    Hi Paul, please find above the output of "fdisk -l" as per your kind request... I had to split it in three separate messages due to the amount of characters!!!
    Just to let you know, I am a classical musician and for me it is like to read James Joice's "Ulisses" backwards
    I thank you in advance for any help, very appreciated!!!

    This is your USB disk
    Code:
    Disk /dev/sda: 1.84 TiB, 2000392994816 bytes, 3907017568 sectors
    Disk model: My Book         
    Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    So I guess next think to understand is why it is not being mounted.

    what happens when you
    ls /dev/sda

    Yes - but in reality it won't tell us much.
    So that is not a great next step.

    try
    dmesg | grep sda

    So the disk is not reporting partitions with fdisk. It is also not seeing the partition table (dos or gpt) or disk id.

    The output *should* look like this.

    Code:
    Disk /dev/sda: 465.78 GiB, 500107862016 bytes, 976773168 sectors
    Disk model: Portable SSD T5
    Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 33553920 bytes
    Disklabel type: dos
    Disk identifier: 0x6a169932
    
    Device     Boot Start       End   Sectors   Size Id Type
    /dev/sda1       65535 976773167 976707633 465.7G 83 Linux
    Is the drive encrypted? Going back to your dmesg output.

    Code:
    [   16.380378]  sda: [mac] sda1 sda2 sda3 sda4
    I'm not sure what [mac] is in the list. If you can reformat the drive, that would probably be the easiest next step.

    No the drive is not encrypted!
    I reformatted it several times, but still not detected... Since I am a Mac user the formatting process was achieved by connecting the drive to my Mac, so I am now considering to ask a friend of mine, which is a Linux user to reformat the unit again making use of the Linux file system... we will see...!!!
    By the way, the 8GB USB Key whom is now connected to the Raspberry was formatted by my Mac and it is working flawlessly...

    I am considering to buy a SSD external unit, but it is a pity since the WD Mybook is built very well with a pletora of connections USB, Firewire, SCASI and two replaceable HD inside!

    Dear gentlemen, finally problem solved
    I reformatted the HD making use of a Linux platform, it seems the EXT4 file system fixed all the issues!!!

    Excellent news. I was lucky to have been in Italy for almost two weeks in October of 2019, pre-covid, the Tuscany region.

    Your next visit, after the COVID pandemic of course, consider to visit the Emilia-Romagna region also!!!
