I have a folder on an external USB drive that I'd like to synchronize in Ubuntu One but when I right click on the folder, or any other folder on the USB drive for that matter, I don't get the option to sync with Ubuntu One. Does anyone know how to make this work?

From the Ubuntu One FAQ:

Can I synchronize a folder outside my home folder?

No, currently you can only select to synchronize folders inside your home directory.

Since your usb drive is mounted outside of your home folder (usually /media) you can not currently synchronize it using Ubuntu One.
