Hi All, In the process of updates, grades, and the installation of a new
DVD burner. My Ubuntu 11.04 can't see my 2 gig usb drive im not sure when
this happened. I guess there must be a permission problem but I don't know
what to do about it. I ran into this a couple years ago and got help here
but I can't remember what I did about it. Anybody got a good link handy for
help? I'll be Googleing for help. Doug

When you say "can't see", do you mean it doesn't mount it at all?

Been thinking about this, I had changed the boot order in the Bios to try to boot from a thumb drive. Didn't get it to work so I put the bios back to original. The Hard 2 gig drive does not show up in computer folder at all. I have a couple other usb drives and they show up. They open as empty. Not sure but I think there are files on them. The big drive must not be mounted. As it does not show up any place except in the bios. Doug

OK here is what I am getting from a terminal entry
douglasdoug@ubuntuDoug:~$ sudo blkid -c /dev/null
[sudo] password for douglasdoug:
/dev/sda1: UUID="88a2c848-eb4f-43fa-947e-92aa67e09ec7" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sda5: UUID="c8cf4480-e22d-43f5-81ca-e7ec1bbd053f" TYPE="swap"

/dev/sdi1: UUID="8A82-72E5" TYPE="vfat"

AS best I can tell sdh1 and sdi1 are my 150g usb drive and a 250 g usb drive
I don't see my 2 terabite free agent Seagate drive at all.
I was calling the 2 terabite drive a 2 gig drive in my last post old habit I guess. Does this tell anyone anything about my problem or wher i might go from here?? Doug
