USB hard drive is not recognized.
My Thinkpad T510 laptop can't see or recognize my USB 1.5 TB Toshiba hard drive. It worked fine till yesterday. I have Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows 7 installed on different partitions, and even Windows 7 can't see the drive. Strange thing is, that it works with 3 of my other computers at home. One of them running Windows 7, one Ubuntu and one Lubuntu. You just plug it in and it works. I wasn't doing nothing special like updating or installing something when it happend. Tried to run lsusb, fdisk -l and there is no sign that drive is connected even when it is. Disc utility or Gparted can't see it either. I changed the name and UUID, no help. I can't format it because I dont have such a big backup drive and it is almost full. Tried all usb ports. I don't understand how its possible that it works with other computers exept mine. Thank you for any ideas or help.
Update: I tried different usb drive and usb stick and they work fine with my computer. Still can't see my Toshiba drive though.
