I have two samsung hard drives, both are 1TB drives. I am having difficulty mounting them under Ubuntu 13.04. I have never had this problem in the past using this exact hardware configuration. It appears that something changed in the Linux kernel post version 3.5 that is causing this problem. I did not have this problem with older versions of linux and I'm able to load these drives in windows without issue. Your assistance would greatly be appreciated. Here are the outputs of blkid and fdisk -l respectively. The two hard drives in question are being recognized as "promise_fasttrack_raid_member" for some reason:
