How do you say you can't use it in Ubuntu?

Plug it in and run "sudo fdisk -l" from the terminal and let's see if it is detected.

Or open the GUI Disk utility and see it the drive is there.

Welcome to the Ubuntu Forums :-)

How do you want to use it?

Please try some commands from a terminal window (use the hotkey combination ctrl + alt + t )

sudo fdisk -lu
sudo parted -l
ls -l /media

Copy and paste each command line into the terminal window and press the Enter key to run it.

Copy and paste the output text from each command into a 'reply editing window', 'go advanced', mark the text and click on the # icon just above the window to put it within code tags.
