    Cool External USB drives not showing up

    First off, thank to all the developers and other contributors for the new R1 and all the planning and preparation that appear to be going into Backtrack these days. I have a weird problem that may be a bug but didn't want to post there in case I am just missing something really easy. I have a hard drive install of BT4R1 but cannot mount, or even see, any external USB drives I plug in. I can use my external USB keyboard and my external USB ALFA wireless adapter just fine. Posted below are some of the commands I have run to check into the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Try opening konqueror and going to storage media and then hit the refresh button (after the drive is plugged in) and see if it pops up in the list.
