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
