That should be ok. What error do you get when you try to mount it?

Can you post the output from running "fdisk -l" as root.

It doesn't look like Mandrake is seeing the usb device.

Do you have the usb mass storage modules loaded? What do you get from running "lsmod"?

Is there any sign of it connecting in the dmesg output? Can you post the output from:
dmesg | grep -E "usb|sd"

You missed a quote in the grep command.

Try disconnecting the device, loading the usb mass storage module with:
modprobe usb-storage

If that works then reconnect the device and post the output from:
dmesg | tail

It looks like there is a problem with the way it is connecting. Have you got more than one usb controller?

Can you post the output from:
lspci
lsusb -v

Hmmm "error -110"
I had such trouble with this, trying to use a laCie USB drive: in the end I used its firewire alternative connection, and this works very well.

However, this post

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/history/343895

Recommends that you add acpi=noirq to your boot arguements. Perhaps you should try this.
