    There are a few things you can try:
    1. See if the drive worksunder windows. If it does, backup data and format it as a FAT file system NOT FAT32. Now try under linux.
    2. If this doesn't work, plug the drive in before the system boots. For me, this is the only way I can get my drive recognised in Linux. Note some programs may refuse to run when trying this method (Konqueror, Control Center to name a few)
