Hardware :: Unable To Get Phatbox Hard Drive Caddy To Mount

Mar 9, 2011

I'm struggling to get a USB removable hard drive to mount in Linux. Its part of a removable car audio system called a Phatbox. I can see the unit is being recognised by the system, but I can't find a relevant /dev/sda* entry which I can then mount to a folder. How do I diagnose why that error happened - and why it is that although its discovered it as a scsi device, scsi9, it then offlines it?

General :: Unable To Mount Portable Hard Drive On Ubuntu?

Apr 5, 2010

My portable hard drive (WD My Passport), which used to work correctly now does not automount on my Ubuntu system. It does work on a Windows machine or even when plugged into WD HD TV, which is a Linux based device. There's one NTFS partition spanning the whole drive.When I plug the disk in, I see the following in dmesg:[269259.504631] usb 1-2.2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 20[269259.604674] usb 1-2.2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choiceHowever it does not mount in GNOME and I don't see it when I type:sudo fdisk -lAny suggestions why this might be? I repaired the partition using chkdsk on Windows, so the issue is probably not filesystem related.

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).

Ubuntu :: Unable To Mount Internal Drive - Error: Mount Exited With Exit Code 1: Helper Failed

Aug 5, 2010

I have 2 internal drives. One is for the OS and one is for the Data. I tried to get the Data drive to mount automatically at login using some crap I found on a linux blog. Safe to say it didn't work and now I can't mount it with the OS on the OS Drive.

It mounts from a live CD and all the data is perfectly safe. When I try to mount the drive I get this error message: "Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: only root can mount /dev/sdb1 on /media/data" What have I done wrong and how can I make it mount again? Preferably this time at login.

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.

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

My smb.conf file looks like this:

That folders I cannot access are Music and Videos.

Ubuntu :: Can't Mount 2nd Hard Drive?

Aug 24, 2010

I have got 2 hard drives running one one of my computers which i am running as an server. I was using Ubnntu Server which is good but i have decided to change the way that i am going to use the server and have installed Xubuntu over ubuntu server. However in the installation the hard drives shwn when it asked where i would like to install the operateing system. It installed sucessfully and is working but it cant mount my other hard drive which has all of my data on it.

I had tried mounting it throught the command prompt and had no success. After which i have checked if the the toher hard drive is being reconised by Xubuntu and it is as sdb1 but i caqnt mount it and get to my data. I hoped that i can try and put in my ubuntu live cd and see if it can pick the seoncd hard drive up and mount it which it has not been able to.

I have 2 20 gigabyte hard drives atm the moment and i am not adding the others until i can get to all my stuff again form the other hdd.

Ubuntu :: How To Mount A Hard Drive In OSX

Feb 20, 2011

I want to pull a few things off this external hard drive I have that is an ubuntu install from last year. However, my mac won't recognize the file system and mount it so I can pull the few files I need off of it.

What's the trick to getting a mac to find an ubuntu hard drive?

My other option is removing my laptop hard drive, installing the ubuntu one, opening ubuntu manually, burning the information I need to a CD, or a usb key, and then removing the ubuntu hard drive, and reinstalling my mac osx drive to the laptop bay.

Programming :: Hard Drive Won't Mount

Jul 23, 2010

I am trying to mount a hard drive it shows up as /dev/sda1

I can click it and mount it via the GUI but I need it mounted for this script and do not want to have an extra step of doing it manually

I have tried (also tried sda vs sda1, no differance)
sudo mount /dev/sda1
sudo mount -t ntfs/dev/sda1
sudo mount -t ntfs-3g/dev/sda1

I know the drive is sda the only partition on it being sda1, but either I get an error saying it couldn't be found or I simply get no response depending on how I alter the code

Oh also the drive shows hpfs/ntfs 0x07 in the disk utility

SUSE :: Unable To Boot Properly - System Is Unable To Read Startup Information From Hard Drive

Jan 19, 2011

I am running the latest suse release downloaded directly from their website. I ran the installation after buring the dvd and everything seemed to be working fine. after the installation i ran updates and used it for a little bit. When i shut it down that night and went to restart it I got an error that stated the OS wasnt there. I then went through the installation and everything and it retained the information from the installation before (web history etc.) but for some reason every time I reboot or shut it down the system is not able to read the startup information from the hard drive and will not come on without me re installing it.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Usb Hard Drive Won't Mount?

Jan 24, 2010

I bought a "WD My Passport Essential 320 GB" usb drive. When I plug it in (suse 11.2 x86_64 gnome version), it won't automount, a message appears ".../dev/sr2 is not a valid block device", I can not mount it manually neither Don't have a clue how to proceed in solving this issue. The drive is a bit strange though, it has some software on it for protecting data, which I wont need, but can't get rid of it neither. However when I connected it to my laptop running ubuntu 9.10 x86_64, the drive automounted ok, so I guess I must be missing some additional software on my suse. The drive was initially NTFS formated, but I did reformat it to FAT with ubuntu.

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).
