Whenever I right-click on a mounted usb drive, I have the option to "safely remove" it. However, it I choose this option, I inevitably get the following error message:
Unable to stop drive

I'm currently using Lucid, but this happened on Karmic as well. The way I see it, the result I would like would be either:
1. The "safely remove drive" command just unmounts the drive (I can't imagine what else it does anyways, besides give me this stupid error)
2. There is no "safely remove drive" option.
Noticed this in both Ubuntu 10.04 & now Mint 9, both Gnome. I didn't have PCLinuxOS2010 KDE installed long enough to experience it so I don't know if it's a property of Linux or part of Gnome.I have two users, both myself and my wife, and I noticed thatn I mount an internal SATA drive I can only see/access it under the user that mounted it. In order for the other user to see it I need to un-mount the drive. Drive is a 1TB SATA formatted NTFS.I can't imagine this is normal and the 2nd drive is shared for pics/data/etc. Strange quirk is that my install is on a partitioned primary drive, 320gb, that also has Windows on it so the OS must access the drive in order to boot - both users can see the mounted 215gb Windows NTFS partition simultaneously.Is there a setting that needs to be changed or is this normal?
Every time when I right click the USB drive icon and select "Safely remove drive" I always get this error message
FAILED: No such file or directory even though the icon does disappear from the desk top. I have been ignoring it since the USB drive seems working fine.Now I have a more serious problem. When I tried to copy files onto the USB drive it says "read only file system" and doesn't let me. I tried unplug and plug the USB key but that doesn't help.
I have just installed Xubuntu and suprisingly it did not ask me to create a partition within its installer like Ubuntu does. So now, I am left with 150mb of free space. I want to expand that amount. The problem is, I do not know where it has been installed on. I have a C and an E drive. Currently, the C drive is mounted and the E drive will not mount even if i press the mount button. Does anyone have a solution?
My cdrom drive was working until yesterday it didn't mount at all. It said 'special device /dev/scd0 does not exist'. I went and checked in BIOS and the CD rom was not identified there as well I would like to know if there is a workaround for this problem. I am using an ACER aspire 4520 laptop with only ubuntu 9.10 on i
I have been having the hardest time with this. I am trying to mount a share on a Ubuntu 10.04 system from another Ubuntu 10.04 system.
The system with the share has the OS on one drive and then data on a second internal sata drive that is mounted. The share is on this second drive.
I can see it when I browse networking from the other system but it won't mount. I get a message saying that the folder contents can't be displayed. I do not have permissions necessary to view the contents...
I have tried setting the share folder permissions as permissive as possible but can't get passed it.
I use davfs2 to mount a Webdav drive at startup. It mounts correctly and I have read access to all files my account gives me access to. One big problem though: I can't create of modify any file. I know it is not a user account problem because everything works well when I mount the drive in Windows 7 using WebDrive.
Here's the entry in /etc/fstab to automatically mount the drive:
I am trying to access a mounted secondary drive through FTP, and when I try to connect to it I am not able to see any of its contents. Any suggestions? I am using Gadmin-proftp to configure. I can point it to any other folder on the main drive and see it perfectly.
I have two machines. Desktop and X61s. I have a drive on Desktop called Ianthe. This is in /media. This is remotely mounted on my X61s machine (a laptop), as /media/Ianthe. It automounts when I boot it up. BUT, the same drive looks different when viewed on the remote machine. An example is a certain directory, which when viewed on Desktop has 21 files in it, but when viewed on X61s has on 7 files in it.
If, on the X61s machine, I go to Network > Windows Network > LBBARNET > DESKTOP > Ianthe and navigate to the relevant folder, I can see all 21 items. But if I mount it, I can only see the 7. I have tried rebooting X61s, but it remains the same. The permissions on all the files in the folder on Desktop are identical, so I can't see any permission reason why this should happen. And, if I copy one of the files on the Desktop which doesn't appear on mounted view on X61s then the copied version appears immediately on both views.
I observed a problem with the Yahoo Mail Attachments.If I want to attach a file from a drive that's mounted (one of my windows partitions), the file who I attach to mail seems attached but after I send the mail the recipients do not receive my file. First I thought it was a mistake, but then it happened several times. Does anyone know any workarounds except copying the files who you want to send to an Linux drive and then sending it from that location?
How do you find the device (e.g. /dev/*) for a mounted USB drive in Linux (Ubuntu 10.04)? I'm trying to format a Cruzer USB flash drive, and when I plug it in, the icon for the mounted filesystem appears on my desktop. However, when I open GParted, it doesn't list the filesystem as an option to partition.
The recommendations I've found through Google include monitoring tail -f /var/log/messages, which they claim should list the device name when the drive is mounted, but this never happens for me. I've also read that the USB drive would usually be linked to /dev/sdb, but this appears as a broken link on my filesystem. How else would I find the device?
About every couple of days, my linuxfiles mount will disconnect. I notice this because I have created a symbolic link from my user's home folder to this drive. So when I log in, if the drive isn't mounted I get the following errors:
Quote: Could not update ICEauthority file /home/johnathan/.ICEauthority Quote:There is a problem with the configuration server. (usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256)
I keep having to remove the mount folder and then readd it. Then I have to reapply the permissions for it to connect back to those files. How can I correct this? This only happens to this mount, the others stay connected with no issue. Also, when I log in and I have this issue... I cannot get out of this or log off unless I shutdown my laptop... is there another way? I guess I could do an init 3 from the CL.
