General :: External TB HD Not Recognized By OpenSUSE 11.3/

Jan 16, 2011

I have gone through Mint, Ubuntu, Fedora, and continue using them on different PCs but I recently had a problem with my graphics card on new releases.. another story all together.So I am using OpenSUSE 11.3 on my Dell inspiron 1526 AMD 64 bit. I have always been able to plug in my external HD and have it show on my desktop. Now with OpenSUSE something is different. I tried other flash drives, all show up and open to view on their own, but my 1GB ext HD doesn't. I am not a pro with the Terminal yet but I prefer to use it and am good at reading and copying commands from online.

as you can see it says "My Book" which is the name of my ext TB but where is it and how do I mount it?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: External USB HDD Not Recognized At Boot Time

Mar 20, 2011

I am actually working again on a problem i had already on opensus 11.3 (never resolved), and now also after the upgrade to 11.4 .

I do have an external HDD (Samsung STORY Station) usually connected to the linux server. I also have udev rules setup to automount the device on /media/xxx by label.

I used to have my own rules, now have some more coplete from the internet.

When I now reboot the server, the "sd*" device for story station is not created, and obviously not mounted.

If however I do switch of th estory station after reboot, and turn power on again, the device is configured and properly automounted as by udev rules.

Also during the boot the device is seen as from boot.msg:

<6>[ 1.444939] usb 2-2: New USB device found, idVendor=04e8, idProduct=5f06
<6>[ 1.448686] usb 2-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=11, SerialNum
<6>[ 1.452462] usb 2-2: Product: Samsung STORY Station
<6>[ 1.456217] usb 2-2: Manufacturer: JMicron

P.S.: I used th esearch function and google, but did find many similar articles but nothing matching my scenario. So I hope I did not miss something obvious.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: External SATA Drive Not Recognized / Cant Recreate The Partition On Server?

May 2, 2010

OpenSUSE 11.2 server, Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4P sda for system, 3 ext4 partitions, working fine.sdb promise RAID1 for data, 1 ext4 partition, working fine.sdc is an eSATA docking station for data backup, 1 encrypted ext4 partition -- here lies the problem.

This configuration has been functional for months until I decided to add two more external drives (sdc) to rotate through backups. I had difficulty with encyption on the first new drive and eventually decided to start over. Using the gui Yast Expert Partitioner, I deleted the single partition. That began a real nightmare...

Since deleting the partition, the system detects drives inserted in the docking station, but does not report them (including a different fully functional drive and a brand new unused drive). I have tested all drives on other computers and they function perfectly. I have rebooted the system several times while troubleshooting this issue.

Could not recreate the partition on server (since it does not recognize the drive), so I used Gparted on another computer - it all went without a hitch, formatted ext4. But when I placed the drive in the dock, the drive still was detected but not recognized.


BIOS lists the eSATA drive

Entering Yast Expert Partitioner, error message follows:

The partitioning on disk /dev/sdc is not readable by the partitioning tool parted, which is used to change the partition table.

You can use the partitions on disk /dev/sdc as they are. You can format them and assign mount points to them, but you cannot add, edit, resize, or remove partitions from that disk with this tool.

Yast partitioner shows drives: sda, sda1, sda2, sda3, sdb, sdb1 sbc is not listed.

# fdisk sdc results in: Unable to open sdc
# dmesg | grep tail reports:
[48442.370779] sd 0:0:0:0: [sdc] Unhandled error code
[48442.370793] sd 0:0:0:0: [sdc] Result: hostbyte=DID_BAD_TARGET driverbyte=DRIVER_OK

So how did partition deletion cause this issue, and how do I correct the problem? It is possible that my difficulties encrypting the first new drive are related (it's not my first time doing it successfully). It seems the problem is in the Kernel or configuration. I have invested many hours in forums and on google - tried dozens of possible fixes. I'm beginning to suspect system corruption or a bug, however all other system functions are working perfectly.

General :: External Hard Drive Is No Longer Recognized - Buffer I/O Error On Device Sdb1, Logical Block 6160408

Feb 28, 2010

The external hard drive which contains all my photos and where I backed-up all my important documents is no longer recognized. It is a three month old 500GB Iomage Prestige Desktop Hard Drive.When I plug it in, it is recognised as a USB device, because it shows up when I type lsusb, but dmesg gives this error message.

