From Lightroom cannot edit in PS

Using Mac Book Pro Catalina 10.15.7, LR & PS 2021 and a Seagate external storage drive. I am now unable to edit in PS from Lightroom. I was able to do so until today. Any help would be appreciated.

What does ‘I am unable’ mean exactly? What does (not) happen when you try? If the ‘Edit in’ menus are dimmed, then most likely your external drive is not mounted. Lightroom needs to original to send it to Photoshop. It can’t use smart previews for that.
