Cant access external media help

Hello, I have an external hard drive(usb0) That I cannot access. If I do Desktop -> administration -> disks I can access it, but im looking to be able to go to it from the places menu. Can anyone tell me what to do please? Any help is appreciated.

By the way, I'm running debian etch

Sorry for posting again, but I feel I should post the error I get.
"The folder contents could not be displayed. You do not have the permissions necessary to display "usb0""
