USB drive, once it worked, now it doesn't.

I've got a 250GB external USB drive.

Also, a brand new load of Ubuntu 7.04.

for the first couple of days, the external drive would show up when I
plugged the device in... (Icon appear on desktop as if by magic... )  

then one day I accidentally removed the drive without ejecting it

Ever since, when I plug in the USB drive, the system recognizes that a
new device has shown up, I can manually mount /dev/sdb1 and read the
data, but no automagic mounting.

I really would like the magic back.  

Any ideas?
