Re: Invisible folders
did you umnount, or eject the drive before removing it, or did you just yank the cable out?
do this both on your Ubuntu and your Apple device, reboot both and see if that helped
inproperly removing a drive can confuse the OS about the drive's status, and make it difficult to mount it again
also some operating systems lock the drive. if the OS doesn't get the chance to release the drive before disconnecting, other devices can't acces it.
bottom line: always properly software-eject the drive before disconnecting, especially when using an external drive between more than one computer.
