CentOS 5 :: 250 GB USB Drive (Fat 32) Not Mounting Automatically?

May 11, 2009

I'm running:CentOS release 5.3 (Final)

when I plug in a Small USB key, hotplug sees the new device, mounts it in userspace and creates a link on the desktop. The user can open the link and read and write to the USB key. I have tested 3 different usb keys and they all work. When I plug in a USB 250 GB drive (Lacie), also fat32, it doesn't mount:

May 11 12:25:29 tinkerer kernel: SCSI device sdf: 488397168 512-byte hdwr sectors (250059 MB)
May 11 12:25:29 tinkerer kernel: sdf: Write Protect is off
May 11 12:25:29 tinkerer kernel: sdf: assuming drive cache: write through
May 11 12:25:29 tinkerer kernel: SCSI device sdf: 488397168 512-byte hdwr sectors (250059 MB

However, I can mount the drive manually as root. The problem is that the user cannot write to the device if it's mounted by root.Is this a problem with hotplug/udev or another way that I can make this device available rw to the user?

Hardware :: Mounting One USB Drive Automatically Unmounts Other

Feb 6, 2010

I just formatted my iomega 250 gb external HD to ext3. This is where i store media, such as music. What I am attempting to do is take all the music from my 5th gen 80gb ipod (rockbox firmware), and transfer it back onto my external drive, as all my data was (naturally) erased during the format. However, as soon as I plug in my ipod it mounts as usual... but after about 15-20 seconds my external drive unmounts. When i do a 'sudo mount dev/sdc1' it says sdc1 does not exist. How can i fix this? what is the problem? I have my ipod set on /dev/sdd2 and the external drive at /dev/sdc1, each with their own mount point. They each work perfectly independently. I have tried switching usb ports around and rebooting.

General :: Automatically Set Write Permissions On Mounting A Usb Drive?

Aug 15, 2010

When I mount an external usb drive on linux (CentOs4), the permissions are by default set to read-only. Since there are multiple users on the computer who need to use the external drive, I want everybody to have rw permission for the entire drive. I also want them to be able to mount the drive if the computer has accidentially been shut down. They can use sudo mount to mount the drive, but this will only give them read permission, and I obviously don't want to allow sudo chmod.

Is there a default setting that I can change so that every new external usb disk automatically gets rw permissions?

General :: Mounting Windows Drive Automatically In Ubuntu?

Mar 16, 2011

I have dual boot on my laptop. First OS is Windows XP and second is Ubuntu 10.10.

When I click on places menu in Ubuntu, I can access Windowz XP Drives.

If I access some pdf file or document while in Ubuntu which is in Windows XP Drive, then it will come in Recent Document in Places menu.

Now I restart Ubuntu and click on Recent Documents and click on the document which I accessed in last session ( before restart ).

It says Unable to Open Document.

Then I click Places again and access my Windows XP drive. Then again I click Recent Document and click on document, I am able to open the document.

My guess is this happens because my windows drives are not mounted automatically when I start Ubuntu. How can I mount Windows drive automatically when I start Ubuntu.

General :: Automatically Mounting With Wide Open Permissions A FAT Formatted USB Flash Drive?

Feb 18, 2011

I have a netbook running Ubuntu Netbook Edition and I would like a USB flash drive to be automatically mounted whenever I plug it in. The drive is FAT formatted. It mounts when I plug it in but all files are only writable by my user, other users only have read access. I understand that I need to add a corresponding entry to the /etc/fstab file. I've added the following so far:/dev/sdb1 /mnt/USB_DRIVE vfat

Firstly, is that appropriate so far? I've created /mnt/USB_DRIVE as root. Next, I'm not sure what options I should be finishing the line with, especially to get all users to be able to write to the drive.

CentOS 5 :: Auto Mounting An USB Thumb Drive?

Nov 26, 2009

I would like a USB thumb drive to be automatically mounted whenever I insert the drive into my PC (previously I had been mounting it manually with the 'mount' command). I gave the USB drive a unique label with e2label. I added an entry for it in /etc/fstab. This works in the sense that if I run "mount -a", the drive will be mounted. However, it still isn't completely automatic. Am I missing something? What else do I need to do?

