i have a WD My Passport Ultra 2TB that i use for time machine, i tried plugging it into may early 2011 macbook pro 13" this morning and it won't mount and causes disk utility to take an awful amount of time to open, but, when i mount the drive to say an Ubuntu VM or a Linux PC it shows up and is accessible, when i use terminal however, OS X recognizes that the drive is there and lists partitions (EFI, and Time Machine) but won't allow me to mount it, if i try from terminal i get an error about the drive timing out while trying to mount it, i have OS X 10.11.1, i need to know what i can do so that i can continue to backup my mac.
