Ubuntu :: 3 U3 Flash Drives Won't Mount Or Freeze System, Or Won't Unmount?

May 15, 2011

I have 3 u3 type flash drives, 1 Memorex and 2 Sandisk Cruzers, and one non-U3 (JDSecure).The purpose is file storage.All four work perfectly on Ubuntu 10.04 and XP.I have continual problems with the U3 devices on 11.04. Problems vary from not being able to open the flash drives causing screen to freeze until I remove the device from the hub, or I am unable to unmount the device causing the desktop to freeze until devices are removed.Sometimes I am able to access files in the flash, before the freeze.The non-U3 device works perfectly on 11.04, 10.04, and XP.Sounds like a system problem to me. I have google searched this to death, but can't find a solution.

Ubuntu :: External Hard Drives - Error "Cannot Unmount Because File System On Device Is Busy"

May 19, 2011

Having problems with external hard drives. I may be wrong, but I suspect they originated with an upgrade to 10.04 last Christmas. Around that time I also started using Amazon's S3 storage system, and, as a consequence, I stopped using my WD 80G external drive, previously used to backup my important files.

A week or so ago I decided to start using the WD drive again. I can't remember exactly what I did, but it wasn't happy - never caused any problems before. When I plug it in, the on-off light as the front keeps flashing on and off, and when I try to remove the drive I get the message: Error unmounting volumne An error occured while performing an operation on "My Book" (Partition 1 of WD 800BB External): The device is busy

Details: Cannot unmount because file system on device is busy Assuming the device had died - it's about 5 years old - I bought a 160G Samsung S-Series drive - my but they do look neat! Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to have solved my problem. I plugged the new drive in, and it happily appeared on my desktop. It seemed a good idea at the time, but I then started to format the drive - using the default option of FAT. All went well at first, but then the format process stopped.

My new Samsung drive now seems to be operating pretty much as the WD device, I can't copy to the drive, and attempts to unmount it generate a response similar to what's happening with the WD drive. Currently, although plugged in, I can't see the drive on my desktop, although it appears under Places. However, when I try to mount the drive, I get the message: Unable to mount SAMSUNG A job is pending on /dev/sdb1

Ubuntu Installation :: USB Flash Drives Won't Mount?

After a bit of a rough install, I got 10.04 up and running on an Intel D845GRG motherboard. All seems to be working fine except for USB flash drives. My USB mouse and keyboard work fine, but the two sticks I have (Kingston and PQI) will not mount.

Debian :: Flash Drives Auto Mount To Wrong Filesystem

Jun 10, 2011

Sometimes when I plug in a USB flash drive, it is mounted to /dev/usb0 instead of /dev/drivename. This poses a problem for me because I have applications that depend on files I keep on flash drives, and having to frequently change the file paths is difficult. I haven't been able to find anything on this topic with a cursory search on Google or through the Debian reference. Heck, I don't even know what /dev/usb0 is (though I would like to learn, in the interest of being less of a noob). This is happening on a Squeeze system running Gnome, so I believe nautilus is what's responsible for auto-mounting my flash drives.

Beyond that, I don't know what other information I should provide; if you need to know something else, ask me (and perhaps tell me how to access that information). Someone on IRC suggested that I didn't have my drives set to mount in /dev/, but I have no idea how I would go about fixing that. If there's a configuration file that deals with this sort of thing, chances are I haven't touched it since installing this system. Debian installer sees usb drive as cd drive, so it adds it in fstab, but with wrong file system options (udf,iso9660) which is not the one your flash drive uses.

OpenSUSE :: System No Longer Responds To Removable Media Such As Flash Drives And Insertions Of DVD/CD Disks?

May 20, 2010

Through some recent update, which one I am not sure, my system no longer responds to removable media such as flash drives and insertions of DVD/CD disks. Whereas before, for instance, if I inserted a USB flash drive, the "Device Notifier" would pop up, tell me that a new device had been detected, and ask me what I wanted to do with it, now nothing. "My Computer" (sysinfo:/)does not update either. The kernel knows the device is there, since I can see it when I do "lsusb". OpenSuSE x86_64 11.2.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Unmount USB Flash Drive

Sep 5, 2009

I've recently purchased a 4gb "ultra speed" flash drive. It reads and writes just fine on both my laptop and desktop. Both of which are running Ubuntu 9.04. However, when I go to unmount the drive from my desktop system, the drive icon on the desktop disappears, but it remains in the "media - File Browser".