I just got ubuntu installed for the first time, I tried mounting my hard drive to my desktop so i can have easy access to it, but when i restart ubuntu it always dissapears and i have to go to places then click on the hard drive again to mount it to my desktop.
Is there a way of keeping this on the desktop without having to do this all the time? I have the latest ubuntu version.
I am running Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS with Kernel 2.6.32-22-generic-pae I was originally using usbmount to autmont the western digital external usb drive I had attached to the system and it was working great. However, while I was adding files to the drive i deleted all of the directories and files that came on the drive out of box such as 'autorun.inf' and an autorun directory containing an icon for the drive.. when I rebooted the drive was no longer mounted, I tried to un/reinstall usbmount a few times but it still didnt work, so I wound up adding the drive into my fstab, my fstab line reads like this
I have a secondary harddrive that is auto mounted through fstab at startup in the /mnt/media_drive folder. I have not had any problems out of it until today.
I was trying to get the computer to act as a PS3 media server. I installed pms-linux, couldn't get it working, removed that, installed ushare, didn't like that, uninstalled that and reinstalled pms-linux. Now the PS3 sees the folder, but nothing else does. When I ls -l the /mnt/media_drive folder, I get this:
What happens when you wipe a hard drive which has a partition that is mounted? I was using ubuntu 9.10 live CD but I had one partition on a hard drive mounted. Then, I started to wipe the entire hard drive with random characters using dd. Only later I realized that I hadn't unmounted that partition. what could have happened? Could the Live CD have been damaged?
I've some icons of mounted devices on my desktop. I want to display only some of them which I need. All drives are mounted automatically while booting or by scripts while logging in.For example: I've 4 mounted devices and 4 icons on my desktop and I want to have 4 mounted devices but only 2 icons.There is possibility of hiding all of icons in gconf, but I want to hide only some of them.Is it possible?
I'm facing some issues with mounting the cd and usb stick in Gnome: once the hotplug device is discovered Gnome displays multiple lot (5+) notification windows (i.e asking about the opening application) and also causing Dbus errors like: "DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed: An operation is already pending".
Ubuntu just mounts once, no issues like mentioned above. This is standard 11.3 installation, where should I look for the cause?
For some reason, the second hard drive (sdb1) is not automatically mounted:
rick@rab-1:/mnt$ sudo fdisk -l Disk /dev/sda: 500.0 GB, 499989348352 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60786 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0x000c17f6
Before I installed Ubuntu, I installed the RAID software to handle 4 500 GB hard drives - so there are supposed to be two mirrored drives. I'm not an expert in using RAID. I'm assuming it is correctly configured. I only "see" two drives. sda has Ubuntu etc. How can I get sdb1 mounted? I've tried using the palimpsest program but I'm afraid I screw it up. Do I need to re-format sdb1?
I have a line in the fstab file which automatically mounts a network drive every time I start up Ubuntu. I browse to a text file on the network drive and open it using gEdit and make changes to it. Then, when I hit the save button, a bright red warning appears:
Could not save the file [path here] gedit cannot handle file: locations in write mode. check that you typed the location correctly and try again. This also happens if I do save as. Then, after this error appears, the file actually disappears (gets deleted) from the network drive and in order to save it, I have to select save as again and type in the original filename. The line in my fstab file is:
Hard drive is connected to my Inspiron 1525 via USB, plugged in and I'm not seeing the new drive mounted. Restart doesn't fix things and manually trying to mount /dev/sdb1 doesn't work either. The drive I got is preformatted as NTFS and I've been using a logical partition formatted as NTFS as a sort of share drive between my Windows partition and Ubuntu partition, so I know I have NTFS set up properly. This is the hard drive I'm working with for reference.
My old server machine running Ubuntu 6 experienced hardware failure, so I built a new machine with spare parts and decided to install 10.10. I used the 2 HDDs from the old machine and decided to use existing partitions for the 10.10 installation. I specified the existing partitions on a 250 GB PATA drive for root, /boot, /home, and swap. For some reason when I booted up 10.10 for the first time, the other HDD (750 GB SATA) was mounted as /boot. I never specified the second drive to be used for anything during the installation, so I have no idea why this happened.and how can I change the mount point for /boot? I would like the highlighted partition in the attached screenshot to be /boot. I really hope nothing on the 750 GB drive was overwritten in this whole process, because it contains all of my photo and video backup.
While installing OpenSUse i created a seperate drive for my personal files. Instead of mounting it to /home i mounted it to /usr/.....please tell me how to mount it back to /home user so that it has my files only
I added a 1TB USB drive to a Red Hat 5.3 system. I added the following line to the /etc/fstab to automount the drive at startup.If I manually the mount the drive (mount /mnt/external), I can access and read/write to the external USB drive without any issues. My problem is that during the startup process after a reboot, the drive is not being mounted automatically.
I have a chrooted account setup for my ssh server. However, I am trying to allow this user read only access to access on a mounted hard-drive and more specifically a specific folder from that mounted drive. I would also like to have this drive be mounted for me in my normal environment with write access.
Why would gparted not show a mounted partition (and unassigned space)? This is on a Sandisk Sansa e270 which mounts it's data on /media/Sansa. I can utilize the music files but the player won't work. I'd like to reinstall the player software but the Sandisk utilities won't even install (in Windows) if the player software is not working. I thought it would be easy in linux but Gparted doesn't show either the mounted partition or device software partition and it used to so.
