Finding/Mounting USB HDD

Fairly simple - having problems picking up a hard drive's partitions to where I can mount them.  If I unplug/plug it back in, I see in /var/log/messages:

May 14 20:15:08 localhost kernel: [4384420.748275] usb 1-4: new high-speed USB device number 2 using ehci_hcd
May 14 20:18:39 localhost kernel: [4384631.481157] usb 1-4: USB disconnect, device number 2
May 14 20:18:56 localhost kernel: [4384648.201573] usb 1-4: new high-speed USB device number 3 using ehci_hcd

Output of lsusb

Searched by UUID, just one of the steps I tinkered with from the Wiki

and then checked fdisk -l and parted, no dice.

(parted) print all
Model: ATA ST9320423AS (scsi)

12      53.2GB  320GB   267GB   logical   ext4

I just don't seem to see any partitions/the device.  It has ext4 filesystems, and if I hook this into the fiancee's Easy Peasy netbook (Ubuntu derivative) , it does pick up and automount.  Happy to post any other information that'd be helpful, just let me know, kind of banging my head on the wall.

Thanks!

Re: Finding/Mounting USB HDD

I hope this doesn't sound to trivial ... but did you just look in the /dev/ directory for anything new after it was plugged in?

I wouldn't expect many of the steps you tried to show it if it wasn't mounted.  But even unmounted it will be in /dev/  Most likely as sdbX

Nope, I appreciate the response, thanks

Unfortunately, not so much seeing it, had checked dev but didn't think to post it.

Re: Finding/Mounting USB HDD

Well, that is unfortunate.

Can you post the output of lsusb -vs 1:     when you have the drive attached?

Re: Finding/Mounting USB HDD

So, did anybody come up with an answer?

I am having exactly the same trouble.

Re: Finding/Mounting USB HDD

Do you use a login manager? If not, check your ~/.xinitrc and make sure you have ck-launch-session before dbus-launch (if you use Openbox), or --with-ck-launch at the end (for Xfce). Better yet, visit the wiki page if you use some other DE/WM and carefully read it from the top. Twice.

I have made a personal commitment not to reply in topics that start with a lowercase letter. Proper grammar and punctuation is a sign of respect, and if you do not show any, you will NOT receive any help (at least not from me).
