Hi slackprogrammer and welcome to LQ.

Did you try to mount it manually?

Plug it in, wait 30 seconds tht it be ready, then type in a terminal:
Code:
cat /proc/partitions
and for instance if you find a partition on it named /dev/sdb1, just type as root:
Code:
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt
to mount it on /mnt.

Thanks Didier Spaier for your answer. Yes, I have mounted it manually, but it responded nothing and can not end.After launching cairo-dock, I plug my USB External HardDrive, it shows:

bash-4.2# ls -l /dev/sdb*
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 16 Nov 18 23:08 /dev/sdb
brw------- 1 root root 8, 17 Nov 18 23:08 /dev/sdb1
brw------- 1 root root 8, 18 Nov 18 23:08 /dev/sdb2
brw------- 1 root root 8, 19 Nov 18 23:08 /dev/sdb3
brw------- 1 root root 8, 20 Nov 18 23:08 /dev/sdb4
brw------- 1 root root 8, 21 Nov 18 23:08 /dev/sdb5
and cannot mount it manually as root user.Whereas it shows like this before launching the cairo-dock.

brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 20 Nov 18 21:52 /dev/sdb5
then I don't know why this happens.

It might get another dev entry

Thanks! Before launching the cairo-dock, it shows:

then I run cairo-dock, it shows:

hi slackprogrammer, can you see the following message in dmesg aswell?

xhci_hcd 0000:00:14.0: xHCI xhci_drop_endpoint called
> with disabled ep ffff8801fd2b0140

if so, you might have hit the USB kernel bug.
http://marc.info/?l=linux-usb&m=138005811528076&w=2


either wait untill this patch has been backported to 3.10.x and pat has included this.
or build a newer kernel 3.12
