Installation drive appearing but passport drive not available

Hello all,

I have a 500 Gb passport WD external hard disk. It has been working really well until recently i plugged it into my pc and usually await for the drives to show up and mount. It mounts usually 2 drives: the installation of the WD software drive and the Passport drive. The first one is appearing and gets me working through it normally but the second is not showing at all.

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 and i really do not know what the problem really is.

Help is appreciated.

Thank you
