OneTouch 300GB HDD


Ok, here is the problem:
I have an external 300BG Maxtor HDD, which has two types of connectors - USB2 and firewire. I want to use this drive in Linux (Fedora Core 2, FC2 ) but the drive does not get detected in FC2 if I plug it using firwire or USB2 even. Because firewire is experimental, I prefer to use with USB2.
How do I get USB2 to work? The following outputs might prove to be useful:

fdisk -l
Disk /dev/hda: 80.0 GB, 80000000000 bytes
16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 155009 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 = 516096 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 203 102280+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda2 204 152929 76973904 83 Linux
/dev/hda3 152930 155009 1048320 82 Linux swap

I've been searching google and trying out different solutions/suggestions but the drive doesn't seem to work. I think its the HDD itself thats not detectable.

First you need to make sure your usb devices are working right. I used this page to get mine working:
http://www.cs.sfu.ca/%7Eggbaker/personal/cf-linux

Then you should be able to mount it as normal. I found one thing odd about mounting my external drives though. When I use my flash reader I have to mount the cards with the partition number, sda1, but my external hard disk won't read that way; I have to give it the block device only, sda. Perhaps it's because I only have the single primary partition on it though. If your drive has multiple partitions, you may need the numbers as well.
