    Try running the command
    Code:
    sudo mount -a
    to see if it shows up. If not, try disconnecting and reconnecting it to see if it shows up then.

    My Seagate external drive doesn't automatically mount correctly so I have added a line to my fstab to specifically mount it. I never unplug mine as it just sits there making hourly backups so I don't know if that's an option for you?
