help me Mount Usb/Ide external controller

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 I have a USB/IDE External HDD; Nothing happens when I Plug it in the usb slot. lsusb recognizes it as
Bus 008 Device 003: ID 067b:2307 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2307 USB-ATAPI4 Bridge
I'm not sure if this will help but it says on the back...
model L40/40GB
Serial No: 1Q1L40A
Universal Buslink corp.
the front says Buslink tm USB Hard Drive..

I wasn't too sure how to get it to activate. so if I could get some help it would be very much appreciated

Thanks in advance ^_^

Nimbus is a Latin word meaning cloud or rain storm.
Nimbus (cloud computing)

I am more in weather than computing languages
but Hello !

1. Are the neccessary drivers loaded ?
2. Which drivers are needed ?
modprobe -l | grep -E 'pl|usb'
For my adaptor I would need

and you would perhaps need
/dma/pl330.ko . In my distro there is no pl330.ko but inside the kernel source .
