or it was not setup correctly (e.g. by not using mdadm --build ...),

Hardware :: Cannot Mount 2TB Western Digital USB Drive As Rw

Dec 22, 2010

I have a 2TB Western Digital USB drive. This has been previously connected to a Windows box without problem. I have connected it to my Linux slackware distro computer. It mounts OK, but is only mounted read-only. Kernel version is Linux 2.6.21.5-smp.

fdisk -l gives:

Disk /dev/sda: 1999.6 GB, 1999696297984 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 243115 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

[code].....

Why can't I mount this things read-write? I can read and write just fine to this device mounted on windows. I can even read/write to this Windows mounted drive from linux when I mount it using mount.cifs Also, mounting a USB flash drive as: mount /dev/sdb1 /mydir, works fine. I can read/write to /mydir.

Hardware :: Mount Western Digital USB 2.0 2TB On Debian Lenny 5.0.6?

Oct 22, 2010

user@debian:~# mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /media/cdrom
#To check what is mounted
user@debian:~# mount
/dev/sda5 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro)
tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)

[Code]...

The question is how do I get the system of WD to load onto Debian 2.6.26-2-686? I am guessing either the version of Debian Lenny I have is too old to be compatible?

Debian :: Western Digital My Book 1110 Not Mounting

Feb 8, 2011

Alright I am about to throw this western digital device out the door and drive over it. The back story is that I have done a Debian net install on an older tower PC laying around the office. I am going to use this tower as an FTP server to store and backup several other servers we have have. We also have an older Western Digital (WD) my book 1110 sitting here. I was planning on using the external storage as the repository as it is 1TB raided. Seems like a good plan, plug the device into the tower and instantly two new drives show up "External CD-ROM" drive: "WD Smartware" and then "My Book". When I click on the cd rom drive I get the .pdfs and executables that are stored on the device. However when I click on the "My Book" drive I get the message "Invalid mount option when attempting to mount the volume 'My Book'.".

Ubuntu :: Western Digital My Book World Edition II Enclosure Failed

Mar 29, 2010

My Western Digital My Book World Edition II enclosure failed recently and as normal, WD support sucks. A friend told me he salvaged his by looking at the individual disks with Linux. How can I recover the disks, which seem to be fine.I can put them into an enclosure that supports JBOD and Raid 1 and it will see the drives when hooked up to a Windows XP system. It does not see anything on the drives but it knows they are there. I have a copy of some data recovery software Easus Data Recovery Wizard and it finds loads of data on the drives but recovery, according to the timer, will take weeks.How can I make Ubuntu see each drive and mount it?

General :: Formatting Western Digital External Drive To EXT3?

Sep 15, 2010

I am wondering if any of you technical guys would be willing to format my Western Digital external USB 1.5 TB Hard Drive to Linux EXT3. I am naturally happy to pay for your time and trouble and for postage. The WD drive is for storing video footage and will be connected to my Humax Freesat HD Digital TV Box(not a computer), and the Humax Box will only record high deffination programmes in EXT3 format. I've tried to do the job myself with my PC, but have failed to change my system to format in Linux.

Fedora :: Copying Data From A (western Digital) Usb Drive (ntfs Partition)?

Feb 20, 2009

I'm actually not a Linux newbie, but I'm DEFINITELY no expert either... I'm trying to copy all my data(approx 50 GB) from a usb drive(western digital 250GB) with ntfs partition in one go... The problem is that it only fails for big transfers... works fine for smaller transfers like 1Gigs or less... I have just one internal hdd partitioned into two ext3 partitions.. so I have sda1(Primary.. mount pt /), sda2(swap) and sda3(mount pt /piyush)... The usb drive comes up as sdb(sdb1).. just has one ntfs partition... I've also installed the ntf-3g drivers.... but doesn't seem to work... I've also noticed that when the machine hangs and I try to shut down, it fails and I get a message again again... (sdb1- no sense detected) or something like this... don't remember the exact message... will post the exact one if no one is able to figure out what's wrong...

Hardware :: Adding One Hard Drive To Mint 9 (Western Digital 250G)?

Oct 9, 2010

I set my mom up with Linux mint 9, and I am wondering how to add a 250G hard drive to it.(On slackware it was easy on ubuntu and Linux mint its is very difficult, because of the addresses.) Is there some easy way to add it to format/check for bad blocks. One more thing I don't want to deal with addresses so is there some easy way to do that?

Hardware :: Western Digital External Drive Read-only Under Gentoo - NTFS?

Jun 21, 2010

I bought a Western Digital 1TB external hard drive to use with a Gentoo build. It connected beautifully, mounted visibly but despite being mounted read/write any attempt to write to it produced the error "read-only file system". I chased a number of red herrings before I found that the drive comes with an NTFS filesystem and NTFS support in my kernel was set to read-only, which I think was a default setting. Simple fix was to install a different file system - as it was a new drive there was no old data to lose.

Fedora X86/64bit :: 11: Slow Boot Time / Old Western Digital Raptor Drive?

Nov 22, 2009

I'm running a dual partitioned (Vista / Fedora 11 x86_64) Intel X25-M Mainstream SSD.

Whilst Vista boots in about 15 seconds, Fedora takes around twice as long; in fact far longer than Fedora 9 on my old Western Digital Raptor drive.

Is this to be expected, or might I have some sort of configuration problem? Has anyone else had similar experiences?

