time machine error came up saying the volume could not be found. Tried disk verify, disk repair (in disk utility) restarting, reconnecting, but to no avail. On restarting, computer says "Disk was not readable by this computer." I then Zeroed out all the data and reformatted the drive to Mac OS Extended (Journaled). TM worked for most of the day until tonight when another error message came up saying that the next backup failed because it required 168GB, but only 49GB was available. Yet I had done virtually nothing since the last backup the hour earlier. I clicked "Back up Now" to try and get it to maybe re-evaluate the situation and maybe do the backup, but instead, I get the error that I got before - "The volume could not be found" (or something to that effect). Upon restarting, I again get "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer".
    Is there something I am doing wrong? What can I do to fix this, or prevent this from happening later?

    This is what the error message was before, and is what it is now.
    You had these sorts of errors, then zeroed-out the drive, now you have them again?
    There's only one conclusion: your drive is failing. They don't always just crash and burn.
    Note that the volume name should be "Time Machine", but Disk Utility sees it as "disk2s1" for some reason.
    That's it's internal name to OSX. Use +System Profiler+ (Apple menu, +About this Mac,+ then +More Info.+
    Look in the sidebar for FireWire or USB (whichever it is), select it, and you'll see disk2s1 listed as BSD name.
    Time Machine Buddy seems to freeze most of my other widgets (can't type in calculator, can't delete Time Machine Buddy). It doesn't seem to do anything either, It just sits there saying "Backup Status" and "Messages" but no messages, just "....".
    That's not normal, if you've had a successful backup recently, or one currently in progress.
    An earlier post had a similar problem, because somehow he didn't have permission to read his own system log. From the Finder menubar, select Go, then +Go to folder,+ then type /var/log
    That should list, among other things, system.log Double-click it. If nothing shows in the center portion, post back and we'll fix it.
    But your main problem is an unreliable drive.

  • Disk Not Readable? What!

    Aloha all. I searched for info in the Tiger forums, as well as here before posting, but came up empty so I'm gonna start a new topic. Here goes...
    I copied a bunch of songs (all legal downloads, & imports from my personal cd collection) and burned them to a DVD disk, which is an option from iTunes. Burning went smoothly, not to long, etc.. I then re-inserted the disk later in the day, and got "disk is not readable, would you like to reformat, yadda, yadda. My question is why would a disk that was burned on my mac not be readable on the same mac that burned it? Part two. Is there a way to fix this bizarre behavior?
    I did a little experiment and did the same procedure using OS9 on my son's G4 and it worked fine. Any info, tips, suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Mahalo in advance, JB

  • MicroSD not "readable" by Macbook after inserting into Android phone

    I inserted a microSD full of photos in my android, which didn't recognize the card. When I put it back in my Macbook Retina, it said the disk was not readable, and it opens DiskUtitlity. Android must have tried to format the card, or done something to it to make it unrecognizable by OSX, but if I re-format it to my Mac, the information will be lost. How can I access the files? I tried placing card back in Android and connecting to Mac with USB, but as I stated, the Android didn't recognize the card in the first place.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled my printer and everything seems to work fine now.

  • Disk not readable - now programmes freezing

    I recently used a new GoFlex Seagate external HD and had problems with it from the outset - perhaps I didn't format it correctly for mac. Statered getting 'disk is not readable', eventually sorted the disk out with disk utility so I can use it but kept getting the disk not readable alert even if the disk was not inserted. I've zapped the PRAM and reset the SMC, now not getting the disk alert but the compter keeps freezing. It only happens in some programmes, usually in Lightroom 4 which I use 90% of the time. I have to do a force shut down, then it'll work fine for about 30 min before freezing again. Seems fine if I just use it with Chrome.
    Many thanks for any help you can give.

    Weird.
    You did some good troubleshooting. How stable does it feel when you boot the computer to safe mode?
    Also sometimes stability issues can be user specific, so maybe its not the program itself causing a problem or the operating system. But maybe something else like start up items, or your user cache and plists may need to be troubleshot.
    There was something I had seen from Apple about how to do safe mode and what it is lemme see if I can find it.

    this will show you how to create a new user to test with. The instructions are for 10.6 but the steps are the same.

