I have a Mac mini running OSX 10.5.8 

 

I also have a 2TB external hard drive, FAT32 that I use on various Macs and Windows 7 PCs

 

I use the Mac Mini to back up the external drive to a Drobo.

 

Today I went to back up the external drive and it would not mount.  I don't know why.  I've tried several different USB ports.  I've run "Verify" and "Verify and Repair" and I get the message that it is verifying the drive, number of clusters, etc. but no errors that explain why it won't mount. 

 

I've powered down and back up the Mac and still no avail.

 

The drive mounts fine on my Macbook running 10.8.2 and on my Windows 7 PCs but my backup software is on my Mac Mini and I need to figure out what's going on.

 

Anyone able to help?


Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
