Ubuntu :: Copying Files To / From SD Card With Partition And Windows PC
Mar 4, 2010
I have an SD card that I formatted using my Ubuntu machine to contain one raw Linux partition and one FAT32 partition. Does anyone know of a way to be able to copy files to/from the SD card and my Windows PC? Right now, when I plug the SD card into my Windows PC, the FAT32 partition doesn't appear. When I try to copy files from my Windows PC to the raw Linux partition on the SD ard, I get "bad magic number" errors on the device that I use the SD card with. Is there some utility I can use on my Windows PC to be able to correctly read this SD card? It would be very convenient to have that for travel, etc when I don't have easy access to the Ubuntu machine.
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.
I've been having trouble copying files. When I try to copy something, it starts copying, and after a few GB, I suddenly get an error. It tells me its unable to write to the disk. After this, the only way to be able to write to the disk again, is to reboot the system. I then get to copy a few more files before the same error appears. The partition in question is formatted as ext3, using opensuse 11.0 with KDE.
I record my lectures at school using my mobile phone then send them over wifi to my laptop and use a program to do volume correction all in windows. However, I want a exact copy of that folder in my home folder on my ubuntu install on a separate partition.I've been manually copying them over so far but I want to make a script that I can run to copy all new files over. I know a little bit about scripting, mounting the drive and actually copying files is easy, its figuring out how to determine new files and copy only those that I don't know how to do.
i am accessing linux through putty and i wrote somany programs in unix using putty and gedit but now i need to copy all files into windows. how to copy directory(linux) to folder(windows) without installing any softwares?If it is necessary to install software to copy files then tell me the process of using that software.
I need to copy ~300GB of drives from one Windows hard drive to another using a Ubuntu live CD. (I currently don't have enough power connectors for my Windows system drive AND both existing and new data drives. Stupid power supply.)
By Windows drive, I mean the drives are only data drive (no Windows install) but the files on the first drive were created and are used by my Windows system, both were formatted NTFS in Windows, and the files will again be used by Windows on the second drive.
Are there any pitfalls I need to be aware of, or can I literally just drag the files across in Nautilus? Is there a faster copy utility available (I know there are Windows programs that can copy faster than drag-n-drop, but I'm sure Ubu doesn't have the same problem ) Will using a Live CD cause any specific issues?
Now however its not letting me resize the Windows partition, mounted or unmounted. It currently occupies the whole disk. I would rather not reinstall the whole thing over again, but I will if I have to. Isnt there an easy way to shrink a Windows partition? I swear Ive done this before and it wasnt this hard. Could it be a problem with the Mint installer that now asks me if I want to unmount my disks before it goes into install mode? On this PC I would like to have
Windows XP Mint Ubuntu-Studio Edubuntu One of the E17 OSs Puppy Linux (to create a remix)
I am probably going to put most of the linux partitions on the second laptop drive but I want to install files on a non WIndows NTFS partition.
I got tired of dual booting on my old computer so on the new computer I am planning to run XP on VMware Player. The problem is that on the new computer neither Ubuntu or XP can "see" the FAT32 partition. I intend to use the FAT32 partition for photo images and old Windows files and need access from both Ubintu and XP.
I am facing problem in copying a large number of file 18 lakh (18,000,000) files from my personal hardisk to another hardisk each file is very small and size of folder is around 3.95 GB copying files using copy given by Windows is frustrating and I am not even able to compress file its giving me error that its not readable.And problem is I am not able to open this drive in Linux it showing me error there saying do diskchk in Windows and Windows disk check is also not able to repair this drive and goes into some mode unsolvable.Is there any way to open disk with error to open in Windows and if not any way I can copy data faster?ERROR: Disk labled EDU is corrupt go to windows and chkdsk /f there and reboot into window 2 times.
After several times install & reinstall,i got a stable dual boot vista / ubuntu 10.10.,but i can't access or even see my windows partition from ubuntu,i installed my dual boot with wubu this time,in previous installation when i didn't use wubi , i didn't have such a problem & windows partition with all my files in it (windows files,media ,etc,) was easily accessible from "places" on ubuntu . I already disabled windows firewall & other security options but nothing changed
I currently have three hard drives: (2) 150GB IDE drives (windows) and (1) 500GB SATA drive (fedora13). I'm trying to move files on the IDE drives to the SATA drive so that I only need the SATA drive. The SATA drive is running Fedora 13 and the other two were old NTFS drives that I just use for space now. So most of the files copied fine, however, for a handful of them I receive the following error:Error splicing file: Value too large for defined data type This happens when I try to copy files not only from drive to drive, but even from folder to folder on the same drive. I've read about a 2GB file size limit, but none of the files are that size. I have no idea why this is happening.
[Sorry if this is misplaced; I just couldn't think which category to put it under.] So yeah, I'm almost exclusively using karmic (yay!), but I still have to use that vista install I have smushed in a corner of my HD from time to time. Now, I installed karmic using the default, latest file system (ext4, I believe it is, right?). Last I remember hearing, that presents a bit of a problem, doesn't it?
I have Ubuntu 10.04 x64 installed and i've mounted both NTFS partitions. The first contains my Windows partition (with Windows 7 on it) and the second contains my backup partition. They are two seperate hardisks.Now, i'm trying to delete files on my Windows partition, but the ability to 'Cut' is greyed out and there's no 'delete' option at all.This only occurs on my Windows partition, but my Backup partition can execute and option; whether delete, cut etc.I assume this is either a settings in Ubuntu or something about Windows that prevents alternate O/S's from messing around with it.So how can I go about enabling the feature to delete from my Windows partition? The idea is to erase all Windows related stuff so I can reinstall Windows.
I would like to know if there is a way that I can access my files on the Windows partition using Linux because the Linux partition does not have enough space to house all the files on the Windows partition.
I've discovered that Dolphin seems to lose random files when copying many large folders.
I first noticed this a few months ago when I tried to copy my music library from one folder to another on the same HDD. It consisted of around 600 folders and 6500 files. During the copy there were no errors but after the copy I found that some of the newly copied folders were missing files. I put it down to human error or a glitch.
Yesterday I tried to copy 13 folders containing rips of some of my DVDs. Each folder basically had one film of either 700MB or 1.4GB. Again no errors showed up during the copy but I found 3 of the newly copied folders were empty.
It's not so critical with music or films but I can't afford to lose work data like this.
Has anyone experienced or seen a similar problem with Dolphin? I'm going to have to do some more extensive testing but this is not good.
The first time I noticed the problem I was running KDE4.3.4 (I think) and now the latest was with KDE4.4.0.
I am using open suse 11.4 on my dual boot laptop, and am trying to access and modify files that I have on my windows 7 partition, not sure but think they are ntfs directories. I can access and view them but need to be able to modify them.
I have Suse 11.2 installed. In Dolphin file manager I can see read files in my windows partition. But I cant create or delete any of these files as a user. I opened Dolphin as root and changed the permission rights of this windows folder so that all groups and users can view and Modify content. But when I try to create something I get the message access denied, "check your permission rights". And how can I change these permission right for my user in console mode?
I am running 8.10 desktop on an MSI Wind desktop. Everything is on the single 500GB hard drive. I also have a 4GB CompactFlash card in the system that has a working version of 8.04 desktop on it. I would like remove 8.04 from the CF card and copy/clone the currently configured 8.10 onto it as a backup just in case I accidentally trash the 8.10 installation on the HDD some time. I'd also like to be able to update the CF backup easily periodically to keep it current with the setup running off the HDD.
The HDD is partitioned as follows.
