Debian :: Unable To Mount External Media

Mar 8, 2009

Unless I am logged in as root, I am unable to mount an external device (such as a flash drive or music player) This is what I get: I can, of course, pull up a root terminal and use the mount command, but I don't want every user to have access to the root terminal, but I would like everyone to be able to mount external devices. Code: Linux debian 2.6.26-1-686 #1 SMP Sat Jan 10 18:29:31 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba And External Drive - Unable To Mount Location - Failed To Mount Windows Share - Dialog Box

May 25, 2010

I have been trying to share folders from my main PC which is running Ubuntu 10.04. I have been able to figure out Samba enough to get my a couple of folders shared, but I have been unable to share any folders which are on my external harddrive. After entering the path in my smb.conf file they appear on the network but I am unable to navigate to them. When trying to navigate to them through the network folder on the pc they are actually connected to I get an "Unable to mount location: Failed to mount windows share" dialog box. On the windows pc I am trying to share with I get, "Windows cannot acces \Josh-Desktop
ame of folder"

My smb.conf file looks like this:

That folders I cannot access are Music and Videos.

General :: Mount External USB Drive In Debian To A Mount Point Based On The Volume Name

May 5, 2011

How do I configure my Debian installation to mount external USB drives to mount points based on the volume names of the drives? For instance, if I have a thumb drive with the volume name of "SWORDFISH," how do I have Linux mount it at /media/SWORDFISH? I'm aware that this can be setup in FSTAB, but that requires that I know the UUID of the device beforehand and that I take the time to set each external device up in FSTAB first. That does nothing for me when I have a thumb drive that has never been plugged into my computer before.

This seems to be setup by default in Ubuntu/Kubuntu, but is not working for me with a fresh installation of Debian Squeeze and KDE4. I've spent the past 2 hours Googling for a solution and have turned up nothing. UPDATE: My results are inconsistent. Sometimes Debian mounts devices to mount points based on the volume names, and other times it gives them generic mount points (e.g. /media/usb1).

Ubuntu :: Unable To Mount External Drive?

Jul 29, 2011

Having issues while mounting my 1TB passport USB drive. When running this command....

Code:
sudo mount /dev/sdc /mnt/WD/

I got this error: mount: you must specify the filesystem type I even tried adding the filesystem, which was or is ext4

Code:
sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/sdc /mnt/WD/
Getting a different error instead:
Code:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

I should mention that this was working just a few hours ago. There was a power glitch and my Ubuntu headless server lost power. I turned it on and since then, I am getting this error. I would prefer not to format via GUI .... 1st because I have data there , 2nd, because I don't want to rely on a graphical interface but being able to fix this via terminal.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Mount Ext4 External Hard Drive

Jul 5, 2010

I wanted to make a clone of my drive, so I tried the ole sudo dd if=/dev/sda1 of=/dev/sdg1 trick, but first I formatted the drive to the Ext4 format. I wish I would have understood that format a little more before I decided to format it that way. Now I can't access my drive at all. I read almost everything on the net about manually mounting it, but almost everything was in Fat, NTFS, or Ext3/2 format. I even read the Ubuntu documentation. I don't know if it's because my drive is in Ext4 format, or if I'm just not doing something right.

As you can see in the following picture, it recognizes the drive, yet I am unable to mount it. I am trying to access the 160 GB drive. I even tried to see if Windows would recognize it. No go. Today while lurking in the Ubuntu Forums I found a way to make a live .iso of my system (which I think is awesome). So now I want to reformat my drive and use it as storage once again. I think I will restore it to NTFS. I thought that the Ext4 format would work better in Linux (which I was wrong), but now I need Windows to recognize it as well, and it needs to be able to store files bigger than 4 GB (unless you have a suggestion on what to format it as).

Debian :: Mount Permissions On External HD?

