Still can't see it eithre on the desktop or within Nautilus.
Anyone got any ideas how I can get it to appear?

In the chain of problem diagnosis it makes sense to use dmesg first
because this is the first place the system reports the discovery of the
device. Running dmesg takes no more or less time than fdisk, and could
be more reliable - see below.

disks, you will just get _more_ output once you have a USB disk
