Similar thing happened to me - I got a "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer" for my 1TB Western Digital external drive. Took over a month to re-rip my movies. Thank goodness for DVD's.
Pretty despicable behavior to try to ruin people's day because you are unhappy with something. Maybe you can get some jollies by chucking some liquid onto the laptop keyboards at the Apple store. Woohoo, bad behavior day.
