External disk doesn't show on desktop

I just recently downgraded the OS on an older Mac Pro from Lion (10.7.4) to Snow Leopard (10.6.8) to run Final Cut Studio again. My external SATA drive doesn't show up on the desktop but the same drive shows up on another Mac Pro using OS Sierra (10.12.6). On the Snow Leopard Mac I have a Tempo SATA PCI card and everything seemed fine a few years ago when I was using this exact same setup on the same machine. The Tempo install instructions state that there is no need for a separate driver for the card and that the OS should recognize the external drive. Have I overlooked something? Suggestions are welcome.
