i've got a similar problem with a 500gb external drive (seagate
barracuda) in an ACOMDATA enclosure.  my workaround it to not hotplug
the drive.  seems if i have it plugged in and turned on at power on or
when resuming from hibernate it gets mounted.

here's an almost 2yr old bug which seems relevant:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/57127

here's my syslog:
