External HD problems

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
I have an 2TB Iomega hard drive, which my laptop - running OS 10.5 - has no problem with. But plugged into my iMac, on 10.6, it doesn't mount on the desktop and doesn't show up in disk utility.
Any suggestions?

Hi Chortler,
Welcome to the forums.
Do other devices show up when plugged in? Have you tried different ports/types of ports? Have you tried different cables? Dose it show up in System Profiler? Dose it show up on other 10.6 computers? Is this a self powered drive? Are there other devices plugged into the computer? if so dose removing those device help?
Have you tried a SMC reset and or NVRAM reset?
If you boot to the install disk, dose the disk show up in system profiler.
