I use LMDE daily without any issues .... except those I cause.
Maybe someone can help me out of a self created problem I create from time to time.
I use a generic USB hard drive with 2 USB connectors - 1 for data, 1 for power. If I use only the data cable (forget to plug in the power cable) the drive will automatically mount and work perfectly. Without the power cable, however, the drive will sometimes just suddenly die (shut down). While this causes no obvious problem with the OS, I'm unable to get the USB drive to remount without a reboot. Is there something I can do manually that will allow the drive to remount without restarting the OS?