CentOS 5 Hardware :: 2TB Drive Installed RAID1 Not Mounting In Fstab

Aug 15, 2010

I have installed a 2TB drive in my dual PIII 866 with 750MB ram. The drive is properly installed and I have configured the drive with 1 partition in RAID1. The array loads fine, but when I add the entry to mount the /dev/md2 /data/repository the following error occurs The filesystem size according to the superblock is 488378000 blocks The physical size of the device is 488377986 blocks Either the superblock or partition table is likely corrupt I have run fsck manually with no errors reported. I have removed the partition and rebuilt the array. The array assembles properly and I can manually mount the /dev/md2, but as soon as I add the entry to the fstab I get dropped to a shell after a reboot. Not sure where to go now?

Ubuntu :: Automatically Mounting Encrypted Partitions ?

Nov 24, 2010

I've created some encrypted partitions using Disk Utility, and would like them to be automatically mounted when Ubuntu starts up. Is there a guide to this anywhere?

I've gathered that it involves /etc/crypttab and possibly /etc/init.d/cryptdisks, but haven't had much success so far.

Ideally, some of the partitions would mount early in the boot process, while some of them can mount after I've logged in.

Ubuntu :: Automatically Mounting A Network Location

Nov 26, 2010

If I can't get this sorted, I really can't use Ubuntu so pleeease help. I'm a complete newbie, as in, about 2 hours using ubuntu so far. Generally things are going well. I am trying to create a link to my windows xp workgroup where all my data is stored (I was surprised that linux could even see it!) I mounted a volume on the desktop apparently... that worked fine until I rebooted and it had disappeared. it was fairly annoying that I had to go back into the network and re-mount the volume. How can I get it to stay put, even after rebooting? I have limited to zero knowledge of linux/ubuntu so you may need to break it down for me.I tried using 'Storage Device Manager' as someone suggested but emmm I didn't understand a word of it. In fact there weren't many words. Only acronyms

[URL] I don't understand it at all...

Ubuntu :: Lucid Automatically Mounting Windows Partitions?

May 16, 2010

Fairly new to Ubuntu (started with Karmic), now dualbooting Lucid and Windows 7. Lucid is automatically mounting my NTSC partitions, which is pretty convenient since I store all my media there, but I recently deleted one of the partitions and just extended the other one. Now Lucid is still trying to automatically mount the partition that no longer exists and giving me an error message every time I boot up. Not really a big deal, just a minor annoyance, but I'm wondering what I do to make it realize the partition is gone.

Ubuntu :: Automatically Mounting Removable Devices When Plugged In

May 26, 2009

I want the following behavior in kubuntu 9.04 when I plug a device (USB stick or CD disk):

1. It should be mounted automatically for me. Now it isn't, though it appears in fdisk -l output: Code: Disk /dev/sdd: 8006 MB, 8006926336 bytes
16 heads, 32 sectors/track, 30544 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 512 * 512 = 262144 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x9b12d290
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdd1 * 16 30544 7815232 b W95 FAT32 and if I mount it manually, all goes OK

2. If I mount manually my CD disk and then press the eject button on my drive nothing happens until I manually unmount the drive. But I want it to open immediately

All this worked for me in kubuntu 8.10, and broke with the upgrade.
My fstab entries Code: /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
/dev/sdc1 /media/usb vfat noexec,codepage=866,utf8,nosuid,nodev,quiet,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=077,user 0 0

Ubuntu :: Ext4 Partitions Not Mounting Either Automatically Or Manually?

Oct 21, 2010

I have various drives and partitions that I have been mounting through fstab, but sometimes I had to do it manually, but now, I can't get them to mount at all. At first I thought it might be a disk failure, but booting to a Live CD shows all the drives working fine. when the entries are added into fstab, $mount -l shows them as mounted to their relevant mount points, but the data does't show in either terminal or dolphin?

Typing $umount /dev/drive always returns /dev/drive not mounted.

When I comment out the entries in fstab and reboot and try a manual mount, I always get /dev/drive already mounted or /mount/point busy. $mount -l does not show any mount entry points for the drive. My /home/user partition is now full as I can't save data on the other drives, so I don't know if this is an issue. Also I use a mixture of encrypted partitions and non encrypted partitions, but this wasn't an issue before. Checking some of the logs didn't show any errors. The problem seemed to start when gdd was saving data to a partition mount point I thought was mounted but wasn't. I have since removed that data and even created a new mount point.

