Date Protection Mode/Lights flashing

First time posting. My 5D is in data protection mode. Bay 5 is red 1-4 flashing green to yellow. From my readings, this can take a while, days even. But apparently I should be able to access the data. Problem is that my drive is not mounted or showing up on my computer. Is there a safe way to get it to mount so that I can access the files? Or do I need to wait. Dashboard not giving me any indication of how long the wait will be.
