I don't know why but Ubuntu v9.10 isn't showing up one of it's partitions in my portable HDD.

Only the 2nd partition is shown, and I can't find the 1st one.

What might be a solution to this?

Run sudo tail -f /var/log/messages and see what happens when you plug your hard drive. – Ivan Petrushev Apr 26 '10 at 11:15
Also the output of sudo fdisk -l would help alot. – Bobby Apr 26 '10 at 11:58
