If you try it on a couple of different computers and it does not read, you may need to reach out to PG Support for a replacement. You could also try to reformat the drive if you had previously backed up all the files on another storage device.

If it were me;
There are little screws on the case (or possible it snaps apart).
Open the case and check the wire connections. Chances are you jarred one loose. Others here have done that (or had it arrive in this condition due to shipping).

Just open it carefully and don't drop the little screws.
Then assemble it back carefully.

Formatting is likely not an option if the computer doesn't recognize it.

It’s quite possible to ruin a hard drive by dropping it. The last one I dealt with fell 3 feet onto a carpet and was toast. So don’t do that if it can be avoided.

I back mine up immediately on receipt then put it back into the box where it stays. Since I can’t download the audiophile libraries, I don’t want to depend on having only one copy in a fragile environment.

Next I install all the libraries onto a 2T SSD that I use for all of my VIs (only the libraries—the BIAB app must be installed on the boot drive, of course). It’s not intuitive but pretty easy once you figure it out. This plus my boot SSD are backed up normally in Time Machine.

NI Komplete also ships on a hard drive but I don’t make a backup since I can download everything (even if it does take over 18 hours—yikes!). I install those libraries on the same SSD as the BIAB libraries.

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
