Ubuntu :: Put A Blank CD (Verbatim CD-R) Into External CD Drive Using 10.04 LTS

Jun 12, 2011

I put a blank CD (Verbatim CD-R) into my external CD drive using 10.04 LTS. Dmesg shows:

[ 255.950512] sr 3:0:0:0: [sr0] Result: hostbyte=DID_OK driverbyte=DRIVER_SENSE
[ 255.950527] sr 3:0:0:0: [sr0] Sense Key : Illegal Request [current]
[ 255.950542] sr 3:0:0:0: [sr0] Add. Sense: Logical block address out of range
[ 255.950558] sr 3:0:0:0: [sr0] CDB: Read(10): 28 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 01 00
[ 255.950589] end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 0

When I go to /media there are no directories that could be the CD-ROM. I therefore cannot 'see' the CD (which is blank btw). I then went into XP. Windows Explorer could see the blank CD. I then wrote to it. I then went back into Ubuntu. Now when I put the CD into the external drive Dmesg shows:

[97.594505] ISO 9660 Extensions: Microsoft Joliet Level 3
[97.674629] ISO 9660 Extensions: RRIP_1991A

When I go to /media I see the name of the CD. Why will XP and Ubuntu see the CD with information on it but only XP can see the blank CD?

Ubuntu :: How To Mount Iso On External Hard Drive?

Jan 18, 2010

I am having problems mounting an iso on my external hard drive. I do not want to move it onto my linux partition because it is 3.6 GB. I have a directory made (/media/iso) that I would like to mount it in, but if that doesn't work then I don't care where it goes. After I mount it I want to be able to run it using Wine, but that will come later. For now I just need to get it mounted. And, of course, I am fairly new to linux/ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Can't Mount External Hard Drive Though Can In XP

Feb 23, 2010

I've been checking the Forums and I can't find anything similar to my problem yet. I have 2 external drives that my UBUNTU 9.10 doesn't recognize, although I can see them perfectly in Win XP.I was using them in Ubuntu until 2 weeks ago, when this problem started and I can't find a way to see/mount them again. GPARTED doesn't find any of them; and when aply fdisk -l, can't see them either (only my internal HD).

Ubuntu :: Cannot Mount External Hard Drive (10.04)?

May 10, 2010

I run 10.04 lucid in a laptop with EXT4 as filesystem, and I tried to mount an external hard drive from a Windows that, obviously, uses FAT32. Its the first time I try to mount a hard drive (external) since the upgrade to 10.04. Do I have to download some packages via synaptic? If not, what do I have to do?

Plus, I have run
Code:
sudo fdisk -l
and this is what I get

Ubuntu :: External Hard Drive Won't Mount?

Jun 8, 2011

I recently wiped and re-installed Ubuntu on my system Lenovo Thinkpak T510, now running 11.04. Before formatting my hard drive, I backed up all my information to an external USB Seagate FreeAgent Drive, which I reformatted to ext4 before copying my data there using a rsync command. After reinalling the operating system, I'm no longer able to get the drive to mount. I'm not quite sure what's going on. Here are the results of a fdisk command:

Code:
$ sudo fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

[Code].....

I'm not able to mount the drive from my mac either. Did I do something wrong when backing up my data and loose everything (fortunately, most of it is also backed up elsewhere, just not all in a single place), or is there something else I can try to get it back?

General :: External Hard Drive Won't Mount ?

Jan 20, 2010

I am trying to recover files off a 3.5" IDE Hard Drive that had Windows ME installed on it. I have access to a MacBook, Windows XP Desktop PC, and a cd with Ubuntu 8.10 on it.

Attempts:

1) If I make the HD the only primary master HD it won't boot up.

2) If I make it a slave drive it won't boot up.

3) I purchased an external enclosure from Radio Shack which turned out to be crap and online reports supported this conclusion. I got nowhere with that thing. Bestbuy doesn't sell 3.5" IDE enclosures.

4) By using an IDE / SATA to USB kit, I am able to connect the HD to the PC via USB cable. XP will detect the drive, however the HD will not my displayed under "My Computer" nor "Disk Management".

Onto linux (this is where I grabbed the Ubuntu cd):

5) When connected, the HD will show up under "Computer" as a "USB Drive". When I double click on it I get the error "Unable to mount location Can't mount file".

Allow me to show you some commands I ran:

Code:

Ubuntu :: Permanently Mount External Hard-drive

Mar 17, 2010

I've recently started using a 500gb external hard drive for music and backups. It is always plugged into the computer but doesn't always mount at boot-up and I have to dis-connect and re-connect the USB cable. The desktop icon then appears.The fact that it's mount point changes also means I can't share the Music folder on the external hard drive via Samba (WinXP machines say they can't access the folder) and also Songbird 'loses' the tracks.

How do I permanently mount the external hard drive? I assume it will mean some editing of the fstab file? Unfortunately, I've got no idea of what I should enter on there.The external hard drive volume is called 'Music and BackUps' - Gparted screengrab attached.

Ubuntu :: External Hard Drive Won't Mount After Reformat

Apr 9, 2010

I recently reformatted my external hard drive. Somewhere along the way I think my fstab got messed up because now my hard drive won't mount. Instead I get the following error:

Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error

In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so

If I mount it through Gparted, it mounts just fine.

My fstab currently looks like this:

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).

General :: External Hard Drive Won't Mount On Karmic - Macbook 2,1

Jan 30, 2010

Manually mount or fix my external hard drive. I can't format the drive because I have important data on it. The drive is 1TB Select USB 2.0 Desktop Hard Drive from Iomega. When I plug it in, a message appears that reads:

"Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb2,missing codepage or helper program, or other error. In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so".

Also, I plugged in the drive, typed the command "sudo fdisk -l" in the terminal, and received the following:

WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sda'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.

WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sdb'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.

Partition table entries are not in disk order

General :: External Hard Drive Won't Mount On Karmic, Macbook 2,1 Again?

Sep 3, 2010

Earlier this year I encountered a problem with my external hard drive; it would not mount automatically and I kept getting an error message. Last time I was able to fix it by typing in the terminal 'sudo fsck /dev/sdb2'. Once again it's not mounting automatically and I'm not even getting the error message. I can't format the drive because I have important data on it. The drive is 1TB Select USB 2.0 Desktop Hard Drivefrom Iomega. Also, I plugged in the drive, typed the command "sudo fdisk -l" in the terminal, and received thefollowing:WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sda'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.
