Aww, bummer. What brand is it? I'll have to be sure not to order from them in the future... one last thing: try lsusb and see what you get.

comment Can't Mount External Drive After Reformatting
@Zamphatta darn. I have to go, but try looking up how to use the command-line tool parted to create a new partition table on /dev/sdb. Try doing sudo parted /dev/sdb, then type mklabel msdos, then print and exit. Then reboot and see if GParted recognizes it.

comment How can Ubuntu detect some mobile devices that debian doesn't?
I suppose it may have something to do with Ubuntu's more lax approach to the whole "Free Software" topic. I'd be willing to bet that there's some proprietary driver that Ubuntu includes that allows it to access your device that Debian doesn't allow.

comment Ethernet not detected whatsoever
I can't log into chat for some reason, but sudo mii-tool -v says 10 Mbit, Full Duplex, No link. ifup says interface already configured, and the tray icon still says "Ethernet network | device not managed".

comment Ethernet not detected whatsoever
Running mii-tool while 8139cp was still loaded said it couldn't find interface eth0, but after loading 8139too running mii-tool exited with no output (and no effect.) I've already tried ifup/downing the enterface, and ifup eth0 still doesn't exit cleanly while running 8139too. However, even though the command never exited, I can still close the terminal. mii-tool only exits cleanly after ifup-ing eth0 while running 8139too. So I have no ideas. :/

comment Ethernet not detected whatsoever
@grimpitch rmod was an invalid command, but sudo modprobe -r 8139too seemed to work. Adding the module 8139cp didn't fix it, though - the network tray icon now says "no network devices available", and running ifdown and ifup doesn't work - ifup says "could not configure hardware" or something like that.

revised What is the difference between ./ and sh to run a script?
ha ha, 7 edits and not one person noticed the word "fun" instead of "run". Also fixed a grammar error.
