HardDrive not detected on plugin


Hello all,

I am using Debian Wheezy 7.0.1 64 bit. Whenever i plugin my External HDD. Nothing shows up or no notification. Even `fdisk -l` wont show my drive. But when i reboot after pluging in my HDD. HDD works perfectly.

Is there any way to get my HDD working at the time i plug it in? WIthout restarting?

Try checking dmesg when you plug it in; might give a clue

I've seen errors like that on an embedded Linux device before, ended up adding a powered USB hub between the computer and the hard drive and it fixed the problem. I'm still not sure what the underlying cause was.

External hard drives not visible when reboot from windows to debian

Hello all,

I have configured fstab via UUID. And it works great. Now below is the scenario when problems occurs.

BOOT -> Debian -> OK (Hard Drive works Perfectly)
BOOT -> Windows - > (Reboot) -> Debian -> WRONG (No Harddrives detected. Not even in fdisk -l)
BOOT -> Windows -> (Shutdown) -> Boot -> Debian -> OK

Any ideas?
Thanks.

Just for grins and giggles, could you post the output of fdisk -l?

Also, after doing each boot to Debian in the sequence listed above, you might take a look at /var/log/messages in Debian to see if any differences stand out.

It doesn't seem relevant if you are not even seeing the drives in fdisk -l, but, if those drives are formatted NTFS, Debian doesn't include NTFS drivers by default, because Debian is aggressively free. However, they are available.
