I have checked
sudo fdisk -i, and eventually even my boot menu. No matter what it does not show up. I can hear the drive's fan working so I know it is receiving power, and the USB port is working fine. Any ideas what I could do?
I tried with a different cable and it was the same result. I have also had this hard drive working with this laptop using this USB port before. The only change since it last worked was a system update. If there are any screenshots/logs I can/should add, please ask.
