I upgraded to Lucid Lynx via Update Manager seemingly without a glitch. Then, I realised the system doesn't recognize the external hard drive- a Seagate Expansion USB 2.0 1TB Hard Drive. Is there some command line functions I can cut and paste to get to the contents of the drive? Or is there a known bug and I shall need to wait for a fix?

Doesn't recognize at all or just doesn't auto mount it?

If you connect the hdd and run

sudo fdisk -l

what does it say?
