External Hard Drive Won't Mount on Karmic, Macbook 2,1 Again!
Earlier this year I encountered a problem with my external hard drive; it would not mount automatically and I kept getting an error message. Last time I was able to fix it by typing in the terminal 'sudo fsck /dev/sdb2'. Once again it's not mounting automatically and I'm not even getting the error message. I can't format the drive because I have important data on it. The drive is 1TB Select USB 2.0 Desktop Hard Drive
Also, I plugged in the drive, typed the command "sudo fdisk -l" in the terminal, and received the following:
WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sda'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.

I have no clue what's wrong with it now. I've tried to fix it the same way that I did last time, but it's not working.
I've been researching through forums and Google searches, but I haven't come across anything helpful yet.
Thank you for your help!
