That's because, as I told you in the other thread you created, you don't have the correct drive selected in the left window pane.

Your external drive is not showing up in Disk Utility. This means that it is not being recognized by your computer. Make sure it is plugged in properly and that the drive is actually powered on (making noise).

Be aware that although some 2.5" (notebook) hard drives can be powered by the USB bus, others can not - you may need to use an external power source.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
