I have two USB3 WD external hard drives. They are connected to individual USB3 ports. If I boot Mint 14 (this happens in both Cinnamon and KDE) with the drives turned off then the drives are detected and mounted when I turn them on. However if I boot with the drives turned on then they aren't detected and not mounted. They don't show up in fdisk. Turning them off, waiting for a few seconds, then turning them back on doesn't help either.
Does anyone have any pointers that might help me troubleshoot this weirdness?
Thanks for reading.
