External hard drive greyed out in disk utility

I"ve acquired a Drobo attached to my Imac and recently the icon has greyed out on the desktop and in the finder. When you attempt and open up it nothing happens- no error, nothing. Finder simply wont look at it. I"ve downloaded route finder and that can see it no problem. I deserve to also drag a folder shortcut from pathfinder to the mac finder and also I can gain into the drive that means...has anyone experinced this before? Even better- wnyone understand just how to deal with it? Many thanks!

Hi Ant, Is it greyed out in disk utility? If you dont recognize exactly how to access this, go right into applications, utilities then disk utility, and see if its greyed out dvery own the left of there. And also have you tried unmounting the drive and also then remounting it? im certain you will have actually but believed i would cite it
