Ever since I upgraded to 10.2.4 on my iMac 400 DV I have not been able to get my 80 gig maxtor firewire external drive to show up on my desktop. In fact, if I even have it plugged in, my computer wont boot up???? It just gets to the part where it says "waiting for local drives" and it just sits there w-a-i-t-i-n-g.......... for what, I don't know. I didn't have this problem with 10.2.3. My drive always showed up on the desktop as a firewire drive, ready to use. Does anybody know what might have happened or have a solution? Thanks!!
