[ubuntu] External Sata Drive issues (Ubuntu 10.10)

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I currently am using Ubuntu 10.10 in a septa-boot arrangement (Windows 7, Ubuntu 10.10, Solaris, Mint, Backtrack 5 R1, Mac OS X 10.6, Suse) on a Toshiba Satellite L305-S5933. Today I connected a hard drive, via a USB-to-Sata cable, to my laptop to back up some files from my Laptop (I've done this countless times before with no issue). I moved the files over to the drive and everything looked fine. I played one of the MP3 files (a lecture I recorded from college) from the drive and after I closed VLC, the screen flashed. Odd but nothing seemed out of order. I opened the Hard Drive via Ubun (Hardware)
