OpenSUSE Hardware :: External Hard Disk Not Detected By USB 3.0 Port?
Aug 15, 2011
Hardware: Toshiba Satellite L755Software: openSuse 11.4 with kernel 3.1.0-rc1-98-g72fa599-1-vanillaPeripherals: Logilink USB 3.0 to SATA HDD Adapter with Western Digital WD2500JSI installed the Vanilla kernel in the hope that USB 3.0 will work. But though some things really have been fixed (for instance, the notebook can resume from sleep mode), USB 3.0 still doesn't work.

I had a dual boot (windows 7 + debian), both of them installed in my internal hard disk, with the GRUB in it. I have recently installed a second linux distro (mint), but I put it in an external hard disk. Now the GRUB allows me to boot any of the three operating systems, but I need the external disk to do it. It seems that after the mint installation the GRUB is now working from the external disk (if the external disk is not connected, the machine does not boot.) �Is there a way to change the location of the GRUB, to the internal hard disk of my laptop?
I recently bought 320 GB Trancend external hard disk and working fine days back.Earlier i could copy from and to the hard disk with out any issue. I dont know what happened after that now i am not able to write any files in to the external hard disk. This is not NTFS formatted device. here is some of the out put from terminal.
Code: sundar@sundar-sundar:~$ fdisk -l Disk /dev/sda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes
My Toshiba 500Gb USB hard drive is not being detected anymore when i insert it in 9.10. It only started doing this from last week, it was fine before (and it works fine in Windows XP). The connections are fine and all, because when i type "lsusb", i see it as follows:
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 19d2:0063 ONDA Communication S.p.A. Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 002 Device 004: ID 0930:0b09 Toshiba Corp.
I have 1tb Seagate Freeagent NTFS External HD. I have Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 with dual boot as Ubuntu. I'm primarily a windows user, since i'm not that well acquainted with linux. External Hard Drive does not detect- when i connect it..it just gives a whirring sound and the "My Computer" window hangs. Figured out the cause- and temporary solution- The drive should do principle mount automatically. It won't if the file system is not "clean". That is possible if the drive was connected while you hibernated Windows, or if you did not properly disconnect the drive.
I booted with ubuntu and did the following- sudo fdisk -l and got the following: Disk /dev/sdb: 1000.2 GB, 1000204884992 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x396e2b4d
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdb1 1 121601 976760001 7 HPFS/NTFS
Then I typed: sudo mkdir /media/FreeAgent sudo chmod 777 /media/FreeAgent And wrapped it up with editing fstab with the following code: #FreeAgent USB Drive /dev/sdf1 /media/FreeAgent ntfs defaults 0 0
Now the browser window for the freeagent hard drive pops up and I can access everything. I try to shutdown the computer but it won't as long as the hard disk is connected. So I have to pull the usb out. And the problem remains the same. I want the hard disk to be detected normally on my windows/linux (like normal usbs work-plug it in and it works). Also have no clue how to work a temporary solution like this with windows yet. I have boot with ubuntu everytime and repeat these steps when I want to access it.
I just had a fresh install of Fedora 13 x86_64 on my notebook after using fedora 13 x32 for a while.I am using KDE Desktop.Everything seemed to be working fine out of the box except for minor problems with sound and plugins.The biggest issue is that Fedora does not recognize when I plug an external USB HDD (WD 320 GB for this matter).The USB light on the HDD does not go on, and nothing is auto mounted.It seems that USB does not work at all - I have tried to plug another USB device and it didn't seem to have power.
I have a problem with my external hard drive. I've always used to connect it to my Ubuntu Server with the following command: sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 ..and it's worked fine, but after a reboot I did a couple of times ago, the hard drive no longer appears.sudo fdisk -l doesn't show the hard drive anymore. Connecting it to a Windows computer works, I even tried the "safely remove harddrive" function, but to no avail.
I am trying a network install of debian 6.0 by dumping the contents of a DVD onto my local http server. For some reason the Western Digital 80 GB pata HDD doesn't get detected when I click on 'detect disk', I even tried with a SATA, no luck.
I Installed Ubuntu 9.04 with XP theme. Then I installed Picasa and I have pictures on a 2nd hard disk. When I restart the PC Picasa doesn't see the 2nd drive. The 2nd HDD is mounted under /media/disk and clicking on the "My computer" icon (this is XP theme), I see the 2nd hdd. Now, I have to add this disk to Picasa again for it to scan the pictures. I don't want to do this on a regular basis.
I have Seagate Freeagent Go 500GB external hard drive that I use for backup. I wanted to resize the partition so I used GParted to shrink the 500GB NTFS partition to 400GB. The other 100 I wanted to encrypt and use for some other more important files. For some reason, the shrink failed and I disconnected the hard drive and reconnected it. I didn't see the icon appear on the desktop. I went into the Disk Utility to discover that GParted's shrink error deleted all of the partitions on my hard drive. So I created a new 400GB NTFS partition and put back all of my files. The other 100 is unallocated currently.
