11.10 External Hard Drives Not Detected

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I am a novice user who upgraded to 11.10. In my previous version of Ubuntu, icons of my external drives(2) were visible and I could mount and navigate these drives. I cannot locate my external hard drives with 11.10. I have searched the questions with similar titles and have not found a solution. The command: sudo fdisk -l does list both external hard drives. How do I get icons of these drives to appear in my Home Folder? i want to be able to navigate my external hard drive files by clicking on the icons and not using the terminal for navigation. Thanks (HowTos)
