I have tried a lot of different things to get this hard drive to mount. The reason why I keep trying is because I know it did on feisty. I am pretty sure that the harddrive is formated to fat32. Nothing turned up when I ran dmesg | grep sda
and sudo fdisk -l
returns

Disk /dev/sda: 250.0 GB, 250000000000 bytes

Any ideas?

With it plugged in what's the output of lsusb, it looks like according to the output of fdisk -l you system isn't picking up the second disc.

Have you tried different usb ports maybe the one your trying to use is fried, or if your going through a usb hub try and connect it directly to one of the machines ports.

Well I'm not sure what it means, but lsusb gives
