What drive is it? (Flash disk, USB HDD?)
Plug it into the USB port and post the output of:

lsusb
...at a terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal)

Thanks for this,

I tried both USBs and flash disks- none of them worked. The output to lsusb is:

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

What else should I do next?

This output means that Ubuntu doesn't see your USB drives (you typed it with them plugged in, right?)

Please type
lsmod in a Terminal and post the output here.

That's very strange, usbcore is showing up fine...

I actually forgot to add this to the last post, but I'd also like to see your /etc/fstab file.
