Device Notifier not listing 2nd external usb drive
kde 4.3.4 kernel 188.8.131.52-smp
Have Seagate 500GB (fuseblk) external usb drive that gets listed in the "Devices recently plugged in, pop-up panel" but a Verbatim 1.5TB does not. I have to mount it manually as ntfs volume.
bash-3.1# mount /dev/sdd1 /verbatim
Thanks again willysr for your dmesg
My dmesg loooks ok (see below) and I can mount the verbatim disk manually.
It is the fact that it is not listed in the "Devices recently plugged in, pop-up panel" that started this enquiry (its not a show stopper)
The other Seagate external usb disk is listed in popup and then can be opened in Filemanager Dolphin by clicking on it.
So I will investigate further and will report back.
Had to move on - so got the hammer out.
Used gparted to split 1.5TB disk thinking that maybe rewriting drive info to drive might enable hal (hard abstract layer) to pick it up. ie size & uuid info.
hald now gets info from samsung drive (verbatim label)
and I'm a happy camper.
Have not pursued a problem like this for quite a while but realize that I did not find the exact answer to original problem.
I effected a solution and that suffices for me and I can only surmise that as it was a brand new external hard drive maybe the particular info hal requires was not on disk???
Anyway, thanks for all the help.
