    You haven't provided enough information for a useful reply.

    What is your host OS?
    Does your external disk work in your host OS?
    Are you trying to access the raw disk (probably won't work) or access it via the host?
    What is the format of the external disk?
    How is it connected to the hardware (USB?)
    Anything else you think might be useful?
