Fedora core 5 has stopped reading my Iomega USB externa drive. and before it stopped altogether, it didn't read the right size (it insisted it was 45 gigs when it's a 120) when I run fdisk -l I get the following.

1) what is the DM-* thing? and 2): how do I get it to read the USB drive again?

root@TuxOne ~]# fdisk -l
