I'm trying to connect a thunderbolt external drive to my Mac:


However, the disk is not being recognized. I suspect that the "thunderbolt" port on the back of this iMac is really a mini-display port.

Thank you.

There's an FAQ on the Apple Support page: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5219?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US#4 Since your Mac is Mid 2010, it does not have a thunderbolt port.
