    Seagate - FreeAgent GoFlex Desk 3TB External USB 2.0/3.0 Hard Drive

    On my Asus G73JW ROG-A3B7M

    I have a USB 3.0 slot and this drive and it doesn't show up. When I plug it in the light turns on so it is getting power in Ubuntu.

    I know the drive works because if I boot into Windows 7 it shows up.

    Here is the drive - http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Seagate+...ci_sku=1361508

    Well with no help from any of you crazy ubuntu care bears I got it working.

    For anyone else that is stuck like I was here you go for free like Adam Sandler in Bed time stories.

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
    find and change to

    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash pci=nomsi"
    Reboot and plug in your device.

    Confirmed this works in Fedora as well by editing the grub.conf.