Code: ken@pinot:~$ df Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/sdb2 9843308 800448 8542840 9% / tmpfs 1032220 0 1032220 0% /lib/init/rw
My Windows XP Pro laptop has been attacked! Windows will no longer update and Microsoft Security Essentials will not update either. I've been trying to resolve the issue for over two weeks with Microsoft support, but it's just taking too long. I also tried some rescue CD options (all running some form of Linux, obviously):
- BitDefender Rescue CD (removed infections, now detects nothing), - Kaspersky Rescue CD 10 (removed infections, now detects nothing), - Trinity Rescue CD (won't load AV Engine, so can't use it to do anything).
Malwarebytes cleaned a bunch of stuff, but will not clean the final threat detected (it's supposed to get deleted on reboot, but never does). Hijack.FolderOptions is stuck in the accursed registry, and it keeps causing Windows Explorer to crash. I cannot rename files or work with them or everything just crashes.
So I'm ready to reinstall XP from scratch, and add a dual boot with Xubuntu & LXDE, which I'm already running on a much older laptop.
Question: I want to rescue the files I need. My idea was:
1) Install Xubuntu with dual boot. 2) Copy over files from Windows XP partition using Xubuntu. 3) Back up files to an external drive using Xubuntu. 4) Reinstall XP Pro and format hard drive. 5) Reinstall Xubuntu with dual boot. 6) Use Xubuntu for daily use. 7) Only use XP for those tasks that require it (TomTom updates ...)
Should I be concerned about the security risk from copying files from the Windows partition to the Xubuntu partition, and from there onto an external hard drive?
Is this the way to do it, or is there a better way? I just want my laptop back in working order. Right now I can't use it for anything.
I have installed Debian as a second OS alongside Win XP, and now I have Win XP on C drive (if viewed from XP), NTFS, my data files (mainly texts and graphics) on D drive (NTSF), and Debian on ext3. Debian sees and opens files on D.
1. If I read-write from-on this D partition from both OSes, is there a chance the data will be corrupted? 2. If I open a Windows-created TXT, GIF, JPG, HTML or other not-proprietary format file from Debian, edit it and save (just SAVE, not SAVE AS) - will this file remain readable from Windows?
Using 10.04 Netbook version. I am finding on my Asus EEE 901 that sometimes file copy just seems to freeze - seems to happen usually when copying from the built-in SSD memory to the plug-in SDHC memory card. I have tried reformatting the card and using a different card. It is not just this computer since I found the same thing on my last Asus which was the 900 model.
I am told that there are issues with Nautilus. Is there anything which can be done to improve this or is there anything else which I can install besides Nautilus? I am assuming that there is some issue related to Ubuntu's handling of SDHC memory cards.
It is becoming annoying because it seems to work sometimes and then not. When it happens only option seems to be to turn the netbook off and on again. Even if the file copy is cancelled the card seems to be unaccesible until rebooted.
Also after a certain point it seems that when I try and copy new files to the card, they appear to copy ok but obviously are corrupt in some way - when you try to play videos for instance they are faulty.
I've got a problem I've been trying to work out for a while. I have a 160gb drive, and only 15gb dedicated to Ubuntu's installation because of a screwup. I have very little resources at my disposal, as I'm using a netbook with no optical drive, and I can't seem to get the liveusb to work. It just stalls after the menu with an error message. I have no way to connect my machine to the internet, and I've been forced to transfer files from a friend's computer. I'm running out of ideas, but one I thought of was to copy the install partition over to the larger partition. I'm not sure if it's possible, or if it would make a larger install or just a copy of the same size. I just want some clarification on how I would solve this issue, even if my idea doesn't work.
To install Ubuntu alongside Windows 7, I have to shrink Windows 7 partition C:. But due to some unmovable files, I cannot shrink as much as I plan by using Windows own shrinking tool. I guess many of you who have both OSes on the same hard drive must have similar experience.
I have just installed Open Suse 11.4 Gnome, and I am trying to work on files on my windows partition that is ntfs, and it keeps telling me that they are "read only"......I check my /etc/fstab file and that it shows permissions at the end of the windows partions to be "0 0", which I was told was what was I needed to be able to work on ntfs files in windows?
