I appreciate the the fact that you are helping me brainstorm. The external G-Raid is HFS+ and I always start the externals before starting the computer. As I mentioned previously, it shows up fine on my 2012 Mac Pro running Sierra as does everything else. My next task will be to drag the Mac Pro into the light and try re-seating the SATA PCI card. I even went into preferences and made sure that all external drives show up on the desktop. Again, thank you very much for your efforts to help. The sleuthing continues....

Update: I just used an external FireWire drive with OS 10.7.5 Lion to restart the Mac Pro and the G-Raid SATA disk showed up on the desktop right away. So, the drive shows up with OS 10.7.5 but not with OS 10.6.8. Weird. Originally, when the computer was running 10.6.8 there was no issue.
