I don't have any ideas for you, but I can say my Kobo Glo mounts fine on OS X 10.8.2. Any FAT-formatted disk should mount with no problems on a Mac. Try selecting the volume and select "Verify Disk" under the first aid tab in Disk Utility.

You could try a factory reset. Then connect it to the Mac book air first.

I see you're using the cable that came with it. Have you tried a different cable? Could be something small wrong with the cable that won't let it communicate properly. USB cable issues in general aren't uncommon.

Make sure you do it on the Kobo ereader volume, not the disk holding it.

As a point of comparison, I have a Macbook Air (2011) running 10.7.4 and I just bought a new Glo today. Machine recognized it fine for setup & subsequent sideloading.

I thought I had read somewhere of problems with the new Airs and USB 3.

Edit: The newest Calibre recognizes it too.

Are you plugging the ebook directly into the Mac, or into a USB hub that is connected to the Mac?
