Ubuntu :: Can't Mount Ntfs Partition Located On Other Hard-drive?

Dec 19, 2010

Does someone know how to reconfigure this? I have three hard drives.

1. Sata 1TB. It has Windows xp and ubuntu 10.10 on it
2. old 30G drive. It has ubuntu 10.04 on it
3. Old 120G with ubuntu 10.04

I installed the oses on each drive by disconnecting the others. So each drive has a boot record, and I can choose by pressing F11 at boot. All ubuntus can see and mount the NTFS partition except the one I installed last. It's on the 120G drive.

Ubuntu :: USB Hard Drive Doesn't Mount Automatically?

May 28, 2010

The other day a power outage affected an SSH server I have running 9.04 (32-bit desktop ed.). I have two external USB hard drives used for cron-scheduled backups (one for rsync, one for an incremental) that are connected at all times. When I reboot, they no longer mount automatically until I login to the gnome desktop. As far as I can remember, they always mounted automatically before as disk-1 and disk-2, but now I have to login to the gnome desktop and then log back out.

I never had them listed in the fstab before since they just worked, & hope to avoid doing it this way since the drives sometimes get their paths (sdd and sde) interchanged. However, is the best way to fix this to use UUIDs in fstab vs. using sde or sdd? (such as in this post: 4highlight=external+hard+drives+don't+mount+boot Or maybeust remembering incorrectly & ubuntu doesn't mount them automatically until login? Sometimes I have to reboot remotely, & this problem would cause the rsync to fill up my system drive.

I am trying to mount an external USB hard drive. I'm using Debian Lenny 5. I tried to right-click on the hard drive and then select the mount command inside the gnome desktop environment but it gives me an error. Is there an easy way to mount and unmount this hard drive?

Googled around for the solution and got this link


After this the problem got worse now i am not able to see any of the drives in the side panel. Gone through many forum and posts all discuss about external USB HDD.

General :: Setup Fstab To Automatically Mount NTFS Partitions - GUI To Set The Mount Permissions?

Feb 10, 2010

I am trying to setup fstab to automatically mount my NTFS partitions. I have used various Mount managers to create the entries in fstab. The fstab seems fine, but when mounting at boot or even via Nautilus I get the error message that I do not have permission to mount the disk.

1) Can this permission be set in the fstab file? If so what is the syntax of the fstab entry?

2) If not, is there a tool i.e. GUI to set the mount permissions?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Mount NTFS Drive After Update In 8.04

Mar 11, 2011

I can no longer access my external USB hard drive after applying routine updates this morning. It is a WD "My Passport" drive, 500 GB with the standard formatting setup. As far as I can tell there are no errors on it. Upon plugging it in I see a pop-up box "Unable to mount the volume 'My Passport'" and it provides no further information under "Details." If I try mounting from the command line, e.g. mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/sdb1 or similar, no errors appear but when I do ls on the directory it comes up blank. Also then if I try to unmount it, it tells me the drive isn't mounted. This drive mounts fine on another computer running Fedora (and all the data on it is readable). I'm guessing there is a bug in one of the updates--here is what updates I applied.

Ubuntu :: NTFS USB Hard Drive Unexpectedly Unmounts?

Feb 5, 2010

I recently updated to Kernel available from the: Mainline. The reason I have done this is because it corrects an error that prevents my web-cam from functioning (Microsoft VX-3000). So, with this kernel I have a functioning web-cam *but* I have noticed now that my USB Hard Drive intermittently now unmounts. I am unable to remount the device without rebooting Ubuntu. The drive was mounting dirty but installing NTFSProgs and running NTFSfix was the solution for that. I have disabled power management completely on my machine by editing /etc/default/acpi-support and changing SUSPEND_METHODS to "none" and both ACPI_SLEEP and ACPI_HIBERNATE to false. This seems to have made the USB hard drive take longer before it unmounts but it does still unmount. Also as a GRUB2 boot option I have tried acpi=off but this also disabled my usb keyboard and mouse and my BIOS isn't flexible enough to work around that so I cannot use that option. With these things in mind are there any other avenues I could pursue and things I could try?

