Upon plugging in the external drive the icon to view the file does not automatically show up. A little help please?

Running Ubuntu netbook remix 10.10

I was able to get it to read on a windows machine and restarted a couple of times in windows and now it works! Have no clue why...

I had a Seagate Freeagent External Drive that worked great until it quit. I used it in Windows Vista and XP and Ubuntu 10.04 and iMac OS 10 and never did figure out why it died. I hope yours lasts.

I have had problems with Seagate all together... usually the drives that are 750gb or bigger

I have had this problem also with my seagate 500 GB HHD.... the only thing that worked is by upgrading to ubuntu 11.4 BETA 2. So my advice is to hold out a couple more days for the official release.
