I am having the same problem. When I open disk utility, it sees it, but I cannot access it. Anyone figure this out as of yet?

Found it! Open File Manager, plug in your External Hard Drive and you've got it all right there. Good luck!

Can any 1 correct me if i'm wrong.
Kindly direct me to the correct method of opening the harddisk.

I gave up on using ubuntu 10.04 netbook I just waited for 10.10 to come out my harddrive is working now. You should just upgrade to the newest release.
