    Specs:
    IMac 27" 2.7Gmz Quad Core I5 with 12gig Ram
    USB Flash Drives not Appearing on my Desptop
    Hi,
    I have just updated my IMAC 27" and my Flashdrives are not appearing on my Desktop.

    When I put my flash drives using My Old IMAC 27" Running Lion the drive would appear on my Desktop. Now with my new IMac the USB flashdrives only appear when I open Finder and there it is under devices.

    I cannot find where I can tell my IMac to show on desktop as well (or maybe not).

    Can someone point me in the right direction, it would be appreciated.
