I've hooked up my old external hard drive to this lovely new iMac (27-inch), but it's not registering as being there.  My goal is to pull some files off that backup drive.  I have purchased a newer thunderbolt-enabled external hard drive that will be used to back up this new maching.  Anyone have ideas as how to access my old pics/files?

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
