LVM not showing contents USB drives after reboot

I have installed xubuntu on a LVM system. Added an external USB drive. Files were on the external USB drive and could be found.
I had to reboot my system and now the data on the external USB drive can not be found. (Data is present on the USB drive!)

Do I have to mount or change the fstab file? Or something different?

Help is appreciated. gGuzz.

new install but still no usb drive

I have made a new install (not using LVM), ubuntu server with xfce desktop.

Attached usb drive (fat). But these are not recognized.
fdisk -l shows
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x0005e7d4

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1       18703   150231816   83  Linux
/dev/sda2           18704       19457     6056505    5  Extended
/dev/sda5           18704       19457     6056473+  82  Linux swap / Solaris
Attached the usb drive to a windows system, data on drive can be manipulated. Removed drives properly and attached to the ubuntu system. But again not recognized.

What to do?
Thanks, gGuzz

USB ports are ok

USB ports have been checked with another usb drive. No problem, drive is recognised and can be used.
