http://ubuntuforums.org – Dear Ubuntu people, External Hard drive Case: ICY Box 1B-362 Series Hard Disk model: ST31000333AS Ubuntu Version: 9.10 Motherboard model: Asus P5Q3 Problem Description: When I plug the drive into the eSATA interface of my motherboard, Ubuntu does not recognize my drive as a new plug and play device. It is only recognized only if the drive is plugged during booting, as a regular internal drive. How can I make Ubuntu see my external drive as a plug and play device? (Hardware)
