After installing macOS Sierra. There is no disk external drive appears on the desktop.

The external hard drive still works on macOS El Capitan, but after I installed the new operating system the drive doesn't appear on the desktop. But I found it appears on disk utility. How should I solve this problem?

  • I used the iMac (mid 2011).
  • I tried to restart but still problem.


Is the option to display external drives on the desktop yet activated in Finder preferences?  Check the Finder preferences.

  • Unable to Scan to the computer after downloading macOS Sierra. Is this a software problem?

    How can I scan from HP Envy 4500 to computer after downloading macOS Sierra?

    Hello wdemetris,

    Thanks for asking for scanning helps here in the Apple Support communities. I understand how it is important to have access to your scanner and am happy to offer help for this.

    As a precaution, we always recommend that you have backups to make sure that all your data is safe. You can perform a backup using Time Machine and an external hard drive. Use this article to help make a backup of your Mac: use Time Machine to back up or restore your Mac.

    Then, in accordance with article help: printer and scanner for Sierra, El Capitan, Yosemite, and the Mavericks macOS software, the HP Envy 4500 e-all-in-one is supported for printing and scanning. The drivers must be installed, but if not, if it please go to the App Store and check the updates tab to see if there are updates for HP. If there is, please install.

    If you have only general questions about how to get your updated scanner in place or how to scan pictures, please check out these two articles: macOS Sierra: implement a scanner & macOS Sierra: scan images or documents. If everything is configured correctly and you still have problems scanning, please visit this help article: macOS Sierra: scanning troubleshooting.

    Thanks again and have a great rest of your day.

  • directions to clean install MacOS Sierra

    I'll install MacOS Sierra like many of you, but I won't update or upgrade, I want to do a 'Clean Install' on my iMac to the retina. There are several small, painful on ranging from the questions that no ONE at Apple was able to help with. I'm sped to start again and I hope after a month or two AFTER Sierra is released and immediate bugs will be crushed and then I can make the trip. Since Sierra is a new file system, I hope that everything will be good in the rim. This way my two hundred concerts (or almost) of music plays without hiccup and my huge photo library will play too nice!

    There are several "how to" out in WEB land, but honestly, each of them is a little confusing. I do not understand why Apple insists on not to put an accurate Concise Guide, step by step. My burlap as 1st Sergeant used to explain in the body when something needed to explain. We said, ' Let explain me it like Barney. Referring to Barney Fife. In other words, super easy. I was going to buy an eBook take control books Scholle McFarland. I wonder what any of you think of the great guru?

    Yes I use Time Machine. Yes, I have backed up Photos and iTunes separately. I'll do the same thing to my documents and email (not sure one).

    Appreciate some guidance.

    This isn't a bad guide...

    Just replace the name of 'El Capitan' with 'macOS Sierra.

    FWIW, the upgrade can not get rid of your "hard" problems, according to what they are.

  • Impossible to install MacOS Sierra

    Hey, I tried to clean install macOS Sierra. I downloaded the file from the app store, created a bootable USB key. Then I erased my drive hard and then tried to start. However I'm unable to install it. Sometimes with a sign even before X that I get to the installation option.

    Then I tried to restore from the internet, and which also failed.

    I have a Macbook Pro mid-2012 which came with the mountain lion.

    Please suggest what to do.

  • New Mac, same disk external DRIVE for the library; does not see the files

    I reconnected my iTunes library from a disk external DRIVE to my new computer, but iTunes does not recognize my files of the ALAC instead, he goes to the cloud and plays music from Apple things. How can I listen to my files? All the files are there, the library is intact; I changed the path in iTunes. Without result. He always plays with the cloud.

    You do not change the path in iTunes.  Who does as it says which is tell iTunes where media files [new] store. You change the path you launch iTunes by holding down the option/alt key, while the application starts and then choose when prompted the iTunes Library.itl file in the iTunes folder you included if all goes well on the hard disk external.  If everything you have on the outside are media files, then you better head for your old computer fast and get the rest of the library there.  It's the rest of these files in the iTunes folder that make up the other half of the 'library' iTunes needs.

  • WRT610N - disk external DRIVE for Xbox 360 and PS3

    I searched through the fourms and can't seem to find this information.  I'm looking for a suggestion on the Setup and the disk external DRIVE via the USB port on the back of the router you can listen to music and videos on my 360 or PS3.  I see that some people have managed to put it in place and I would like to know which external HARD drive that they use.

    I want my externall HDD to sleep, but I want that it to wake up when I go to play the music on my computer or 360 or PS3.  Please post what disk external HARD - that someone has found that works.  Or should I just go with a NAS connected on one of the router's ethernet ports?

    Any player should work.  I use a WD drives on my own, (although I share with other systems then the xbox).  Actions are implemented for UPnP.  The documentation should be sufficient to implement that.  Make sure the drive is formatted as an NTFS drive, or it is not possible.

    In addition, make sure you have the latest firmware (21 January 2009).

    Set up the drive (aka format)

    Create groups

    Create users

    Implement UPnP

    It should work.

    In record time, readers built into the firmware and the timeout when they timeout.  You would not be able to set the timeout on this.  I didn't know all the disks than that.  If you are REALLY interested in saving energy buy a USB solid state with no moving parts.  They turned off immediately after what they read/write.

    I hope this helps.