  • FAT formatted external hard drive is not 'readable by this computer'

    Hello support community
    The problem: when I insert my 'FAT' formatted external hard drive (Samsung M3) into my mac book pro it comes up with the error message that says "the inserted disk is not readable by this computer" and I therefore cannot access the files.
    The story (potential further details):
    1. I had a problem with my mac where it took hours to load each time I turned it on, would only work when power was plugged in etc. so I had to reformat my mac hard drive (when I tried to veriify it said repair, that wouldn't work). So i'm starting with a recently reformatted, clean mac.
    2. Before doing this I reformatted my external hard drive (whilst on windows machine) to FAT32 (so I can use on both windows and mac) so that I could back up my files.
    3. I then transferred files from mac onto external hard drive and then also put them on a windows machine.
    4. After reformatting mac hard drive when I then tried to transfer files back onto the mac I get the 'not readable' error.
    The technical details:
    Thank you very much indeed anyone who can help or can try and help
    Cheers

  • Disk Insertion Failure

    Please help...
    My friends Gen3 ipod is sick
    I plug it into her powerbook G4 and get a "Disk Insertion" error that states the disk is not readable by this computer. So I select Initialize. The Disk utility appears and I select first aid and verify disk and get this error
    Underlying task reported failure on exit

    Then I repair disk and get ”first aid failed”
    Underlying task reported failure on exit

    What Can I do next? Oh it has a 18.5gb capacity but only 12.1 is available and there are 0 songs...
    Powerbook G4   Mac OS X (10.4.3)  

    The first step would be to use whatever tools might be available from Seagate to determine if the drive is having a hardware problem. If it's not a hardware problem, then, it's likely time to bring out the heavy duty disk repair utilities that are available for the Mac OS. I've had good luck in the past with Disk Warrior (www.alsoft.com) and Tech Tool Pro (www.micromat.com).

  • USB external drive not readable by mac but readable by windows

    Hi, I have a usb external drive (Seagate FreeAgentDesktop Media) which works fine with windows xp but cannot be read by the mac. I reinstalled the mac a couple of days ago because it was being very slow and I had a bunch of junk on it. Anyway, after that, it won't read the external drive. It will give me an error message saying that the disk is not readable by the computer. Sometimes it will give me the message saying that the drive was unmounted improperly by windows and for me to unmount it correctly. When I go back to windows, it's there, then I restart and go back to mac, it'll give me the message that the disk is not readable. I have 2 of these drives and both of them have this issue. I also tried disk warrior but it says that the file system cannot be rebuilt. I tried USB flashdrives and they work. I got all the data off of one of the external drives into the other and I couldn't format or even erase the drive because it says that the permission was denied. However, I could format it and erase it with the installation DVD. But I had the same result no matter what format they were in. I have very important data on these drives and I really need to be able to use them with both operating systems. Thanks a lot!

    Hi Schmerz Meister;
    If DiskWarrior say it can rebuild the disk about your only other alternative it to reformat it.
    This will of course destroy all data on the disk so make sure you have copies of the data elsewhere,
    Allan

  • External hard drive not readable

    I have a Seagate 60 GB  and a WD 120 external hard drives that have been using on my macbook for about a year and it's formated to work on a mac. Recently, whenever I plug it in, it says that the disk is not readable. It shows up on disk utility, but nowhere else. It says not supported after SMART status. verify disk is not available. nor are repair disk, verify disk permissions, or repair disk permissions.
    I've never traveled with them before, I dont know if maby something happened in the airports or something.
    Please help.

    So I guess this means I've lost this information??
    There's a good chance that that's true, but there is still hope of recovering it. Assuming you have your Mac working, download one or both of these data recovery utilities and see whether they tell you that some or all of your data is recoverable. Both utilities are offered in free demo versions that will show you exactly what you'd be able to recover with the full, purchased version. Note that everything you recover must be saved to a different disk from the one it's being recovered from. If your Mac's internal drive is large enough to accommodate everything you may want to recover, that will be OK.
