Software :: IPhone 4 Won't Mount (LMDE) - Unable To Mount Location: Unhandled Lockdown Error (-5)
Jan 6, 2011
I just installed Linux Mint Debian Edition on my friend's laptop. The biggest problem is getting his iPhone 4 to mount. On libimobiledevice.org it shows a cool video of a guy managing his iPhone with Linux thanks to libimobiledevice. libimobiledevice.org also says libimobiledevice supports the iPhone 4. But when he plugs it in, he gets an error that says:
Quote: Unable to mount location: Unhandled Lockdown error (-5) It's a serious issue and needs to be resolved ASAP. ***EDIT*** If this is a hardware topic, any mods can feel free to move it.
im trying to get a network setup i followed the instruction via gentoo wiki samba what i have done
then i did chmod 777 to the shared folders on both machines went into nautilus it sees the folder but it will not mount the folder showing the error msg:"unable to mount location failed to mount windows share" ive been searching unbuntu forums opensuseforums and google for an answer to this issue but as of right now anything that i have tried to do has failed and nothing seems to be working.
I have recently set up an ubuntu installation on an old PC. After some fiddling with both it, and the windows 7 machine, I have managed to share all of my drives. However, when attempting to access them from ubuntu, only 2 of the 4 hard disk shares will mount, with the other 2 failing with a Unable to mount location, failed to mount windows share error message.
I have a problem in my ubuntu 10.01 that it can't load a drive/volume in ubuntu. When I tried, it said: "Unable to mount location Error mounting: mount: /dev/sda1: can't read superblock". And when I boot my pc with 'Windows', it said : "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" under a blue screen. What can I do to solve this problem?
I have installed ubuntu 10.10 and the Samba addon to configure my shares to my Windows terminals.This is what I got
Firewall off (utf disabled)
Internal Sata /dev/sda1 (EXT4 FS)
External USB HDD /dev/sdb1 mounted at /media/SG1500GB (EXT4 FS)
I have two shares
1. //home/test - Which I can see and access with no problems (can't write to it though even though I set the share as writable?, but, I can read from it). This is available to everyone. My windows terminal can see this folder and access it. This is on my main 80GB internal drive /dev/sda1.
2. //media/SG1500GB/Music. I set this up for everyone full access and I can see it at all my Windows machines but,I can't get into the folder. Windows keeps giving me an error stating network path not found.I also try to access it via the Nautilus (Places/Network/system/music) and get an error message "unable to mount location, Failed to mount windows share". This drive is mounted per the disk utility.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 running Ubuntu v10.04 with a wireless card.My desktop is a Dell Optiflex running WinXP.The desktop is connected via ethernet cable to a Linksys wireless router. Certain folders on the desktop are set for sharing. Up until early last week I was able to access the desktop folders from the laptop with no issues.Suddenly I am now getting this error "Unable to mount location Failed to mount Windows share" whenever I try to access the desktop folders from the laptop.I suspect an upgrade is the culprit, but not sure.
i'm trying to connect to the three other machines in my house but am having quite a hard time doing so. i've never had a problem in the past with ubuntu, but, with 9.1 and windows 7, things have gotten a bit harder. i'm running 9.1 and my roommates are running windows 7. i've installed, set up and configured samba and i can see the computers on my network, but any time i try to access either of the drives, it says unable to mount location: failed to mount windows share.
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.
I on a dell latitude c500/c600 and running 9.10 and have a maxtor 160 gb external hd that wont mount right. it shows up in / but when i click on it i get the error message:unable to mount location can't mount file. could someone give a suggestion to get this to work.
I have a computer running Ubuntu 10.10. I am using it to share many hard drives connected to it. I am using Samba. I have successfully shared many folders to one Windows user. I am attempting to share other folders within the shared folders to another user as read only but have not had any success. When I attempt to connect to one of the shares from another computer running Ubuntu 10.10, logged into an Administrator account with the same username and password which I setup on the Samba share I get the error: "Unable to mount location" "Failed to mount Windows share"
"Unable to mount iPhone DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.InvalidArgs: Mountpoint Already registered" The above error appears upon plugging in my iPhone 3GS using a USB connection on Ubuntu 10.04. Attempting to transfer tracks to the iPhone (using Rythmbox) results in this error: "Error Transferring Track Error while getting peer-to-peer dbus connection: The name :1.140 was not provided by any .service files"
The interesting part is that I can unmount the iPhone get back into Nautilus and the iPhone icon will still be there on the left side pane. Unmounting from Nautilus does not get rid of the iPhone icon until I physically disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone. Clicking on the unmount/eject icon next to the iPhone icon in Nautilus removes the unmount/eject icon, but it does not remove the iPhone from the left side pane. My other USB devices, such as the 2TB external iOmega hard drive, exhibit identical behavior. I'm guessing that this is a gvfs bug since it appears very similar to other gvfs bugs that I've found from a couple of years ago. I am using gvfs 1.6.2-1ubuntu1~ppa1.
My iPhone used to sync work perfectly using this same Ubuntu PC as late as November 2010. There were no changes made to the iPhone, only updates to Ubuntu -- I'd like to emphasize updates; no new software was installed on this Ubuntu PC.
