You haven't provided anything I asked for except for the output from diskutil list, which is not helpful. I understand diskutil activity doesn't work on your system; that's fine. You have not provided the disk and filesystem information I asked for from Disk Utility, which I even provided step-by-step instructions on how to do.

I've flagged the question for moderator review and asked that it be closed since you've refused to provide the necessary information.

Open Disk Utility. Select the drive. Click File-> Get Info. Select all the text in the window. Click Edit->Copy. Paste it into the question. Click on the volume ("Broken"). Repeat pasting this info. Next, in Terminal, type "mount". Copy the output and paste it into the question.

Clicking Mount in Disk Util forces a mount. Automatic mounting can be aborted by a bunch of different factors. Please provide *all the information I asked for, not just the output of diksutil list. Lastly, the device name is disk2; disk2s2 is a partition.

There's no real functional difference between a device appearing at boot, and a device being plugged in after boot. The same logic is followed. It's not the same logic as when you click "mount". The fact that this only happens to one of four drives in your system indicates strongly that it IS a problem specific to that one drive, which is why I've repeatedly asked you for several pieces of information about that one drive. Please provide that information by clicking "edit" below your question and pasting it into the question, or by using pastebin and including a link.

Adding volumes to startup items (if it will even work) is a bandaid, not a fix to the original problem.

Non-journaled HFS+ hasn't been the default for many years. Journaling should be enabled on all your HFS+ volumes, unless you have a very good reason not to - I think some Linux/BSD HFS utilities don't like journaled HFS+.

It's only happening to one drive, and it's not automounting. Unmount and unplug the drive, then reconnect it, and I bet it won't mount automatically. There's nothing special about boot-time mounting, really. Please post all the information I requested by updating your question, not by pasting it here - the formatting is broken.

Please provide the diagnostics I asked for - the output from Get Info on the volume which won't automount, output of mount once it has been mounted, diskutil list (the partition list) of the drive, and diskutil activity output during mounting.
