I just bought a USB device adn when I plug it in I can't see it.

Can anyone tell me how to mount it? I expected it to register like my memory stick.

I tried the Syste mTools > Disk Manager and Hardware Browser.


Thanks,

Now I will jump in late.

Has this drive ever worked on Linux?

What does tail show for /var/log/messages when you plug the drive into the USB port.

  # tail -f /var/log/messages

You should see something like.

Now the next question is your HAL daemon running?
  service --status-all |grep hald
---

I ask this as my hald is stopped and I cannot automount my USB HD or stick.
