Okay, good, that clarifies the internal drive.

Aha! So you have sdc and sdd. How come they are not listed in the output
of the mount command you posted above earlier? If that were missed
somehow, can you post them now? If the mount command output was indeed
completely pasted above, then it might that the drives were not mounted
at that time.

Another option, what is the output of the following commands?
$> sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdd
$> sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdc

while the external drives are connected and are called sdd and sdc
devices by your system (change accordingly)?
