I upgraded to Leopard about a month or so ago, and ever since my upgrade my external hard drive wont show up in Finder.

I have to either use the keyboard shortcut, or Finder menu and click, Go > Go To Folder. Then I put in the name of my external, and from there I can open my External HD folder.

Why won't the External HD icon just appear on the Desktop like it used to, before my upgrade, once it's plugged into my laptop? What do I have to change?

It's formatted for Mac OSX Extended (Journaled) and this is driving me crazy.

I'm new to the board, so I apologize if this is in the wrong section of the forum, feel free to move it and let me know!

Thanks, glad to finally be a member here.
