External Drive does not appear in Finder "Devices"
I just noticed that my external drive used for Time Machine has disappeared from the Finder "Devices" section. Thankfully it continues to work fine and Time Machine can access it, but it makes me nervous!
Disk Utility sees the drive and partition just fine. I've run Disk Utility Repair disk both from the startup drive and the install DVD and there are no errors. Repair permissions is greyed out/disabled under both conditions. All the rest of my internal and external drives are visible in Devices.

That did it! I used the "GO" menu option of finder to go to the computer, and the drive was visible. Perhaps it had accidentally gotten dragged off the left side... Anyway THANK YOU!
A really quick resolution.
