    SATA drive disappears


    I added a Seagate 120gb SATA hard drive to my computer and i edited fstab and everything. It works occasionaly but most of the time it isn't in /dev.
    I works in XP and only rarely in ubuntu.

    Does anyone know whats wrong?

    hi z3r0-c0d3r !!!

    /dev/sda1 /media/sda1 vfat defaults,utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0 1
    fstab file is correct... what about the contents of /media/sda1 folder... ?? i think SATA disks contents should be there all the time even if it does not appear in /dev.... /media/sda1 is mount point for SATA disk...
