I have 2 usb hard drives sitting collecting dust because I cannot figure
out how to read and write to them.  1 is 80 gig seagate, and the other
is 160 gig fantom.  Both HAVE worked on ubuntu in the past, from 5.x
right up through gutsy.  now, I cant get either one to work.  They both
seem to mount, as I get an entry in "places".  But, when you click on
one of them the taskbar becomes unresponsive, non clickable, you need to
reboot to get it back.  This install is about a month old, and updated.

does anyone use a usb drive, and does it work?


how does hardy mount usb drives by default?


where does hardy mount usb drives?  (its not in /media   already looked
there)



USB drives use to automount and an icon would show on the desktop, why
was this removed?


Thanks.
