external hard disk doesn't mount(is not recognized)

Bug #368164 reported by mkip222 on 2009-04-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Just updated to Jaunty, and before that my external NTFS USB hdd worked fine. It worked fine a day after the update, but now it doesn't mount at all. It doesn't even show up in the /media directory.

Does the drive work after you unplug and replug the usb cable?

If so, please add usb_storage on a new line in /etc/modules. If this fixes the issue then this is a duplicate of bug 344406. If not I will convert this to a question for more support and troubleshooting before it is actually identified as a bug.

Can you see the drive if you go to computer:/// in Nautilus? (Places -> Computer)?
Are you able to mount it manually, using the command line?
