Generally, USB external drives need to have jumpers set to master. Check the specific documentation that came with your drive, or go to the manufacturers web page to find out. The setting is accomplished by setting a small jumper on the back of the drive to the appropriate pins. I think what Neil talking about the ports on your computer...when he said some USB drives don't like the "front" ports (?), although personally I have never experienced that.
Clear case of engaging keyboard before eyes.
Front USB ports you don't find on a laptop usually, but some caddies and what not may have issues working from USBs that are on the front of a computer case for a wide variety of reasons, including the issue that these are the first USBs to get damaged usually.
