fucking awesome. false-alarm fire alarm at the office, so I close laptop, pull wd external drive from the usb hub, throw stuff in bag and leave. Found out it was a false alarm as I'm walking out. And now the external drive won't mount, on either the laptop or arcturus. It doesn't even show up as a physical drive half the time. Grr. edit: finally, after swapping it back and forth between computers for a while, it mounts.