It will normally mount automatically and show up on the desktop but the hard drive won't mount without me going into the Disk Utility and mounting it through there. I can't even mount it from the Terminal with root privileges. It gives me this:
sudo mount /media/My Data mount: can't find /media/My Data in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
Now, I can unmount with root privileges and I can unmount it from the Disk Utility. I can browse and edit the files within. But I can't unmount it from within Nautilus or on the desktop (the Safely Remove Drive option is not there).
The new 400GB partition also isn't detected by GParted. It just shows the whole drive as unallocated.
All of my computers are second-hand (except 1 laptop but it doesn't count) and I see in my Dell 4600 there are 2 SATA connectors on the motherboard. I picked up a 250 GB SATA hard disk and cables recently and tried plugging it in but the system doesn't see it. I even disconnected all other disks to make sure there wasn't a conflict (master/slave) issue going on but the system still does not see it.
The disk is vibrating so I assume it is getting juice and is spinning. Is there a setting or something I have to do to tell the system to access the SATA? Do I have to look at RAID settings if there is only 1 SATA disk? Can I not have a SATA disk and an ATA disk plugged in at the same time? I want to try and determine if the disk is bad, or is it PEBKAC!
I tried to install ubuntu 10.10 today through livecd. but the partitions in my 60gb samsung harddisk are not detected. My entire harddisk is shown as unallocated free space. Also gparted is not detecting the partitions as well. I am currently not facing any problems with my partitions in windows xp. I tried the solution given here (to no avail): [URL]. I have had no such problems with previous versions of ubuntu.
whether all 2TB external hard disks will run on ubuntu 10.04 (lucid)? I was under the impression that Seagate and Western Digital would, but the store where I went to buy it told me they won't. I really need to buy an external hard disk as I'm running out of the space
I am trying to port the current Fedora4 system to the CentOS5 on a new hard disk. Actually, the Fedora4 system is constantly being hacked due to my lazy update. So i prefer a fresh install of CentOS5. I am not clear what files need copy and what does not need for ease and for avoiding possible backdoors.
I have just updated to karmic, and I found that my external hard disk partitions, previously mounted under /media/disk and /media/fat are now referenced by something looking like a UUID, namely /media/7b096ea4-60ee-46b1-95cd-1851b051c40d and /media/4951-95D9.
Is there a way to revert to the old settings? Any application relying on the files on the external hard disk has now stopped working. While I certainly could just change reference (assuming the UUID does not change every session), I'd rather use the old names if possible.
I've 2 computers (one at the job, one at home), different motherboard types but same chipset, having AM2 AMD CPUs but different clock speed. I don't have (I don't want to buy) internal hard disks for these computers.
I would like to buy one external USB HDD and install the latest Ubuntu. I will carry this HDD to my job and my home. Is it possible to use this HDD as boot HDD on both computer? Even they are not same just similar? Is this a problem for Ubuntu?
my old pc died not long ago so I retrieved its hard disk and bought a USB enclosure. that HD had a ubuntu 9.04 partition and an XP one. Something must have gone wrong somewhere as, although i could still boot from jaunty, I was not allowed to upgrade.
It therefore seemed to me natural perform a clean install, so here's what I did:
- on a win7 computer, I inserted a 9.10 bootable disk
- with usb-disk creator, I wanted to install via a spare image so re-formatted the HD
- I couldn't install a mythbuntu 9.10 after that as I giot an error message ("can't mount the drive" or something similar). yet, in win7 the HD is recognised.
So, what am I doing wrong? Are USB HDs not included as USB devices that you can make bootable? Or should I be installing a !straight" ubuntu version, then install MythTV?
My ubuntu login window seems to be chrased and seems no way to restore it. I was planning to move ahead with reinstalling it but could any1 tell me how can i copy data to external hard disk. I am in Mannual restore section with promt staying at root@ubuntu :/#
I have Red Hat linux server with update 8. Explain me in detail how to connect external hard disk to linux server so that it will detect it. Also let me know how can i come to know whether the linux server has detected it. Also how to copy the linux server harddisk content/data to this USB External hard disk
I have an external hard disk with lots of big files and a lot of small matlab script files .m. I would like to grab all the files inside that harddisk that have the .m extension or the *.mat file extension (both are matlab files). Of course this is a -first-find the *.m files script and -then copy the files into the hard disk.
What I do not know is how I can also keep the structure of the folders containing the *.m and *.mat files when I will copy them in my local hard disk. As this external hard disk contains 2TB of data it is not possible to copy all the files first and then remove the unnecessary. So I have to find and copy only the files I need but with also keeping the tree structure that the external hard disk has.
I'd like to know if there is a software or a distro which does the following: Imagine having two PCs. What the software should do is allow to turn one PC's hard disks to be accessed as external hard disks. It would be great if I could tell which USB port and which hard disk should be accessible like this. Now when everything is selected properly one could just plug in the other PC's USB cable and have access to the selected drive.
I have got a hold of a extra hdd along with a hdd enclosure. I have tried looking for information on how to install linux on to one but haven't been completely successful on my search. So I turn to all of you. I was also wondering if its possible to have it were I can use it on multiple computers so I can use it for computer repair.
