Sometimes Ubuntu doesn't connect to my external USB drive

With Ubuntu 10.10 running and the external drive connected to my USB
port, I start the drive (”Power On”), but nothing more happens.
What can I do to force Ubuntu to connect to the drive, except at least
logging out and then login again?

This problem does not happen very often, maybe once out of 100 or so,
but still I want to know what I can do to manually ”kick-start” the
whole thing.

Kind regards
