I've been scratching me head over this for a while now and the problem seems that no matter what I do, I can't get Linux to mount that drive. I thought it was a problem with Linux, but I happened to think it might be with the file structure on the drive itself. At some point in the past, I think I formated the drive, thus erasing the autorun file. I had no problems in windows, I think because it is a FAT32 drive, but in Linux, I'm thinking the drive needs that file. It seems to be the only reason I can think of why Linux won't mount it and windows does.
Actually I needed more storage space anyway, so I bought a terabite external drive and have transferred my movies, TV shows and all my data files onto it. This worked out just fine as Linux does recognize the TB drive. So, I think I need to somehow locate an autorun file for the Seagate and copy it onto the drive through windows. I'm not sure if that will solve my issue or not, but it is worth a try. Thoughts?
