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.
Seagate has unveiled hard drives specifically designed for tablet computers, promising “unmatched price-performance storage”, granting tablets vastly improved storage capacities, but presumably means you’ll need to treat your hard-drive enabled tablet a touch more carefully than you probably already do.
the other day i was installing quantal for my neighbor, and i was checking the smart data on the drives, since it was a new build, and the gnome-disks and it only showed 1 of the 2 dvd drives
they are both the same model and since gsmartcontrol showed both.
I am trying to help out a friend with an odd issue. He has two external hard drives he was using as storage on a I-Mac. He had several terabytes of information on each drive, then one day the drives didn't show up on his mac.
