http://ubuntuforums.org – Karmic 9.10 on a Acer 5920G laptop. External drives were fine not long ago, but recently they don't show up. When I plug one in, nothing happens. "lsusb" output shows that it's plugged in and recognised: Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 002 Device 025: ID 0bc2:3300 Seagate RSS LLC Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bu (Hardware)
