I have a 160 GB iogear (USB 2.0), ion-triselect external hard drive. It has been working fine for the past 4 years, and suddenly a couple of days ago it stopped showing up on the desktop. It does show up in the disk utilities, and according to the disk utilities, it is all systems normal. No problems. Any suggestions on how to get this drive to be seen on the desktop?

QUOTE Thanks
