[SOLVED] Cannot mount USB external hard drive

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, *skip to bold* I just bought a Toshiba external hard drive to back up my computer. I plugged it in and it didn't appear on the desktop. I restarted the computer and still no go. I tried 'sudo fdisk -l' to find the location but it isn't showing up. What would be the next step here? I am pretty new to linux. Additional details: The hard drive is NOT plugged in. I thought it was because the light was on but the plug wasn't in completely. It works now. Thanks. (Hardware)
