It could be that power isn't sufficient on the USB connection. you might need to plug in your AC adapter.

Also this drive has both FireWire and USB ports on it.

To get it working, make sure that the AC adapter is supplying power, and that USB is connected correctly, then re-boot.

Ubuntu should recognize the drive.

Command line tools that may help are

lsusb

this shows which devices are connected via USB to your computer.

dmesg | less

will help you look for the drive's identification and recognition by the computer, providing information such as vendor strings, capacity, and device assignments.

Good luck.

Hi

A USBFLB80 is not a hard disk controller, it's an external USB hard drive and does not require any driver when used in Windows ME/2000/XP. This device is plug and play in Windows XP providing you have a working usb port to plug it into.

Smartdisk Firelite model USBFLB40-c - not recognising - stored data recovery


Most likely the vacuum and not the ants. The vacuum could have given it a dangerous charge or vibration. You may need to extract the drive from the enclosure. It possible ( hopefully) that the enclosures bridge board failed instead of the drive. When you extract the drive, you will see....its construction is made well, and can stand up to crittters..


keep me posted.
