[Novalug] USB drive woes...

My 2tb external USB drive is down to 8gb free, so I bought a new 3tb external USB drive to shuffle some archives around.
They're both Western Digital "Elements" drives.
The system (kubuntu) doesn't see the new drive, doesn't even tell me a USB device was plugged in.
HOWEVER... MountManager ("Tool for monitoring of partitions") sees "sda 931gb disk" (that's the system internal hard drive), "sdb 1863gb disk" (that's the 2tb USB disk), AND "sdc 2794.5gb disk" - that MUST be the new 3tb USB disk.
Anyone have some clues (better yet, instructions...:)) on how to access this disk?
