    Default Problem Mounting USB External HDD

    Hello all,

    Thank you all in advance for taking the time to look at this. It's a peculiar problem that is really starting to get on my nerves. I'm running OpenSUSE 11.0 right now, and I'm trying to get my external hard drive to work. Here's what I've done so far.
    • Tried different USB ports
    • Tried using a USB key in the given port (which works fine)
    • Tried using fdisk -l (yields nothing about the external hdd)


    I also tried using the tail -f /var/log/messages command, and got this sequence of lines over and over and over...
    Code:

    As a last resort you could write a bug report, and then follow up on the report to see if they can find you a solution .... Guidance for writing bug reports is here: Submitting Bug Reports - openSUSE Use your openSUSE forum username and password to login when writing a bug report. Good luck!
