    Hey everyone
    I installed SL two days ago and my LaCie firewire external has been working fine. i put it to sleep last night, and when I woke it up today, I got the warning telling me that I had disconnected it improperly (Which I hadn't, because the computer was asleep and the drive never was turned off). This has happened before and I usually am able to shut it off then turn it on again. But this time it won't mount. It shoes up in Disk Utility and System Profiler, but not in the Finder.
    I have tried switching firewire ports and restarting but to no avail.
    Any suggestions?

    Hmm. So you've tried running Disk Utility, clicking on the partition you want to mount, then clicking on 'Mount'... and nothing happens there, too?