There is one change in the file browser though. When I unmount the drive, the "eject" symbol disappears from next to the drive in the "media - File Browser" but the drive icon itself remains. The light never extinguishes on the USB drive, and when I click on the icon that remains in the File Browser, the USB drive mounts itself again and reappears on my desktop and the eject symbol reappears in the File Browser.This drive unmounts just fine from my laptop.

Code:

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 046d:0870 Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Express
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 058f:6387 Alcor Micro Corp. Transcend JetFlash Flash Drive

Ubuntu :: How To Unmount Flash Drive On /media/_"[

May 20, 2010

I think my 4GB Cruzer flash drive has got a bit corrupted as it suddenly has started mounting at /_"[ instead of something along the lines of /45C1-8FE6 (can't remember the actual number). See the gparted screenshot attached.

So I thought I'd delete the partition, reformat and relabel... but gparted won't let me do it. When it tries to unmount, I get an error message:

Code:

Actually, I just figured it out whilst writing this. I used a umount command in terminal with escape characters, specifically:

Code:

That unmounted it so that I could reformat and relabel.

Ubuntu :: Automatically Unmount Encrypted USB Flash Drive When Device Is Unplugged?

Apr 21, 2010

I formatted the USB flash drive using Karmic's Format Disk utility (right-click on a volume, select "Format..."), and selected "Encrypted, compatible with Linux (FAT)" from the "Type" drop-down menu.It mounts correctly when I plug it in, and I can access the files just fine.When I unplug the Flash drive without using the 'Safely Remove Drive' option, the icon on my desktop changes its name to '2.0 GB Encrypted', instead of disappearing and unmounting like my unencrypted Flash drives do.

I would like to have encrypted Flash drive treated in the same way as my unencrypted Flash drives, which disappear and unmount when unplugged, even if the 'Remove Safely' menu option isn't used. What can I do to accomplish this?NOTES:When I plug the encrypted Flash drive in, the following line shows up in the output of 'mount'. 'secure' is the name I gave the disk during the format process:

Code:
/dev/mapper/devkit-disks-luks-uuid-302db16c-c6e2-4dd9-a259-436437c76475-uid1005 on /media/secure type vfat

Fedora :: Mount And Unmount Data Partitions

Jul 29, 2011

I'm in the process of building a new Fedora machine. I use the machine for a VMWare server, the file server for the house as well as a Linux desktop for work.My current machine has a single 1.5GB hard drive. The new machine will have a mirrored RAID drive(2TB). I'm also contemplating using a smaller 250GB drive for the OS installation. I would then divide up the 2TB drive into /home and /var/lib/vmware partitions where the bulk of the data would reside.The goal is to be able to unmount the /home and /var/lib/vmware partitions when I need to upgrade the OS version with the data intact and remount them once the new install is complete.

The goal is to keep the family network file shares and my Virtual machines intact while reinstalling the new Fedora OS from scratch. In theory it should work. I just want to mak an (in)sanity check to ensure it will work in practice.

General :: Vanishing Mount Points On Unmount?

Jun 19, 2011

When I insert an SD card in the reader, slackware creates a mount point and mounts my card volumes. On unmounting the volumes, the mount point vanishes. How do I achieve this manually?When I attempt to mount a volume using the mount command, the mount point folder must exist and the folder does not vanish on umount. Is there a way to create a mount point if it does not exist? and ensure that the folders vanish on umounting?

Fedora :: Regular Users Not Able To Mount / Unmount Floppy

Jun 17, 2009

I had this all hashed out in previous versions of Fedora, but since I have moved the Mrs over to F10 this problem has come to the surface yet again.The Mrs is a strait user. She does not do command line and there is not a chance in a hot place that I could convince her to do it. Now we have her on the F10 system and we, once again, can't get her to have the right Kung Fu to be able to moun/unmount the floppy drive using the computer icon on the Gnome desktop.

