Can't See External Drive In Finder
New to Mac, intermediate PC user. I'm having an issue where I can't see my Seagate Free Agent in my 2011 MacBook Pro (10.7.4).
The drive is NTFS but I'm using Paragon and can write to it, up until last night I had no problems. I use it to Dj and the place I was at last night had two power issues (someone cut the power not realizing it) and I got the "drive did not eject" message. Tonight when I tried to plug in my drive it wasn't recognized in my finder. I thought it could have something to do with the power issues last night and here's what I did in terms of troubleshooting.
Plugged the drive into my PC, ran an error check, everything was fine. I was directed to this forum through Google and read about resetting SMC, did that, no luck. I also read about resetting the PRAM and another user who had an issue with a drive, cleared the cache and everything worked. I tried those as well with no luck.
I then plugged in my brothers identical model drive to see what would happen and sure enough I don't see it in the finder.
I do see it in system report when I go to USB, this is what puzzles me. I'm usually pretty good at troubleshooting but I'm about 2 weeks into owning a Mac and the last time I had used Macs regularly was in school a few years back on G4s, I'm a little out of my element.
This is the model of drive http://www.amazon.ca/Seagate-FreeAge.../dp/B003ELOSJG
I hope I've included enough info, any help would be appreciated.
