    In the past, when I opened up the Mobile Me iDisk, the icon appeared on my desktop. I was able to drag and drop items to save directly. For the past 4-6 weeks, it doesn't appear anymore. Where did it go, and how can I get it back. I have to open the folder to drag stuff into it now.

    I don't think an iDisk icon is supposed to appear on the desktop unless you enabled iDisk syncing from the iDisk tab in your MobileMe system preferences. Its meant for use when you're not connected to the internet so that the next time you are connected, it'll automatically sync up to the MobileMe cloud.

    I was wondering the same thing, I just opened my MobileMe prefs to find I was not logged in. I logged back in and my drive came back. :)

    Only preference choice I have under Mobile Me/iDisk is a folder layout.

    When I logged back into Mobile Me, everything was there, like my mail, etc.

    If I double click the iDisk icon I have on my sidebar, the folder opens and I have access to the files. It's just the icon doesn't appear on my desktop.

    Or am I looking in the wrong place here??

    >>this thread is similar. <<

    >>Go to Finder menu>Preferences and make sure that there is a check next to Connected Servers in the General Tab. You might also want to click the Sidebar tab and check next to iDisk to make sure that it will show up in your sidebar too.<<

    The above solved my problem. Thanks.