What has changed and how do I get this function back for her? She uses this for business files, so this is somewhat on the urgent side.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: SD Card Unmount / Mount On Copying Files

Aug 13, 2011

I have a build-in card-reader in my notebook. When I insert a sd-card the card is mounted but as soon as I start copying the files to the harddrive, the sd-card will unmount and than mount again. Every time I start copying I have the unmount followed by a new mount. I tried with different sd-cards and I have the same problem. Card reader works fine on windows. But now I don't have windows anymore on this notebook so I need to use the card-reader on opensuse.

Ubuntu Security :: Ecrypted External Hard Drive Partition Won't Mount Or Unmount?

Nov 15, 2010

I've been running Linux for a year on our family computers (one desktop, one laptop and two netbooks). I've run into a problem with the encrypted ext4 partition (270GB) on a LaCie external hard drive which also has a NTFS partition (50GB) which is not encrypted . First two times I tried using the encrypted ext4 partition (from two different computers) it worked fine but now I can't access it at all. I can still access the NTFS partition.Encrypted external hard drive partition will unlock but won't mount (or unmount). The computer says "Opening 320GB Hard Disk" but after a minute says, "Unable to mount location. DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply"Disk utility (GUI for gparted I believe) states that the encrypted partition (/dev/sdb1) is unlocked and the underlying partition (/dev/dm-0) is not mounted but it has a "busy circle sign" on it that will not turn off. The NTFS partition on the same drive mounts and accesses normally.

But if I try to unmount the NTFS partition, it says: "Unable to stop drive. One or more partitions are busy on /dev/sdb"If I try to shut down the computer, it is unable to shut down because (I assume) it can't shut down that drive either. So I have to just turn off the computer.fdisk states that /dev/dm-0 doesn't have a valid partition table [full output attached]fsck suggests: "Filesystem mounted or opened exclusively by another program?"ps axuf shows some processes running on /dev/dm-0 but killinghem doesn't release the drive either. [full output attached]I checked /etc/blkid.tab (suggested in one vaguely related thread) and there's no actual file only a broken link pointing to /dev/.blkid.tab (which doesn't exist). I tried deleting this link and rebooting but that didn't change anything.when I finally gave up my data as lost, I tried to format the partition (using Disk Utility) and it refused saying, "One or more block devices are holding /dev/sdb"

SUSE / Novell :: How To Mount And Unmount Floppy Within Desktop / Dolphin Filemanager In KDE 4.1?

Feb 23, 2009

Anybody knows how can I mount and unmount a floppy within the desktop and/or dolphin filemanager in KDE 4.1? If I run dolphin I can see a floppy icon on the left, clicking on it seems to activate a reading of the floppy, then I have to go to /media folder and click on /disk folder to display the floppy files, then if a right click on the floppy on dolphin the only option I get is to hide the floppy shortcut, there is no option for unmount the floppy. I tried to make a desktop shortcut to floppy by right clicking on the desktop folder and selecting new device floppy and entering /dev/fd0 on device location, and clicking okay. Even that does not have the unmount command when I right click on the desktop shortcut, so the floppy gets stock in mount state.

also I dont see an applet or the so called plasmanoid when I click on the plasma icon on the right of the task bar and click add widget, on kde 3.5 I have the media applet on the task bar, it worked like a charm, I give a 1000 thanks to the developer of the media applet.

Any ideas on how to mount and unmount my floppy? It is a standard internal floppy, which is connected to the standard floppy controller on the motherboard. The only way to have access to it is logging into kde 3.5 and have the media applet/widget in the taskbar, and then works like a charm, I can mount it or unmount it any time. But I would like to try the new Version 4.1.3 (KDE 4.1.3) "release 72.4" that I'm running. I believe this is the latest from the opensuse 11.1 KDE 4 STABLE repository, so I know I have the latest patches for KDE 4.
