    ubuntu linux does not recognize hard drive

    Hello,
    I am having issues with Ubuntu recognizing my other hdd. I can access the master and external but not the slave. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Open a terminal and post the outputs of these commands, running one line at a time.

    Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    sudo blkid
    cat /etc/fstab
    df -h
    In the world of Linux, who needs Windows and Gates...

    Got most of my golden beans at an auction on eBay (with a couple of free drinks).
