I just want to follow up on my previous posts for the sake of
anyone who may be interested.

The Western Digital Elements 2TB USB HDD arrived and it
works with Linux right out of the box.  The extra modules
needed are sg and usb-storage, assuming that all the usb
core stuff is built into the kernel.

The drive is pre-formatted with a ntfs filesystem, but using
cfdisk I re-partitioned the drive and formatted the new partitions
with ext3.  Everything works nicely.

This WD drive is USB 2.0, whereas the non-functional Seagate was
USB 3.0.  Whether or not this can explain the problem I cannot
say.

Thanks again to all who responded.

Frank Peters
