Hi,

Anything in the logfiles? Maybe the disk was not recognized for whatever reason.

Hope this helps.

Pl. try this #cat /etc/partitions with out plug in external usb device and same cmd try after plug in usb device check the difference and then you will find the usb device name
#mount /dev/<usb devices name like hdb1/hdc1 or sdb1/sdc1 /mnt/usb

hope this will help you to mount the external usb devices

RHEL 5 should generally automatically mount the device for you.

Plug in the USB device and post the output of:

# mount

It might be hardware...

Have you opened the external HDD box and checked the that all the connections are in order, and that the USB cable is properly seated at both its ends? Can you hear the HDD spin up?
