Weird External HDD Issue In Mint 7/Ubuntu 9.04

Postby cappymint on Mon May 11, 2009 8:55 am

okay i just upgraded from mint 6 to Mint 7 RC1, and im having a weird issue with my external hard drives. And just to note i was having the exact same issue in Ubuntu 9.04.

My issue is that when the computer boots into mint 7, it does not recognize my external drives at all. I go to Computer and all it lists is filesystem and my bluray drive. Usually it shows the devices there unmounted, but it wont. Now heres where it gets a little wierd. If i unplug the USB cabble of one of the drives, and then plug it back in, it will then detect and auto mount BOTH drives.

Its quite anoying. Had no problem in mint 6, but it is a problem in both Ubuntu 9.04 and Mint 7.

Anyone have any ideas what the problem could be?

Thanks in advance

Don't bump so fast
The only reason I see this is that I opened a lot of tabs with unanswered posts yesterday - tosy you would have passed unnoticed
I'll put a link to this in the bug topic, it may be a bug

To solve this you have to tell us more facts.
We also need to know a bit about all your hardware.
Run " lspci " in a terminal and post here (to avoid misunderstanding - the first character is a minor L and you copy by marking with the mouse and then right click)
Some wifi and possibly built in sound can be connected to USB even if they are internal - if you suspect you have one of these run " lsusb " in a terminal.
Also tell us if this is using mint4win or not, quite important
This is a standard answer so it may not be fully applicable to your situation

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
