Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: according to mtab, /dev/sdc1 is already mounted on / mount failed. Not sure what happened but it worked fine till last reboot. It's a 250g NTFS drive named MEDIA device /dev/sda1. why it won't mount now.
I used Wubi to install Ubuntu 10.10 onto my laptop alongside Windows 7. I need to access my windows harddrive, however, so I used NTFS Configuration Tool to mount the drive. However, whenever I reboot, it fails to mount and I actually have to go back into NTFS Config Tool, delete the old mount, and remount it. This is tedious. My /etc/fbstab file looks as follows:
I have two HDD in my computer and one is in NTFS which in linux it show up and the name is sdb1 and when I try to get it to mount the drive it give me the following error at the bottom of the screen: hal-storage-fixed-mount-all-options refused uid 1000
I've been working for a while to help a friend re-activate her system after a Windows crash. I tried every way I could to restore Windows, but the system is thoroughly bollixed. The data is still there on the disk, and you can read/write if you boot off of external media. I backed up her data that way.
Details if you need them, but for now suffice it to say that I finally got her up and running by installing Xubuntu Lucid in a dual-boot setup. However Xubuntu isn't automatically recognizing and mounting the NTFS partition the way I would expect it to. I had her run a few commands in the terminal, and here's what she got.
Ordinarily I'd use mkdir then mount to solve this. But I'd like to check a few things before I go and do that.
First, as I understand it if a Windows instance is not shut down properly it can make it difficult for Linux to mount the partition. The usual solution is simply to reboot Windows and then shut down properly, but that's impossible in this case. Will that affect the mkdir/mount solution?
Second, the fact that /dev/sda1 doesn't even show up in fstab causes me some concern. Would that be a problem for mkdir/mount?
And third, how to I set it up so the NTFS partition mounts automatically?
I have been trying to use fstab, writing a script in /etc/init.d to mount my external ntfs usb drive. I have had absolutely no luck and I have tried just about every solution I could find on the web except for writing a udev rule which I have never done so I am not exactly sure how.
My solution for the interim is to put the mount command in the rc.local file. That works, but I don't understand why I can use fstab to mount it. Putting it in the fstab gives me errors like "unknown file system" or just "An error occurred during mounting of drive" and then the booting stops. I tried using both ntfs and ntfs-3g.
I have an Ubuntu 10.04 box that accesses NTFS drives along with ext4. Recently, I switched from ntfs-3g to Paragon NTFS driver, which is proprietary, but free of charge. It feels quite faster on my internal drives. Now I have a problem with external eSATA NTFS drive. When it is detected, I mount it via Nautilus GUI, but it gets mounted with the ntfs-3g driver. (It can be mounted via command line with the Paragon driver, but this is less convenient. How can I configure my system (is it Gnome or some system-wide configuration ?) to mount all NTFS drives with the Paragon driver?
I have installed three flavors of linux on vmware 1.rhel5 2.centos 5.5 3.fedora 14 and also install centos 5.5 on a separate hard disk (not on vwware).
I want to mount my pen drive on linux which is ntfs. I have tried a lot on rhel5 only. Please tell whether it is possible mount ntfs on any distributions I have mentioned above? I have already installed fuse, fuse-devel, fuse libs, ntfs-3g, ntfs-3g libs on rhel5. But I still got error: "fatal : module fuse not found" "ntfs unknown file system"
I tried ntfs and ntfs-3g but the result is the same I can mount root but I would like to be able to mount as a user. When I try to mount as a user I get
Unprivileged user can not mount NTFS block devices using the external FUSE library. Either mount the volume as root, or rebuild NTFS-3G with integrated FUSE support and make it setuid root. Please see more information at [URL] Before installing ntfs-3g I was able to mount as a user but there was no rw permission. Any way to mount an ntfs partition as a user without suid as the message said?
