    Hello,
    I have an iMac with several external HD's only one of them will not mount. I'm not sure why it's self powerd (plugged in the wall). I have boot camp installed, 2 maxtor hd's and then the problem child Acomdata HD (used to be hooked up to a mac mini that's no longer in service.

    I'm trying to organize two itunes libraries into one, but can't seem to get that drive to mount any tips?

    Stop abusing your iMac and maybe it will mount all of your external hard drives? Sorry, couldn't resist! Does the drive show up in Disk Utility?
