I have a 2TB Western Digital "My Book Essentials" external drive for Time Machine that has gone missing. Its icon sat on the desktop till sometime in the last day or two, and now Snow Leopard and Disk Utility can't find it anywhere. I have rebooted, unplugged/replugged, changed USB ports, changed outlets for its power adapter, etc. It is still running as usual, nice and quiet with its tiny light on. It still powers up when plugged in. No weird sounds. I plugged it into a Windows computer and it was recognized as an unreadable USB device (since it is formatted for Mac). So apparently it is still a functional something. My secondary TimeMachine drive, also a WD My Book, is still recognized and running as usual. Any help or ideas? Thanks!

I have a all wheel drive vehicle. A number of years ago all four tires were replaced , they have never been rotated. Now the fronts will not pass inspection but the rears probably have about 40% of tread left. I understand that one can ruin the transfer case if one runs different sized tires on this and many other all wheel drives. I would like to buy two of the exact same tires, which are still available, and put those on the back and put the old tires on the front. Do you think that the difference in diameter between the new tires and the partially worn ones will cause a problem with the drive train?
