Drobo Shows Up on Dash, But Won't Mount

On my latest restart, my Drobo shows up fine and looks healthy in the dashboard, but won’t mount to my mac. It’s connected Firewire 800. I’m running Disk Repair on it now, been runnng for about an hour, and it’s showing Updating boot support partitions for the volume as required.

I’ve got 2.21 TB used on it so it may run for awhile. Anyone else ever seen this problem before?

This happened to me once before. I opened Disk Utility and the Drobo partition showed up but was greyed out. I clicked on the partition and clicked mount and it then showed up on the desktop.

hi ive also heard about some problems using firewire and mac but have you tried a usb cable too?
