Hi all i have an external hdd dock with a 150gb drive in it i am trying to access in linux, but i can not see it all i see is :

root@ubuntu:/home/richard# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 161.1 GB, 161061273600 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19581 cylinders, total 314572800 sectors

Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000a7dbe

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *        2048    88082431    44040192   83  Linux
/dev/sda2        88084478   104855551     8385537    5  Extended
/dev/sda5        88084480   104855551     8385536   82  Linux swap / Solaris

i have 1 x 120gb, 2 x 640gb drives in raid, and a 1.81tb drive connect to the pc, and the external hdd, however it is only displaying a 161.1 gb drive, how can i see the other drives ?