[19712.013250] usb 2-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 21
[19712.145347] usb 2-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
[19712.147214] scsi25 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices


I popped the disk out of the casing put it on a SATA connect internally and then tried the file recovery programs testdisk/photorec and SpinRite, but both failed because they couldn't recognize the external hard disk.

Ubuntu :: 640 GB External HD Not Recognized Correctly?

Mar 12, 2010

I bough a 640 GB external USB disk.I found something wasn't working well when I couldn't restore a backup from the disk (with sbackup).So I tried to convert the filesystem from fat32 to something newer.I installed gparted, and it shows no partitions on the 640 drive (however, I can access the filesystem!!!). Also, for some reason it shows as a 298.08 GiB drive.So I thought I should format it to solve this. When I tried to do this, gparted simply closed, with no error messages.

Jaunty is fully updated but SUDDENLY is not recognizing external devices (card reader, camera, DVD inserted in drawer, etc.) In other words, I cannot see my media and, therefore, cannot open it.

Anybody else having problems here? What's up? Did something go wrong in the updates?

Debian Configuration :: HDD In External Docking Station Is Not Recognized Via USB

Jan 9, 2016

Recently (in 2015) our Debian systems started not to recognize HDDs connected via an external docking station.

On my computer I run: (uname -a)

* Linux violin 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt9-3~deb8u1 (2015-04-24) x86_64 GNU/Linux
* If I connect to a flashdrive to the USB2 port, it is recognized as sd* (messages are also written to dmesg/syslog)
* If I connect the USB3 connector of the external docking station with an 1TB WD SATA docked, to this USB2 port (the external docking station has its own power supply, so I do not expect to have a problem with the current, the drive spins up and is spinning), there is nothing in the dmesg/syslog, and no new items under /dev/sd* or lsusb or similar tools.
* If I connect the same external docking station with the same disk via eSATA on a different computer it is recognized. That computer runs the same debian. If I connect through its USB2 port it does not work either.
* I also tried another docking station and USB cable.

General :: Cowon S9 Not Recognized In Banshee Or Rhythmbox OpenSuse 11.3?

Dec 28, 2010

i am not real sure where to place this thread, so i will try here first. i have a Cowon S9 mp3 player that i like to plug into my computer and play music through Rhythmbox under Ubuntu. I have been trying other distros (OpenSuse 11.3 being my current distro). However when i plug in my mp3 player to my OpenSuse box, it doesn't show up in the side bar of Rhythmbox like in Ubuntu. I have shutdown my firewall, i compared the installed plugins under the OpenSuse Rhythmbox to those under Rhythmbox under Ubuntu and they are the same. i've tried Googleing my problem and have not found a solution. Either i am not entering the correct search terms, or NOBODY else is having the same problem i am. I have OpenSuse installed on both my laptop and my desktop and I have the same problem with both.

Ubuntu :: Laptop Speakers Ok / But External Speakers Not Recognized

Feb 17, 2010

I recently installed Kubuntu 9.04 Jaunty on my buddy's laptop. It's working alright, except when we try to plug the external computer speakers into the sound jack in the front, there is no change; it keeps playing through the onboard speakers. My friend and I are getting pretty frustrated because we use those speakers to watch movies with, and the onboard speakers aren't sufficient. If I need to provide any other info, let me know and I'll do so.

General :: How To Change Xfs Journal From External To Internal / If External Log Is Gone

Dec 27, 2010

I have an external hard drive with an xfs partition on it. It was using an external journal, but in re-installing Slackware I removed the partition holding the external journal, forgetting what it was at the time. I didn't touch the contents of the external hard drive, but now I can't mount it and the various xfs programs seem to demand that it be mounted in order for them to change anything.Anyone have any ideas on how to change an xfs partition from external log to internal? Failing that, how do I get the information off it?

