Fedora 8 cant detect Western Digital Passport drive


Hi,

Im just a linux newbie, I installed Fedora 8 on my Benq Joybook, but it doesnt detect my WD portable hard drive.

fdisk -l returns this:

Any ideas? Its been bugging more for more than a week now. I have posted in other forums but know one has an idea of what's the problem. Thanks,

Perhaps fedora 9 would recognize it?

You can also post to the fedora help forums (both the download for it and the link to help forum "get help")

Did you partition & format the external drive during installation? Assuming /dev/dm-0 & /dev/dm-1 are the external drive.

You mean if I formatted it to ext3? No, I did not format it during the installation because I also use it for my other laptop which has Vista. Would it be easier if I just format it to the linux file system? Would I still be able to access it on a Windows machine?

-----------------------------------------

I deleted a number of lines, it was pretty long. I hope I did not erase some important parts. It seems it detects the hard drive but Im unable to mount using sdb1, sda, or scsi, it says no device exists. I used dm-0 and it worked. It was saved in the fstab file but I couldnt see it in the mount point.

I did some research (https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source....15/+bug/23346), it says that I had to disable ehci_hcd. What do you think?
