Dissapearing USB Drives

Recommended Posts

my external USB drives have gone from my sources


You'll need to be more complete with your configuration information.


- Are the USB drives directly connected to the Engine host machine?

- Do the USB drives show up on the Desktop of the Engine host machine?

- Does the boot drive of the Engine host machine show up in Sources?

- Are there any other drives locally connected to the Engine host machine? Do they show up in the Sources list?

- Is the Console application running on the same machine as the Engine?

- Have you tried starting/stopping the Engine from the System Preferences pane?

- Had you ever restarted before? Have you restarted again?

Had you logged in to the machine since restarting it? USB drives don't (always?) mount until a user logs in. You can enable mounting at startup time by typing


sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/autodiskmount AutomountDisksWithoutUserLogin -bool true
