I have an iMac running Mountain Lion and just bought an external Lacie Thunderbolt drive.

It seems to work, but does not appear in the Finder. Does anyone know a fix for this?

Can you elaborate on what's happening? What do you mean by "it seems to work"? What appears in Disk Utility? –  robmathers Aug 19 '12 at 19:41
+1 for "does it appear in Disk Utility". –  Harv Aug 19 '12 at 19:51
Have you set the Finder to Show External Disks on the desktop? Check the Finder's preferences dialog. –  Wayfaring Stranger Aug 19 '12 at 23:01
