[ubuntu] External Harddrive not mountingview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – My external harddrive is refusing to mount. The power light is coming on. It's not making any strange noises. It's a few months old and has only been used once to do a full back up. It has not been turned on since. Now it's refusing to show up when I plug it in and a strange drive called 'boot' has appeared from nowhere. Anyone know what I can do? (Hardware)
