What distro are you running? What is the output of "fdisk -l"?

What do you mean "nothing"? No error messages? No status messages? Any output at all?

On Kubuntu you'll probably need to run "sudo fdisk -l"

Would you please copy and paste the text from your terminal, including the command you ran and the output, into code tags in your posts? Your responses so far have not been very helpful, we need more details.

For example, here is the output of "sudo fdisk -l" on Kubuntu 12.04 on my VM:

Code:
user@kubuntu:~$ sudo fdisk -l
[sudo] password for user: 

Disk /dev/sda: 25.9 GB, 25935478784 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 3153 cylinders, total 50655232 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x0000bc86

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *        2048    46460927    23229440   83  Linux
/dev/sda2        46462974    50653183     2095105    5  Extended
/dev/sda5        46462976    50653183     2095104   82  Linux swap / Solaris
Since this is a VM, it only has the 26 GB drive that I allocated it. Yours should look similar without the external drive plugged in. With the external drive plugged in it should have another entry, probably /dev/sdb.
