Hi ,

My name is***** am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.

I will be glad to assist you with this.

Try these steps please>

  1. Open Disk Utility (choose Go > Utilities to find it).
  2. Check to see if you can find the hard drive in the list on the left.
  3. If you can see the hard drive, check underneath it for a volume. (If it is present it will be greyed out.)
  4. Highlight the volume and click the Mount icon.

Now open a Finder window and check under Devices to see the mounted hard drive.
