I have an external lacie 120 gb hd connected by firewire and a dual 1 ghz g4. My hd will not show up on the desktop or anywhere else. I've checked my system preferences and I don't see a problem and I've also run disk utiltiy and that did nothing. Any suggestions on what to do next?

I connected it to another computer and it mounted onto the desktop immediately. It will not let me force mount it in disk utility.
