Ubuntu @ December 24, 2012   Views:0

hello , I have a external hard drive I use to have with my window but when I plug my hard drive in my computer Ubuntu won t open it and I can not find it anywhere, can someone help , thank you

--------------Solutions-------------

do you still have a windows computer around?
if yes:
-plug the drive in there
-does it work ok there?
-sign off the drive with "safely remove device" from the system tray (near the clock)
-when windows says it's safe to remove, unplug the drive.
-now plug into ubuntu pc
-does it work now?
