I have to admit that I have not been following this thread so forgive me 
if I repeat something which has already been suggested and tried.

As root, in a terminal, have you done-

fdisk -l

and what drives show up? and does the external HDD show up as /dev/sdcX?

And if it does have you tried to mount it manually with-

mount -t ext4 /dev/sdcX /media/xxxxx

where sdcX is the external and /media/xxxx is a sub-directory which you 
may have to first create yourself in the /mount directory?


PS It would be great if you did not top post when replying to posts 
here. Thanks.
