External Hard-Drive "disappears" from desktop

My FireLite portable hard-drive disappeared from my screen after I was changing the security preferences. I switched the "Ownership & Permissions" section to "No Access" thinking that it would only lock the information on it. Instead, it disappeared all together. Even after removing it and replugging it in, it still does not reappear. Does anyone have any knowledge of how to fix this?

wow... you may have to try to access it on a windows machine to remove the data or change the permissions.
is the data critical? if not, you may be able to reformat. but otherwise, you may be really hosed. perhaps someone else can come up with something more hopeful.