Edit: It may not be "unmounting" it just disappears. Also, I could try to whitelist the USB controller in /etc/default/acpi-support if I knew how to find out what it was called but I do not know how to do that.. Yet !

Edit2: I moved the physical plug to another slot where it connects on the computer. If this disconnects again I'll swap out the cable. If it disconnects again.. I'll go buy a huge 1TB internal sATA and call it a day. ~

Ubuntu :: Non-ntfs Hard-drive - Install Windows?

Apr 18, 2011

Some time ago I reformatted my hard drive to just run Ubuntu. Now I need to install Windows XP but when I put in the install disk it says it can't find a hard drive. I'm guessing this is because the hard drive is formatted to a Linux-specific ext4/extended/linux-swap set-up. The ext4 partition is 71GB and only uses 13GB. I have 57GB free. I can see all this in Gparted but how do I now split that ext4 up and free some space for ntfs partition for Windows? Indeed is this what I should be doing? Obviously I can't unmount the ext4 bit whilst in Ubuntu.

Ultimately I want to do a complete reformat of the hard disk and just install Windows XP for the time being (I'm handing the laptop in for a hardware service).

Ubuntu :: Share NTFS External Hard Drive?

Apr 18, 2011

I've been searching for a way to do this with no luck. I've got a 1TB external hard drive I used to share over the network from my Windows desktop -- which is now a Ubuntu desktop.I've tried setting it up as a samba share, and the closest I've gotten is mount error(12): Cannot allocate memory. I've tried the suggestions (editing /etc/security/limits.conf), and that removed the warning I got from testparms but didn't fix the mounting on my mythtv box.

Ubuntu :: Mount An NTFS Drive With Full Permissions?

Jul 22, 2010

The issue I am having is that Virtual Box does not recognize my USB drives. I understand that it is related to the fact that Ubuntu cannot recognize the permissions on the USB NTFS drive. So how do I mount the ntfs drive and gain full permissions?

One post suggested that I have to join my user to the 'vbuser' group in users and groups to fix this in 9.04, but I do not have a "vbuser" group in my list of groups. I am running 10.04.

Ubuntu Installation :: Is Keeping NTFS Hard Drive Still Worth It?

May 14, 2011

It's been about three days since I've made Ubuntu my OS and I'm quite surprised to see, when I tried it first via wubi, that it actually reads NTFS partitions.It made backing up easy for me though now is it still alright that I still keep them NTFS or should I now start converting them to ext4? Except for my external hard drive.and what's the difference with ext3 and ext4? I was shown these options when I tried formatting my hard drive.

My other hard drive has two partitions which was done when I installed windows a few years back..If I would to reformat should I combine these partitions into one and make new partitions via that?

Hardware :: NTFS - Sharing Hard Drive Between Windows / Ubuntu?

Mar 13, 2009

I've got a SATA drive (formatted as NTFS) I share between an XP machine and an Ubuntu machine. From Ubuntu, I never write to the drive... I only write to it from the XP box. So, I am wondering about a couple of things:

- If I do write to it from the Ubuntu machine, will that create any problems. By that I mean, if I add, rename, edit files from the Ubuntu machine, will that negatively affect anything?

- If, from the Ubuntu machine, I set perms on the files and folders on the drive, how will that affect things when I plug it back into the XP machine?

Ubuntu :: Mount FAT32 Drive Automatically?

Jan 12, 2010

I am setting up a home server and have two hard drives. One is the main HD for system files and the other will be for personal files.

The personal HD is /dev/sdb.

I know I have to edit fstab in order to get it to mount automatically at boot, but I am having trouble with the commands.

I would like for it to mount at boot and have full read-write access from any user.
