Ubuntu :: Cannot Mount Partitions Anymore - Error Mounting: Mount Exited With Exit Code 1: Helper Failed

Aug 24, 2010

First of all: it's been more than 12 years ago since I worked with Linux, and a lot has changed in the meantime. But I considered it a challenge to install Ubuntu 9.10 and lateron upgraded to 10.04 LTS without any troubles, until now:

Except my main partition ("/") all other partitions fail to mount. All NTFS partitions from my other OS and also 2 other linux ext4 partitions I've made are not accessible anymore. and, what bothers me the most: I deleted those 2 new linux partitions in the meantime because I couldn't access them initially because Root was the owner (Duh! root is standard disabled in Ubuntu, right?). After an attempt to try to automount all partitions following the help guides I got now big grey errors on my splashscreen while booting, telling that an error occured with e.g. /media/Backup because it is missing or it cannot be mounted, with 3 options below: waiting, skipping or using a command prompt to solve this. I always choose Skip for safety.

Now if I want to see the content of all my other partitions I got a popup telling me unable to mount e.g. /media/Downloads and the message included:

Ubuntu :: IPhone Won't Mount Anymore - Folder Is Empty

Mar 9, 2011

I have an iPhone 3GS that was mounting a couple of weeks ago but now does not. Looking in /mnt I see a folder for the phone but the folder is empty. Phone is listed when I perform

steveneddy@machine:~$ mount
/dev/sda1 on / type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-ro)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
none on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
none on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw)
none on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw)
none on /sys/kernel/security type securityfs (rw)
none on /dev type devtmpfs (rw,mode=0755)

Also of note - I took a couple of photos off of the phone at work using an XP machine - just browsing the folder in Explorer, no iTunes. I believe this is where the trouble started. I will monitor this thread the best I can through the week and weekend - I will do my best to post any terminal output or commands at the earliest possible opportunity.

Ubuntu :: USB Mount Point Is Not Volume Label Anymore In Lucid

Apr 30, 2010

When I plug in a USB in Lucid, it gets mounted at /media/usb0 , etc. I'd like it to mount as /media/<volumelabel>. I know HAL is gone and things have changed, but I'd like to still have the USB mounted at /media/<volumelabel> as it used to, as I got scripts that use those mount points.

Ubuntu :: Computer Wouldn't Mount NTFS Drives Anymore

Jul 27, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS x64 on my computer. This also the first time I'm working with a linux distribution, so I'm sorry if I don't understand everything.Yesterday Ubuntu was running perfectly. Today I tried to install nvidia driver, and after that I started rythmbox. That was the moment I noticed my computer wouldn't mount NTFS drives anymore. What is weird cause yesterday it did mount them, and I didn't change anything (atleast I think I don't). The exact error Message is:Unable to mount location

So I searched the internet and they said to other people they should check System>Administration>Users and groups.So I did check it and it said account type: custom, when I clicked on the button change, which was next to it, It didn't do a thing.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Can't Mount NTFS Partitions Anymore

May 5, 2011

I used to be able to mount my external hard drive's ntfs partition by simply clicking on it, but now I can't anymore... I know that the last time I've used it with windoze, I had to force shut the **** thing down 'cause it was frozen real good (pretty unusual right !?!).The thing is, with ubuntu it sees it and mounts it no problem.

Debian :: After Upgrading To Squeeze - Can't Mount My HDD Partitions Anymore

Oct 23, 2010

Actually, the /root- filesystem still gets mounted, for all the others I get the following message:

When I type

I get:

But this only happens when using my custom kernel ( When I use the kernel which was automatically installed (2.6.32-5-amd64), the problem doesn't occur.

Is there a kernel option I should have turned on?

I checked the UUID-numbers from the error messages with the output of "blkid" - they match. The rootfs is on sda2 (which gets mounted without error) - so I tried applying the fstab mount options of sda2 to the other partitions - same problem still. what makes the root partition so special? Is it because it's defined by grub.cfg?

Fedora :: Mount 15 Partition - Suddenly Shut Down During An Update - System Won't Boot Anymore

Aug 8, 2011

I recently switched from fedora 14 to 15. Today my computer suddenly shut down during an update, as I thought it overheated I decided to clean the cooling system and reapply thermal paste. However, now the system won't boot anymore ("kernel panic - not syncing : VFS: unable to mount root FS on unknown-block").

I would like to either solve this booting problem, or mount the fedora 15 filesystem and recover some files. Whichever is easier.

