removable harddrive doesn't show up in #! - but it does in windows

subject line says it all,
am trying to work on this 149 gb hdd that's plugged into a Quick Drive box w/ a USB
- and it just doesn't show up in #! or ubuntu 12.04
- but I restart back into windows 7, it shows right up and I can do whatever
I looked a little thru synaptic but didn't notice (or know for sure) of a driver that would help
- and I looked a little thru Search, and I will look some more,
Where am I missing which way to approach making this work?

Have you tried using Windows' Disk Management to delete the entire partition and then recreate the partition and format?

If you don't know where to find it, you can just run diskmgmt.msc

This is just to see if the drive can become visible to Linux. Once the drive works under Linux, you can repartition and reformat the drive however you like.

I know that your drive works under Windows but not Linux; that's why I suggested you delete/repartition it under Windows. I am trying to help you get it working under Linux.

umgh, ok, I'll try that then, since you put it that way
enough now. in a while, get up early and try that,
let y'all know later; 'morrow might be busy.
thanks
