    after unintentionally disconnecting a firewire HD without unmounting, I can no longer see the disk on my desktop & finder.
    mount or disk utility however does see it and tells me nothing is wrong.
    I can even search it and open files on it.
    But i still need to physically see it for running an classic app.
    Anyone familiar with this?

    I did something similar once. Basically a combination of turning off then on the external drive, while connected and/or restarting my computer fixed this.

    Somewhere some deamon still thinks the drive is connected, it's just a matter of getting it to reset.