Debian :: Mounting An FTP Address To My File System Automatically During Boot?

Apr 7, 2010

I'm having difficulties mounting an FTP address to my file system automatically during boot. After a bit of research I have discovered a package called curlftpfs, I've installed this package using aptitude and I had no errors.

I've successfully mounted an FTP address manually using curlftpfs at the command line and proved to myself that this is working as it should...However, I can't get this to mount automatically and I am receiving the following error during boot when I try and mount it through /etc/fstab...

Error connecting to ftp: Failed to connect to (IP address of server): Network is unreachable

My research indicates this package should be able to do this.

I'm still a learner when it comes to Linux, but could this be because TCP/IP services are not started at the time of mounting the filesystems? I've tried a continuous ping at this computer whilst it is booting and I don't get a response until after /etc/fstab has been processed. If this is the reason, can I start them these processes earlier?

Another option would be to have a script/command run when the computer boots, but prior to MySQL loading. If this is possible, it would also satisfy my problems.

Fedora :: Mounting A Hard Drive That Already Has An OS

Dec 18, 2009

I have an 320GB hard drive with F11 installed. Lately, I got a 1.5TB new hard drive, on which I have installed F12. Now I want to use the 320GB as a second hard drive since I have lots of data on it. My question here is as I boot my desktop, how does it recognize to boot from the 1.5TB and consider the 320GB as a secondary? Is there anything I need to setup in BIOS? My motherboard has one extra SATA connection left for a second hard drive.

Fedora :: Mounting 2nd Drive At Boot?

Jul 30, 2010

Code:

/dev/sdb /home/Jo/Desktop ext4
But this doesn't work, is there a glaring error here ?

Various threads suggest permission restrictions could be the cause but i have had no success with them

Fedora Installation :: Not Mounting Second Drive?

Jun 18, 2011

I just switched to Fedora (from Ubuntu) and can't seem to get Fedora to automount my old drive (which is my old Ubuntu drive). I tried the following with no luck (in fact, when I did this, it chocked during boot and went into emergency mode:

In /etc/fstab, I entered:

/dev/sdc /media/UBUNTU_DRIVE defaults 0 0

Another odd thing is the UBUNTU_DRIVE directory just disappears after reboot (and I know it was there before rebooting).

I have two additional drives in my tower, and both do show up in gparted, so I'm not sure why they're not getting mounted.

Why can't Fedora auto mount secondary (internal drives) automatically?

What can I do to tell it to auto mount the secondary drives (I have two) automatically?

Ubuntu :: USB Flash Drive Not Mounting?

Feb 25, 2010

My USB flash drive has stopped working with Ubuntu.

Normally when I remove it I unmount it first, but the last time I just unplugged it. After I unplugged it, it started not working.

When I put it in a windows machine, it shows up as drive E: but says "no disk" when I try to access it.

In my Ubuntu machine I can see it as USBDrive under Places > Computer, but it's unmounted. When I click mount nothing happens.

Ubuntu :: Updated To 10.04 - Mounting Ext Drive And Usb?

Apr 30, 2010

I just updated to 10.04 from the previous version and I'm encountering two main problems: First, on boot, after grub, I get the following message: Quote:"Disk drive for /hdba/sda6 is not ready yet or not present" "Continue to wait, or press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery" It won't go past that (I've waited 30 min) If I press S then I get tis other message but it skips after a few seconds:

Quote: "Disk drive for /hdba/sda7 is not ready yet or not present" "Continue to wait, or press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery" If I press S then I have an ALMOST working system. You see: I have an external USB hard drive, shared between XP and Ubuntu with all my files in it, and it won't mount. It's a simpletech and it was working just before the update and it loads, mounts and unmounts perfectly on windows and on another laptop I've got running crunchbang!. I can see the disk in "Media" but says I have not enough permissions to see its contents.

Ubuntu :: GRUB2 Not Mounting Drive?

Jun 10, 2010

I'm having a problem on startup where GRUB seems to time out attempting to mount my main drive. Here is the error it gives me:

Quote:

Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:

-Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
- Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)
- Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)
-Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)

ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/b1517926-aba4-47d1-81f0-42ca5dd36257 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!

I am given a initramfs shell. Sometimes waiting a couple of minutes and then typing 'exit' works. However, I've noticed if I do this:

my laptop will boot.
