    Hello guys,

    I've just noticed that my old usb stick formatted by FAT32 file system is not visible in finder, but it is in Disk Utility. Strange is, that I've tried to format another HDD with MS-DOS(FAT) file system with Disk Utility and it worked, disk is formatted, but again not visible in finder.
    Can somebody please try it if it's only my problem or general,because it worked before in previous os mavericks.

    Thanks a lot

    Just reformatted a 64GB USB MS-DOS (FAT) in Disk Utility and it's mounted on the desktop and is listed in the Finder Sidebar under Devices.

    Do you have Finder set to display removable drives on the desktop? Are the drives visible in the Finder sidebar?

    Have you tried manually mounting the fat partition in Disk Utility? (or diskutil on the CLI).

    Yes I did, it says Disk can not be connected, try to use disk rescue utility, but I can't, buttons for rescue are not visible :(
    I had Tuxera NTFS installed yesterday I though that this can be the problem but nothing change after uninstall.

    Nobody has solution ? :(
    I have no idea how to resolve it. My system doesn't see "windows fat32" and "MS DOS fat"
    It's not only finder, problem is somewhere inside the Yosemite.

    Actually system sees it just can not connect, because disk is visible in Disk Utility.