Nov 13, 2010

I have a debian machine with an external harddrive. I have a windows machine on the same network from which I can read the files from the debian drive, but I cant write to it.
At some point in time (several months ago?) I could.

currently, I have this line in my /etc/fstab: /dev/sdb1 /media/MUSIC/ vfat user,uid=1000,gid=1000,rw,umask=000 0 0

and i've tried a hundred different mount commands (but not as many as i've tried fstab lines) but generally have been using this at start up: sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/MUSIC/ (i am under the impression that i should not have to use 'sudo' when doing this, since the fstab line includes 'user' but if i dont, the command fails)

no matter what I've tried, the permissions come out as owned by root: drwxr-xr-x 905 root root 163840 2010-10-17 17:45 Music attempting (as root) to change ownership of the directory also does not work: chown: changing ownership of `/media/MUSIC/': Operation not permitted (because its a FAT file system, i think)

Debian :: Mount Any External Volume In Thunar?

May 27, 2011

I am running wheezy + xfce. When I attempt to mount any external volume in Thunar, I get a message saying "Unable to mount-- not authorized." This is problem #1. A bigger problem that I think is related is my wireless. Logged in as a normal user, I cannot connect to any wireless networks using network-manager. My wireless card is functional and I can see all the networks around me, but when I click on one to connect, nothing happens. No password prompt, nothing. Strangely, when I log in as root, wireless works flawlessly. I am a member of the netdev group.

Debian Hardware :: Format And Mount An External HD?

Dec 13, 2010

Santa brought me an early Christmas present: a new External HD - Verbatim CLĂ–N - 250GBPlug it in and it works great. Problem is this: I do not use Windows at all just Debian Squeeze and this thing is formatted FAT32 - an ancient format.I would prefer EXT3 or maybe NTFS to be compatible with Windows "IF" there is a need (cousins etc).However as soon as I format it to NTFS or Ext3 it becomes "root" only.This is my HD, how can I format it and keep permissions for myself?

A friend suggested changing /etc/fuse.conf
# Set the maximum number of FUSE mounts allowed to non-root users.
# The default is 1000.

Debian :: Mount Multiple External Hard Drives ?

Dec 20, 2010

How to mount multiple external HDD's. I'd like to link or mount the music, torrents, and general files from several external hard drives and apply permissions (in some cases I only want the mount or link to be read only).

My setup:
- Seagate Dockstar running Debian squeeze (it's headless so I don't have a gui running)
- Two external HDD's with one partition on each (250GB and 400GB)

What I'd like to accomplish:
1. Mount the external HDD's to /media/HDDs as read/write (this is already working using udev and autofs and it's available in samba)
2. I'd like the MUSIC directories on both external HDD's to show up under the same mount point. In other words I want the MUSIC folders (from both HDD's) to appear as one large library of music. And I only want this to be readonly. It will be used as the library for mpd and/or squeezebox.
3. Mount a directory used to download torrents to. I'll probably pick on HDD as the target for torrent dowloads. But let me know if you have any other ideas regarding this.

Since I have the first one done, how would I accomplish 2 & 3?

Debian :: Unable To Mount USB Stick

When I plug in my USB stick (with fat32 filesystem, labeled flash8p1) and then try to mount it from the Places menu, I get an error box that pops up: Unable to mount flash8p1 Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail  or so

I don't understand what the dmesg is telling me, but here it is for those who may understand:

[Code]....

I just got my Gnome-flavored Squeeze running this morning, and I'm still working out the configuration. I have disabled automounting and autobrowsing of removable media, but anyway this problem was occuring when I had automounting enabled. I have the OS installed to a 4-GB microSDHC card plugged in to the front of the computer. The computer is a Toshiba Mini NB505.

edit: And now, I just plugged the flash8p1 into a different USB port, and it mounted from the places menu. I wonder, though, if this is related to the fact that I had first mounted it from the command line.

Debian :: Unable To Mount Usb Device Manually

Debian Lenny, kernel 2.6.26-2-686 I'm trying to manually mount my digital camera. Picasa recognizes the device and imports pictures. However, I'd like to access my device manually as there are small video files I'd like to retrieve. It's for a fujifilm Z33 WP digicam.

Code:

$ lsusb
Bus 005 Device 010: ID 04cb:01f5 Fuji Photo Film Co., Ltd
Bus 005 Device 004: ID 046d:c012 Logitech, Inc. Mouseman Dual Optical

In Picasa...where it says "Select Device", it finds

Code:

USB PTP Class Camera@usb:

and

Code:

USB PTP Class Camera@usb:005,010

selecting either one of them can access the camera directly. How can I pinpoint my device and mount it using the regular mount /mnt/point/ /path/to/my/cam?
