So what is it? HFS or HFS+? Big difference for Linux cause different drivers
are used (hfs and I think hfsplus).
Not sure if OS X still recognizes a HFS drive. Maybe the partition table on
the drive is no longer recognized. Wat do fdisk (in Linux and OS X) make
of it?
How did you partition and format the drive initially?
