View Full Version : [ubuntu] External USB HD no longer recognized by PC

I've used this external usb hd for awhile and it always worked. Now it's not recognized by my PC (10.04 Lucid). I usually plug it in and turn it on, then it pops up in Ubuntu. Now it doesn't even show up in Gparted. I'm baffled.

Well is it turning on? Does it work on any other PCs? Does it make a bad noise when on? Does it work if you plug it into the pc directly (IDE or SATA)? Try some standard trouble shooting then we can find the problem.
