    Can see my USB stick in Disk Utility but not Finder (SL)
    The USB stick (formatted as NTFS) works on 3 of my other computers without a problem - Windows 7 and Linux OSes. However on Snow Leopard it just doesn't show in Finder. When I open Disk Utility, I can see the Drive and Snow Leopard also picks up its Volume Name.

    I even have Linux installed on the MBP and the USB drive is being picked up under Linux and again works without issue.

    Any ideas why Snow Leopard is not recognising it?

    A question first: Do you have the show "external disks" on the desktop box checked off in the Finder preferences?
