My 1 year old unplugged my external HD and now it's not showing up after being plugged back into my late '09 mac pro. It rarely comes unplugged but whenever it does it takes awhile to show. Why is this! I think in the past I may have had to restart.

I have this issue all the time. My solution is to plug and unplug the USB / Firewire cable. This has always worked for me.
