I hooked up a small 40GB external USB disk to a couple of USB sockets on my server and waited for a few seconds for the disk to be mounted. Nothing happened. I rechecked the cabling, poked around in the messages file, did this and this, but the drive wasn’t to be seen. I walked around the desk again, unplugged the drive, and came around to plug it into the front of the computer, thinking it might help. It did, because I had plugged it into the wrong machine. :-(