I have another drive with fedora 14 (antec below) which boots fine:

Ubuntu :: How To Mount Iso Files

Feb 6, 2011

Is there any tool that mounts iso files and lets you view them as virtual drives? I already tried Gmount-iso, AcetoneISO, Furius ISO Mount and the custom command mount to mount my iso in a directory. All three tools failed to mount my iso and I don't understand why. Mounting using the command succeeded but inside the iso I have some files that I want to execute but are not marked as executables and therefore I cannot execute them.

Ubuntu :: 'Files' Mount Disconnects / Solution For This?

Mar 25, 2010

I've posted about this previously, but I am unable to find that post...

I have a separate partition: 'files'.

This has the mount point of: '/files'.

My /home/johnathan folder is a symbolic link to:

So when this particular mount point '/files' is not available I get errors stating ICEAuthority and that /Desktop and /.nautilus can not be created.

If I log in as root, I can not mount the drive using System > Administration > Disk Utility

I get the error that '/files' can not be mounted because it is un use.

Sometimes, if I wait a while while logged in a root it will 'magically' mount and work again... then I can login as my profile.

I love Ubuntu that it keeps all of your settings and program settings within the profile. So, if I have to reformat or reinstall Ubuntu I simply recreate the symbolic link to /files/installed/backup/johnathan and all of my settings are back. All that is left is to reinstall my apps and I am back to where I was before reinstalling.

So, how can I correct this? I do have two other partitions that have mount points, but they do NOT do this like '/files' does.

I've even replaced the UUID in '/etc/fstab' with the path tot he partition: '/dev/sda2'. This also didn't work.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Delete Files From NTSF Mount

Jul 4, 2010

I've got a 250gig removable drive mounted on my Lucid 10.04. I'm having a problem deleting files. It starts by saying "Cannot move file to trash. Do you want to delete immediately". So I click Delete. Then I get "Error removing file: Input/output error"...and my files stay. This is the last grasp Windows has on my household :/ This is on my media machine and I'm converting it this weekend...but I'm trying to backup some stuff on this drive which is still on the old Windows partitioning and formatting. I just need to delete some larger files to make room for my new backups

Ubuntu :: Loss Of Files Followed By Inability To Mount Drive?

Aug 18, 2010

We've had a headless server running Ubuntu for a few weeks now and it's been fantastic - we've been able to access it from all of our computers and it's making life so much easier having one central box to put everything in. Until yesterday, where we noticed that some directories on the 1TB HDD were empty that were previously full of files. Restarted and the directories are gone, leaving only the root directories. Restarted again and Ubuntu doesn't even recognise the disk.

We have Ubuntu installed on a 250GB HDD with the 1TB hard drive mounted on (as?) /srv and all of the data is on there. Before Ubuntu stopped recognising the disk it would appear in Disk Utility saying that the file system was corrupted and that there was an issue with the superblock - I've found some ways of attempting to fix that but none are working now that Ubuntu isn't able to find the disk. I've checked the physical connections and they all appear to be working fine. I can hear/feel the hard disk spinning. Some users haven't backed up the files they put on the server so I'd prefer to try anything non-destructive first and save their work. I'm hoping that the HDD hasn't totally died... but now that Ubuntu can't see it I'm concerned that that might be the case.

Ubuntu :: Burning DVD - CD In Natty - Won't Mount And Show Files ?

Jun 6, 2011

I have always used the same programs to burn media in Ubuntu -- Brasero and DVD/CD creator. But after Natty install I get all the actions of burning media and then things hang at the last part with "Creating image Checksum" and the computer just goes into a loop forever increasing the time remaining. If I cancel and eject, the media is invalid. It won't mount and show files.

Ubuntu :: Can Put Personal Files On Another Partition And Have It Mount In /home

Aug 4, 2011

I've been playing around with stuff lately, and I was thinking that I could theoretically move my personal files to another partition, have it mount under /home/User... then change the system partition to 6 or 7GB and go about my merry way...That way, if I need to reinstall the os, or when the next release comes out, or even install another primary system, I could just wipe the system partition and keep all my data on the HD...just make an fstab entry like:


/dev/sda3 /home/User btrfs default 0 2

or something, and them BOOM! it's done. I am the master of my domain.

General :: Mount Two Loopback Files As One Filesystem?

Jul 26, 2011

I'm trying to run a persistent Debian distro on a USB thumbdrive, with the persistency data written in a mounted live-rw loopback file. However, the drive has to be formatted FAT32, and that poses a 2GB maximum limit on files, so I can't use the full 3GB space that is left on the drive after the Linux install. Can I make two loopback files and format/mount them as a single filesystem? If I can't I guess I'll have to repartition the drive, which I'd rather avoid.

But now I don't have windows anymore on this notebook so I need to use the card-reader on opensuse.
