Check for loose, damaged or worn cables and replace the cables, if necessary. Click the background to bring up the Finder menu in the the top bar. Click "Go" and select "Utilities" from the drop-down list. Select your hard drive, optical drive or other attached drive in the sidebar. Click the "Mount" button. If the operating system already mounted the drive, an "Unmount" button displays instead. Click the "First Aid" tab and select "Repair Disk," if available.
You may need to restart your computer and follow the prompts to complete the repair. Click the "Finder" icon in the Dock and look for your drive in the sidebar.
Restart "Disk Utility" if you had to restart your computer to perform a repair and you still don't see your drive. Select your hard drive from the list and click the "Erase" tab.
