I have a similar problem.
I run a MacBook Pro Mac OS X 10.6.8 v1.1
Seagate 500Gb External HD partitioned 1/2 Time Machine, 1/2 important data.
I plugged it into my new TV and now I can't see the data part on my laptop anymore...only the time machine part shows up on the desktop.
Tried the reboot option as per suggestions here...
I have run Disk Utility and it says the disk needs repairing (only the data part - time machine tests ok)
What options do I have left and have I lost this data forever?