Installed new drive in notebook, connected old one with SATA/USB cable, both are encrypted disks. It detected the old drive and prompted for password in Gnome, after entering correct decrypt password, this error appeared:
I have spent the summer and just got my few must-have Windows programs over to Ubuntu 11.04 (64-bit), got it customized with Docky (under Ubuntu Classic) and everything is SWEET. (But don't get me going on Unity dock). One problem: if I boot with my 1TB portable hard drive plugged in Ubuntu will recognize it. If I plug a portable drive in after the boot, I get this error below. I tried Mounting manually and with Archive Mount
I come from ubuntu, and, although they are all linux distros, they differ in a lot of things. Well, I just install the OS and I have a 1 TB drive for storage formatted in NTFS, I identified the device with fdisk -l, but the problem is Centos doesn't understand ntfs partition out of the box. Is there any package I need to install. I tried yum install ntfs-3g, but got an error: "no such package in repos,"
After inserting the drive into a usb port and run dmesg because the drive is not mounted all, I've the following added to the message log:

I have a x64 OpenSUSE server with two hard drivers installed. The first one is used for the / and /home partitions and the other is for backups. Ironically enough it is the backup hard drive I am having trouble with. I was having trouble writting to the drive and unmounted it to preform a fchsk, however now when ever I try to mount it I get the following error:
Just installed Slackware 13 this morning. It's been a long time since I last tried Linux, but Slack works (a lot easier than Slack 8 did back when I last used it!) quite well. I'm using the XFCE desktop and it's smooth as silk except for one odd problem-I cannot get any of my USB drives to mount. I just plugged in my Lexar 4GB USB flash drive and received an error message. Here's from /var/log/messages from when I initally plugged in the drive (I have a 500GB WD MyBook USB external drive that is always plugged in):
Any ideas or suggestions of what to look at? I'm not familiar with HAL in Linux although I've seen plenty of discussion about it and have an idea of what it's supposed to (or break! ).
I have new external usb drive which I'm trying to format to NTFS so I can also use in in windows. I've set it up using fdisk
Disk /dev/sdd: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0x604a2a7d

And tried formatting using mkfs -t ntfs /dev/sdd1
However I get the following error Cluster size has been automatically set to 4096 bytes. Initializing device with zeroes: 100% - Done. Creating NTFS volume structures. Error writing to /dev/sdd1: Input/output error. Error writing non-resident attribute value. add_attr_sd failed: Input/output error Couldn't create root directory: Input/output error
Accidentally the usb plug on my WD "My Book" got halfway unplugged and I didn't notice it. when I rebooted it, it wouldn't read the drive. I tried using G Parted to repair it but no success, it just runs forever accessing the drive and never finishes. (I left it running an entire weekend and it didn't finish) the drive is formated ext3.
When I try to mount the drive in Ubuntu 9.10 it gives this error message:
Strangely if I boot into Windows and use the ext driver I can access the drive just fine. is this something I can fix? if needed I can use Windows to do any repairs.
I have both windows and ubuntu 11.04. In ubuntu I can mount then edit NTFS drive without being asked for permission. It's not safe that way because anyone using my computer can edit my windows files. How do I make it ask for password when mounting NTFS?
I am running 11.4 from a thumb drive,mainly because something is fishy with my main hard drive, but installation is not my reason for this thread (though I think fixing one problem will remedy the other). My winbloze install is short stroked with ~50gb for OS and ~200gb for media storage. I have no problem accessing the storage from windows, but I am unable to mount the storage partition under Ubuntu. I get the following error:
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 14: Hibernated non-system partition, refused to mount. Failed to mount '/dev/sda2': Operation not permitted The NTFS partition is hibernated. Please resume and shutdown Windows properly, or mount the volume read-only with the 'ro' mount option, or mount the volume read-write with the 'remove_hiberfile' mount option.
For example type on the command line: mount -t ntfs-3g -o remove_hiberfile /dev/sda2 /media/Laptop Storage
When I run that command, I get this: su: invalid option -- 't'
I have reformatted my hard drive with allocation size 64K for a better performance on my WDTV HD media player(dealing with large files). When I mount this drive on Linux, the mount tells me that "blksize=4096".If I keep writing files usinghis default etting(blksize=4096) to my NTFS formatted hard drive, will my WDTV be able to benefit from the performance improvement of 64k allocation size ? Should I try and mount my hard drive with a larger blksize ?I did some research on google but couldn't find an option to increase the blksize when mounting an NTFS pre-formatted drive.
