Hello,

I have just bought a Seagate 1.5 TB HDD which I put it an Xcraft External Hard drive case. I had some troubles getting it work format initially so I used Vista to format the drive to NTFS as I'm not good enough with the command line to do it properly in Ubuntu.

Anyway I go the drive to format under Vista, moved my files from my old HDD over and it was working fine. I then decided to ditch windows and go back to ubuntu. But now I can't find out how to mount the drive properly. I have read the forums but have been unable to find out what I need to do, if someone could help me get this mounted it would be great

(I am using a Dell M1530 running Ubuntu Hardy)