I was quite pleased to see that Ubuntu 11.04 now loads and reads the contents of my iPhone 3GS. (Once I connect the phone to my netbook, Shotwell and Banshee would recognize the cell-phone and give me options to manage my data.Alas, that joy has been very short-lived. As of the most recent updates, something appears to have 'broken' this functionality. [TODAY's DATE: Monday, 30 May, 2011],
Now when I connect the phone Nautilus fails to mount it, and I consistently get the same error message: "DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error. NoReply:Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)"
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 some shared folders on my laptop, most of which I can access from any other machine in the house. But one returns an error every time from any PC. I open the Places menu, select network, choose the machine and get a set of shared folders. But when I try to open this one I get an error message "Unable to mount location. Failed to mount Windows Share". All the machines are running Ubuntu 9.04 or better. No problem with any other shared folder, and the permissions are the same for all.
I worked around it by creating another folder, copying everything across, and sharing it with the usual perfect result.
I'm totally unable to play or mount audio CDs and unable to use video DVD's on my box right now. When I insert an audio CD I get a dialog box saying:
Unable to mount disc: Location is not mountable
and if I check messages in the Log File Viewer I see the following text repeated (save for the last line) a couple of dozen times.

on a similar but ultimately unrelated thread someone was asked to enter a few commands so I tried them and the following was the output:
main@Amber:~$ ls /dev/scd* /dev/scd0 main@Amber:~$ sudo mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom0
An error occurred: Could not open location; you might not have permission to open the file. As far as I can tell I have the relevant CSS libraries installed I'm lost without being able to play CD's and DVD's on my system.
i try install fedora 10 from cd live. But i can't. the partitions are unable to mount. i recive a message:
DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error. No Reply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
And from windows boot, and works. why no mount if the live-cd did this?
I have two Windoze 7 laptops (i know, i'm evil) one Windoze Vista desktop, one Android 7" tablet, one Windows mobile 6.1 PDA and one Ubuntu 10.10 laptop. everything can read and write to everything except for the Ubuntu machine. i Can't see the Ubuntu machine from windoze or the droid, and like wise, my windoze and droid can not see the Ubuntu laptop. I keep getting the error "UNABLE TO MOUNT LOCATION", "Failed to retrieve share list from server."
this is what I have tried. Followed about 20 videos on you tube (to no avail.) Edited my smb.conf file (to no avail.) Uninstalled then reinstalled samba (to no avail.) Smashed my head into the screen several times (to no avail.)I was able to get 9.10 & 10.4 working O.K. But 10.10 has got me stumped. I did a search through this forum, but nothing seems to work. I don't restart Samba, I restart the laptop (better?)
i have 2 systems one is ubuntu 10.10,another windows xp,both are connected on samelan i installed samba in ubuntu 10.10 i want access sharing folder from ubuntu(one desktop) ,which is(sharing folder was ) in windowsxp(another desktop) and vice versa(reverse) i click places>network,here 'windows network ' when i click this 'windows network ,2 folder are there like 'MSHOME','WORK GROUP'. my windows xp system was (mycomputer>right click>computer nametab>here showing 'work group=MSHOME'
Have a home network consisting of a Desktop and a Laptop Both Running 10.4. The desktop has a usb hard drive attached that contains all files music, videos, photos etc. Have gone in and set up the share of the drive in the desktop and changed all the permissions etc. When I open network on the laptop the hard disk is visible but when i double click to access I get the following error message: "Unable to mount location" "failed to mount windows share"
I would love to dump most of my Windows boxes in favor of Ubuntu but I am a little weary. My concerns are the following:
1. I can live without most of my Windoze software but there are a couple of programs that I may need to have. I looked at Wine but I am not sure how this works or if it works with all Win installs. Do I actually run my win install and install the win app on my Ubuntu box?
2. I can see my Windows 7 workgroup along with the boxes but everytime I try to connect I get the following error "Unable to mount location" - "Failed to retrieve share list from server". I have tried everything including creating a share on the Windows box with full permissions. (Oh, the boxes that I cannot connect to are Win 7 64 bit, I can actually connect to my Win XP 32 bit box).
3. Will I be able to use all of my files that I have created on on my Windows machines whether 32bit or 64bit?
4. I am actually a MS developer. Is there any way to run SQL Server with Ubuntu?
I have no idea what I'm doing so here goes: I installed Fedora and clicked the "encrypted" box during the process. What I want to do now is "browse" the volume using "File Browser" but I only get messages like, "Unable to mount location, org.freedesktop.DeviceKit.Disks.Error.Failed: Not a mountable file system". Why cannot I not see the files? I have the password. I would like to be able to move, delete, rename, etc files but that seems impossible because I cannot access the drive.
on 10.04 I clicked to share my music folder with the network (other computer also having 10.04) and it installed samba for me. I restarted expecting to find sharing working as it had on the other computer by doing the exact same thing. But for some strange reason I can't access the shares on either computer through the network workgroup. It just says "Unable to Mount Location".
Running Ubuntu 10.04 and I'm trying to re-install Mac OSX back onto my MBP. I'm running competely off of GRUB and I have no other partitions for any other OSs running. Popped in my MAC OS CD and came up with this error.
Unable to mount location Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: block device /dev/sr0 is write-prtected, mounting read-only mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sr0, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
How should I go about with removing Ubuntu, and re-installing MAC OSX?
