Unable to see an external USB HDD

Running dual boot SuSE 10.0 and Win XP.

When I open "My computer" (SuSE), I can`t see the external HDD. However, if I look in /media from terminal, it shows as "DTK_external_drive".

How can I "see it" in My computer ?

Many thanks

Understood.... I should have been more explicit. Within the (konqueror) media/ window on "My Computer", there is an icon for each of the following: DVD, hda1, hda5 and hda7.

The external hdd is visible in /media. Is there a way for the external hdd to be visible in the same window as the other drives ?

I have the same problem with FC6 (2.6.18-1.2798.fc6). I have a 160gig seagate usb that doesn't show anywhere. In FC5 I had no problem.
