External ntfs HD not mounted
I've just installed 8.10 (fresh install), and have problems mounting my external HD. In 7.10, I just pluged it in, and it was mounted right away. In 8.10 when I plug it in, the 'active' light on the HD stays on, and it makes not-so-comfortable sounds every now and then.
lsusb give me this result:
The drive is seen as Device 008.

sudo fdisk -l dosen't show the drive at all.
I thought about force mounting it, but how do I do that, when I can't see the 'name' (sdb1 or something)?
Otherwise the usb connections works fine (tried with a usb pen - no problems).
The HD works fine in windows, and I made sure to safely remove it, in order not to damage the NTFS journal
