Hi and thanks for any ideas, I've had a 1TB Lacie rugged HD for about a year and it works fine with my MacBook Pro and my wife's MacBook. Just bought a Mac Mini and... the mini doesn't see it. I've tried the Firewire and USB connection, switching everything on and off very carefully - nothing seen. Nothing comes up in 'about this mac' or disk utility. Once it's plugged back into the laptops, no problem. Just for kicks I tried accessing it on the mini through wifi, whilst attached to the laptops - that's doable. But not particularly helpful. Cheers for your thoughts.
