I recently bought a Western Digital External Harddisk of 500 gb . When i connect it Ubuntu doenst seem to recognize it ... Anyone had similar experiances ..
A bit more information would be help full.
If the drive ain't partitioned it wont show up as a drive since there is nothing to show. To partition the drive i would recommend install "gparted" and then either use the help file or do a quick google search for partitioning with gparted.
I dont know how but I now have been able to see my WD harddisk in Ubuntu now... I doubt it should be due to the latest updates my ubuntu had undergone..
