I have had my drive working for ages, but recently it has stopped showing up in fdisk -l. dmesg shows some detection but I think it's something to do with systemd, which I switched over to recently coinciding with this.
dmesg on plugging drive in:
[393067.614072] usb 2-2: new high-speed USB device number 5 using ehci_hcd [393412.238224] usb 2-2: USB disconnect, device number 5 [393428.780693] usb 1-6: new high-speed USB device number 10 using ehci_hcd
Also systemctl output:

ACTIVE = The high-level unit activation state, i.e. generalization of SUB. SUB = The low-level unit activation state, values depend on unit type. 95 loaded units listed. Pass --all to see loaded but inactive units, too. To show all installed unit files use 'systemctl list-unit-files'.
Drive has always been NTFS and no issues, so not sure what's going on. I also just plugged it into my Win 7 laptop and it was detected and I'm reading/writing to it. Appreciate any help!
Edit: I also used it just fine in my Win7 dual boot on same computer.

Had you updated the kernel and not rebooted?
Yeah it is working now, it may have been a reboot Thanks!
