Plug the drive in, and then run "tail /var/log/messages" to see what
messages are generated. I would not be surprised to if the problem
was that the drive was assigned a different letter. Also, you do not
want to use fdisk on anything but the base drive. Using it on
/dev/sdc1 will produce all kinds of interesting errors on a good drive.