General :: External DVD-RW (ASUS) - Which /dev/ File Associated With External Dvdrom

Dec 11, 2010

I plugged in my external dvd-r (asus) via usb. It showed me some message on shell, that it has detected the cdrom(although its dvd rom as well but nevermind) and its of ASUS. But how do i know which dev it was associated with in /dev/? Since i had to test something, i plugged it out, and save the output of ls /dev/ > ~/result.txt

after plugging the dvd-rom, i compared the results and was able to find that it was associated with simple cdrom i.e. /dev/cdrom. I wanted to know that is there any command that will tell me which /dev/ file was associated with external dvdrom? i tried to see in the following result

1) df -h ( no results, just the already mounted partitions)
2) fdisk -l ( same as above)
3) dmesg | tail (shown almost the same result as was shown on shell at the time of plugging the dvd)

Debian Hardware :: HDD Not Recognized In BIOS But Recognized Upon Boot

Sep 18, 2014

I have a backup HDD with a different distro for my laptop and i can boot into it via external usb or if swapped into the laptop. This HDD/install in question is debian testing and was working fine, the issue arose suddenly. I was first suspecting a failure of hardware somewhere on the motherboard, but the hdd i was using with an external usb adapter also works when installed into the machine. also, the HDD is recognized once i have booted using the external HDD and distro, but it is not recognized by the bios. so i dunno, my first guess is something became corrupt within the testing install, but i guess its also possible that there is some wrong with the HDD but thats not immediately apparent as all the data is still accessible.

Should also note that the HDD with testing on it is also recognized when connected via the external usb adapter, while booted from alternative distro/HDD.

Also. just tried this, but i can get the testing HDD/disto to boot if connected externally. it was going pretty quick, but there i did catch a line about a corrupt filesystem. any commands to run to see what might be going on?? log files to look at?

Ubuntu :: Sd Card Not Recognized - How To Make It Recognized

Jun 2, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 11.04. The drive was formatted when I installed so it's 100% Ubuntu. The only major problem I have encountered is that Ubuntu will not recognize my SD cards. I really need to access these cards, all my film footage is on there. I think the internal SD card reader (If such a thing exists) would have been deleted during the installation process. I am a greenthumb to Ubuntu and have never used it before so I am rather stuck...

why my sd card is not recognised (not mounted) when I insert it into the sd card slot...neither if it is already inserted at bootup nor if it is inserted afterwards? I am running Opensuse 11.2 (with KDE4), and I have no reason to suspect the hardware (yet), since it was OK recently with OS 11.1.

OpenSUSE Install :: Raid Is Not Recognized

Dec 14, 2009

I have got a mid-aged server which i upgraded with a simple SATA-Raid-Controller with a VT6421A chipset.I attached two Samsung 750 GB Hard disks and created directly after the POSt screen a nice Raid 1 array. Ubuntu will recognize it as well as windows (which I would never ever use... ;-)).SuSE 11.1 (we need this OS for confirmity) will simply just recognize both disks in the partitions overview. The point "RAID" remains empty.

Are there any hints out there how I can enable the whole raid stuff in open suse? Do I need to integrate other drivers / modules to get thinks working?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: CD/DVD Player Not Recognized?

May 1, 2010

I've been trying to play audio CDs in the CD/DVD drive on my machine but I can't get ANY CD Player software to recognize the drive. However, data CDs are read just fine. If I want to play a CD, I have to use the burner drive which is readily seen by all the audio CD software (KsCD, Kaffeine, etc.). I've added myself to the audio, video and cdrom groups but to no avail (I kinda knew it was fruitless to begin with but tried it anyway). I'm running 11.2, 64-bit mode and aside from this minor (but maddening) glitch, I've been very impressed with the distro. I don't want to use the burner for spinnin' platters.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: AP Is Recognized But Can't Ping It

Apr 12, 2011

just installed OpenSuse 11.4 on my laptop and now I'm trying to get my wireless to work. I read the two stickies posted in this section, so I'll now try to give all the information that is needed. If anything is missing, let me know and I'll update it asap.

II. My device is RTL8187B_WLAN_Adapter and the kernel driver is listed as: rtl8187

III. Do I need external firmware? With "dmesg | grep firmware", I found the following, although I'm not sure if that pertains to the wireless or something else:

OpenSUSE Network :: Proxy I Set Is Not Being Used Or Recognized By Some Apps

Jul 6, 2011

The proxy I set is not being used or recognized by some apps. For instance dropbox would be able to detect the proxy settings i set using yast>network>proxy while firefox would not recognize it. In firefox i tried using the automatic proxy and using the system proxy. Either of the two won't detect it. However, when I manually set it in firefox's preference it would work. For empathy the proxy is not recognized as well. In addition, can I set the proxy in the empathy app itself? I could not locate it. Also the online updates and repository checks recognizes the proxy I set up.

By the way I am using GNOME 3 as my DE. I would also like to share that when I use the network settings > proxy of gnome 3 none of the apps recognize the proxy.
