"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

check /media to see if there al any new filesystems added. I've seen this once before where the drive was visible under another name.

Actualy, it seems that while upgrading Ubuntu from 8.04 to 10.04, my hard disk drive changed its device from /dev/sda to /dev/sdb.

My /etc/fstab was previously like the following (in 8.04) :
/dev/sda6 / ........
/dev/sda7 /home .........
/dev/sdb1 /media/rd1000 ........

Now, my fstab is different (in 10.04):
UUID=...... / ....
UUID=....... /home ....
/dev/sdb1 /media/rd1000 ........

At boot time, a "df" command gives that my hard disk drive is on /sdb6 and /sdb7.
I understand that there is a conflict between my hard disk drive and my RD1000.

I solved the problem by changing in my fstab the following:
# /dev/sdb1 /media/rd1000 ........
/dev/sda1 /media/rd1000 ........

an it works fine now !

I hope my own experience will be usefull to someone else
