I have Ubuntu 11.10 installed on a Delll E6520 (as a dual boot with Windows 7). When I plug the 1 TB Transcend StoreJet into the side left USB port, lsusb finds it, but it does not show up in fdisk or df (and of course, it doesn't automount). USB flash drives work fine (automounting properly); a Western Digital external drive doesn't automount quite properly but does show up in fdisk (and can be mounted manually when recalcitrant).

dmesg lines:

[Yes, it's bus 2, dev #4]

sudo lshw -C disk doesn't find it (shows only /dev/sda); likewise sudo fdisk -l ; sudo parted -l shows only the partitions on the internal drive /dev/sda.

This is quite likely a StoreJet-specific issue. Does it need a special driver? Does it need to have another module blacklisted?
