Help! I accidentally locked my hard drive and now no icon shows up on my desktop

While trying to make my hard drive invisible to other users on our work network, I accidentally locked it in the "get info" window on my Mac. It now no longer shows up as an icon on my desktop. I am running OSX. I tried shutting down the computer and unplugging it and all devices for 15 minutes to reboot the drive but that did not work. The drive shows up on "About My Mac" as a listed drive, and I tried to repair the disk permissions in disc utility, but only repair disk and verify disk are available options for the drive. Help! What should I do?

SOURCE: No external drive icon on desk top

This happened to me as well - i have been reading that it could be the power supply adaptor. If you can try another one - it might solve the problem. The adaptors seem to either be faulty or made to stop working. Great news for us the consumer!!

SOURCE: trouble seeing my lacie drive possible mounting issue

Hello,

It sounds like the RAID controller in the LAcie drive may have failed. When this happens generally the data on the drive is left intact but you will require a new casing for the drives and the help of a data recovery pro to get the files off before you can re-initialize the set. Unfortunately all the good free/cheap utilities work only on single drives so you will need the help of a pro with high level software and additional equipment to retrieve the files.

If you are in North America I would recommend Armor-IT Data Recovery, they're listed in the FixYa service database for most US states. If you're outside North America, post your location and I will help you find an appropriate service.

Unit downloaded fine ad the did the back up of the drive fine.started the updates and the firmware stopped and then the drive locked up how to access the drive again after reboot nothing shows G: F:


  1. To restore the Western Digital icon to the drive letter for the external drive in "My Computer".
  2. Please go to the Western Digital Download Library and download the WD Logo Icon which has a file name of External Icon.zip when you download it.
  3. Save the file to your desktop and use a file compression software like Winzip to extract the files inside the .zip file to your desktop. When it's unzipped, it will create a folder named "ExternalIcon" on your desktop.
  4. Double-click on the ExternalIcon folder. It will open a Windows Explorer showing a folder named, Autorun, and a file named, Autorun.inf.Double-click on My Computer and it will open.
  5. Double-click on the driver letter that represents the Western Digital drive you want the icon on and it will open.
  6. Highlight the Autorun folder and the Autorun.inf file. Right-click on them, and left-click on Cut when the Menu appears.
  7. Right-click in the open space of the drive that you opened in the new Explorer window, and then left-click on Paste.
  8. Close both Explorer windows, safely remove the external hard drive by using the Safely Remove icon in the system tray, shut down the computer, and unplug the external drive from the computer.
  9. After you reboot into Windows, reconnect the external drive to the computer again, and the Western Digital Icon should now be displayed with the drive letter in My Computer.

If these steps do not correct the problem, you will need to re-format your External Hard Drive ***WARNING*** FORMATTING A HARD DRIVE WILL ERASE, YOU WILL LOSE, ALL DATA

I need the icon back on my Inspiron 570 desktop. It helps me adjust the volumn by showing a little meter that you can raise or lower. HOw can I get it on my screen . thanks for any help.


There are two reasons one due to the hidden desktop icons and the other due to different user login. If you have logged in using another user ID, try logoff and login to your ID.
If it is due to hidden desktop icons, then right click on the empty area of the desktop, select "Arrange Icons by" on the context menu, and then click on "Show Desktop Icons"

Hard drive disappeared from my desktop


Hello,
This should help.

Launch ScriptEditor and copy and paste this into the script window:


tell application "System Events"


set visible of disk "NameofDisk" to true


end tell


tell application "Finder" to quit


delay 1


tell application "Finder" to launch


Replace NameofDisk with the actual name of your disk, hit the Compile icon to make sure the script didn't acquire any errors, and then hit run. This should set the visible attribute back to visible and quit and relaunch the Finder, thus making the change available.


The same thing can happen to other drives, both internal and external. You can use the same Applescript to fix those as well, just put in the name of the drive.

La Cie (500 GB) icon not showing up on desktop

If you are having trouble with the drive it is possible that the USB controller on the drive failed but the drive its self should be fine.

I would try the drive on another computer to see if it detects properly. Sometimes if the drive gets stopped improperly this can cause detection propblems but connecting it to another computer will force a scan of the drive that will repair any corrupted files that may be on the drive. Also check to see if the drive shows in disk management. The links below will show you how to check this.

If the drive does not show up in disk management and the drive is not in warranty I would recommend opening the drive and connecting it directly to your computer to access the data.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Assume you are using Windows XP..
Go to My Computer >C Drive (your hard drive icon)>open programmes, find the Internet explorer folder, open it and right click on the "iexplore" icon and create shortcut..it will then prompt you to place the shortcut on the desktop..windows Vista is virtually the same

When my imac g4 tries to bootup it shows a folder icon


It sounds like the system is corrupted. What I would do is to get your instal disk and boot up holding down the c key on your keyboard. Once you have booted up go to the file menu and run disk utility to verify and repair the hard drive. Then go to the instal menu and instal a fresh system remembering to preserve the users data so you do not wipe anything. Hopefully this will work.
