Sorry should have thought this through first.

What file system is on the hard drive. If it is NTFS that will be the problem.

ntfs yes

10.4.1 (Tiger) will read NTFS so you should see the files. Does the external drive have other files that are visible?

You could try installing MacFuse but I don't think this will necessarily help.
