I have the same device and it works perfectly on 10.2 and 9.3.
Usually Kde pops up and offers to mount it on /media/sda1

After confirming it shows up in /etc/mtab as
/dev/sda1 /media/usbdisk reiserfs rw,nosuid,nodev,sync 0 0


Here is a section of my log after the drive was plugged in. (Note: Since I use this on
Linux only, I nuked the vfat partition on the drive and formatted it with reiserfs to allow
larger than 4gig files. I uses it for large backup files). It works flawlessly.
