View Full Version : [ubuntu] External HDD fails to mount unless unplugged and reconnected?

February 11th, 2012, 12:49 PM
I've got a media centre pc with an external HDD attached where I store all of my movies and other bits of media. this stays connected to the PC all the time via USB.*

In the last week or so the HDD appears to fail to mount in Ubuntu every time I boot the machine and the only way to rectify it is to unplug the USB or power once of twice and then Ubuntu seems to pick up that the drive is there and mounts it.*

Any ideas why it's not now automatically mounting when the machine boots?
