Angry external hardrive?

Ok I have a mac os x laptop with an external hardrive that is not wireless.
In order to access the hardrive I have to manually open my network, go through a long list of files and find the hardrive. I figured that this was necessary, but after 2 years, I'm starting to get annoyed, and so is my dad, who has to open up external files. Is there a way to get external files/hardrives to be on your desktop at login? I've heard that automator can do workflows like this, can someone show me what to do?
thanks
-Henry

Default Re: external hardrive?

I don't use macs very much. But...From what I have read on other forums, and by searching google, I found that you should be able to click on the finder.

Check out this link. It has a screen shot of the preferences list.

Make sure that HDD has a check mark next to it.

Hope this helps, if you need more help. post and we will help you the best we can.

Cheers! and welcome to the forum!
