New 11" 2011 MBA won't recognize WD 2TB Ext. Drive

    Hi everyone,

    When I plug my new WD ext. 2TB drive into either USB port on my new 2011 MBA 11", the icon does not appear on the desktop, as it does on my recent MBP 13". However, the drive does show up when I go to disk utility.

    Is this a Lion issue? If so, how do I get the icon to appear so I can drag and drop stuff onto the desktop?

    So you have checked post #2 and it didn't help?

    Is it greyed out or is it mounted? Does it show up in the Finder's Sidebar (if mounted)?

    Does it look like this?

    Or does it look like this?

    It wasn't mounted, but your post actually led me to another that helped out, problem solved. Thanks!

    To what solution did it let you? Maybe future posters or readers might benefit from that.
