Hey, I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 and have an external hard drive. However, I cannot view the external hard drive when in Ubuntu, do I need to do something to the hard drive so that I can access the files?

You need to mount it. It should mount automatically.

Does it appear in your places menu.

Occasionally, I have an external appear in Computer in the Places menu and not in the menu itself. Try looking in there.

No, it does not even appear in either of these locations... The external works fine in windows though so it's not a hardware fault.

I ran a disc check on it, and now it's working... should have tried that first, sorry for the stupid question.

No questions are stupid unless the are intended to be.:P
