External USB HDD not mounting




Hi all

When I tried to connect my USB 2.0 External HDD to PC running RedLinux 9. I ended up getting the following message. Can Any one help me?


[root@localhost root]# tail -n 11 /var/log/messages

If your connecting the drive through an external hub, I'd try connecting directly to your box. Some devices simply won't work when connected through a hub. I had a similar problem with both my scanner and my usb hard drive until I connected directly to the box.