Ubuntu :: USB Digital Camera Static Mount Position

Dec 14, 2010

I have digital camera (Canon EOS 550d) which I connect to my computer using a USB cable. I can see that the camera file system is mounted under "~/.gvfs/gphoto2-XYZ" where XYZ seems to be a dynamic device dependent string that changes every time I connect the camera.The thing is: I need the mount position ALWAYS to stay the same, so my photo management program (Bibble) knows where to download the images from.I am not sure how to do this, but I guess there must be a way to configure GVFS/FUSE or whatever is responsible for mounting the camera to use a fixed mount point (like /media/camera or something).

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid 10.04 Failed To Mount

Apr 30, 2010

I've recently upgrade ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04 LTS using my system update and after it had completed installing the packages. I shut down the computer.Then after I get home, I open my computer I have found out that the system is unable to mount my filesystem. I went to manual recovery, typing in fsck -y /dev/sda1 then after it runs, it said the system is clean. So then I type control d to reboot but then it said that the system I not ready or present and I continue to wait. It seemed that there's a major issue mounting partition in my computer, I'm not sure if NTFS has any involvement.

Ubuntu :: CD/DVD Drive Won't Mount After Upgrade To Lucid?

Jun 14, 2010

I'm running ubuntu Lucid Lynx on an asus K50IJ series laptop. I'd had jaunty before and made a fresh install of lucid. My CD drive had been fine in jaunty, but doesn't mount any more in lucid. I have found numerous threads with promising-looking titles, but they either do not match my problem or their solutions don't work for me.

This is my situation: The disc will turn for a bit after inserting, then stop. During that, the little light on the drive will flash a few times, then wink out. So I guess the power supply's fine.

And when I try to mount it manually it writes:

I made ISO images of some of DVDs in a windows box and transfered them in my ubuntu and tried to mount them and there were no problem with ISO images! the problem is with the physical CD/DVD !

Ubuntu :: COWON S9 (a MP3 Player) Won't Mount After Lucid Upgrades?

Jan 29, 2011

I have a COWON S9 (an MP3 player that normally mounts like any memory stick) and I noticed that when I connect it, it won't auto mount and does not seem to be recognized by Lucid after yesterday's kernel updates.

This player has always auto-mounted without any problems until yesterday's (2011 Jan 27) kernel updates. I rebooted and made sure I'm on the latest kernel.

Anyone else experiencing things not auto mounting? I can't get it to manually mount either. It doesn't seem to be recognized at all now.

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 :: Lucid Startup Error 101 - CIFS VFS Mount Failed

May 1, 2010

I upgraded my Karmic OS to Lucid the day after it became available and have been having some troubles - I am having trouble starting the OS. Brief history: I have real troubles with the ATI graphics and spent a while trying (finally successfully) to remove fglrx and associated dependencies. I then rebooted ready to install new drivers. I now get the following error on startup:

CIFS VFS Error connecting to socket - aborting connection
CIFS VFS cifs_mount failed w/return code (-101)

For the last couple of weeks or so, I have noticed CFS errors on shutdown which has meant that I have needed to physically press the off button to turn the machine off, but since I could still operate I left that problem on the back burner "for when I have more time". Don't know if the two problems are related. Anyway, I am currently in the situation where I cannot start Ubuntu at all unless I use the install CD and try the LIVE distro.

My fstab file looks like this:
aufs / aufs rw 0 0
tmpfs /tmp tmpfs nosuid,nodev 0 0
/dev/sda6 swap swap defaults 0 0

(My PC Has a 1 TB drive and a 500 gig drive. The 1 TB drive has dual boot Vista (came preinstalled and I have a couple of games for it - else, yuk) and Linux. The 500 gig drive is a data drive). I'd rather not reinstall from scratch though may have to? I don't know of any way to repair-install the OS - maybe that would be possible too?

Ubuntu Networking :: Get Lucid Connected To An SME Server 7.4 To Automatically Mount Windows Shares?

May 4, 2010

I have beating my brains out trying to get Lucid Lynx connected to an SME Server 7.4 to automatically mount windows shares. The winbind stuff seems to work okay after I installed a restart script in /etc/network/if-up.d (kudos to OsGnuru & bobpaul for that) There is a short wait on network up before winbind can validate but that is not a show stopper. I have looked at (what I think) is the correct log for pam_mount and it seems to be running through to the end process okay. It looks like it is either not reading the pam_mount.conf.xml file or I have not configured it correctly as it just reports "No Volumes to Mount". I have appended the log file, pam_mount auth, password, session & common conf files as well as the pam_mount.conf.xml file for review.

However, there doesn't seem to be an application that will work with my camera. I've tried Camera, gtcam and Digital Camera that gets loaded while installing the version. gtcam and Digital Camera have an option for a Samsun Digimax 800 but none for my camera.

Does anyone know of an application that has my camera as an option.

Ubuntu :: Digital Camera Not Being Detected In U10.04 / What To Do?

Jun 5, 2010

I'm having some problems with Ubuntu 10.04 64bit finding my digital camera (Nikon CoolPix S4000). For whatever reason, when I plug in the camera via USB connection, Ubuntu will not detect it. The odd thing is that on my old Ubuntu 9.04 32bit install my camera was detected fine (it appeared as an icon on the desktop, akin to a flashdrive or any other mounted drive).
