Debian :: Western Digital My Book 1110 Not Mounting

Feb 8, 2011

Alright I am about to throw this western digital device out the door and drive over it. The back story is that I have done a Debian net install on an older tower PC laying around the office. I am going to use this tower as an FTP server to store and backup several other servers we have have. We also have an older Western Digital (WD) my book 1110 sitting here. I was planning on using the external storage as the repository as it is 1TB raided. Seems like a good plan, plug the device into the tower and instantly two new drives show up "External CD-ROM" drive: "WD Smartware" and then "My Book". When I click on the cd rom drive I get the .pdfs and executables that are stored on the device. However when I click on the "My Book" drive I get the message "Invalid mount option when attempting to mount the volume 'My Book'.".

Hardware :: Cannot Connect To Western Digital World Book Drive

Oct 16, 2010

I am using Ubunto 10-04 LTS and trying to connect to Western Digital (World Book) network drive. By signing into Mionet I am able to reach this drive on my network and remotely. Trying to run the executable resulted in the following error:

"The file '/media/Disc 1 290909/WDAnywhereAccess_3_6_0.exe' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied form an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit."

Ubuntu :: Western Digital My Book World Edition II Enclosure Failed

Mar 29, 2010

My Western Digital My Book World Edition II enclosure failed recently and as normal, WD support sucks. A friend told me he salvaged his by looking at the individual disks with Linux. How can I recover the disks, which seem to be fine.I can put them into an enclosure that supports JBOD and Raid 1 and it will see the drives when hooked up to a Windows XP system. It does not see anything on the drives but it knows they are there. I have a copy of some data recovery software Easus Data Recovery Wizard and it finds loads of data on the drives but recovery, according to the timer, will take weeks.How can I make Ubuntu see each drive and mount it?

Hardware :: Mount Western Digital USB 2.0 2TB On Debian Lenny 5.0.6?

Oct 22, 2010

user@debian:~# mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /media/cdrom
#To check what is mounted
user@debian:~# mount
/dev/sda5 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro)
tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)


The question is how do I get the system of WD to load onto Debian 2.6.26-2-686? I am guessing either the version of Debian Lenny I have is too old to be compatible?

Hardware :: Cannot Mount 2TB Western Digital USB Drive As Rw

Dec 22, 2010

I have a 2TB Western Digital USB drive. This has been previously connected to a Windows box without problem. I have connected it to my Linux slackware distro computer. It mounts OK, but is only mounted read-only. Kernel version is Linux

fdisk -l gives:

Disk /dev/sda: 1999.6 GB, 1999696297984 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 243115 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes


Why can't I mount this things read-write? I can read and write just fine to this device mounted on windows. I can even read/write to this Windows mounted drive from linux when I mount it using mount.cifs Also, mounting a USB flash drive as: mount /dev/sdb1 /mydir, works fine. I can read/write to /mydir.

General :: Formatting Western Digital External Drive To EXT3?

Sep 15, 2010

I am wondering if any of you technical guys would be willing to format my Western Digital external USB 1.5 TB Hard Drive to Linux EXT3. I am naturally happy to pay for your time and trouble and for postage. The WD drive is for storing video footage and will be connected to my Humax Freesat HD Digital TV Box(not a computer), and the Humax Box will only record high deffination programmes in EXT3 format. I've tried to do the job myself with my PC, but have failed to change my system to format in Linux.

Fedora :: Copying Data From A (western Digital) Usb Drive (ntfs Partition)?

Feb 20, 2009

I'm actually not a Linux newbie, but I'm DEFINITELY no expert either... I'm trying to copy all my data(approx 50 GB) from a usb drive(western digital 250GB) with ntfs partition in one go... The problem is that it only fails for big transfers... works fine for smaller transfers like 1Gigs or less... I have just one internal hdd partitioned into two ext3 partitions.. so I have sda1(Primary.. mount pt /), sda2(swap) and sda3(mount pt /piyush)... The usb drive comes up as sdb(sdb1).. just has one ntfs partition... I've also installed the ntf-3g drivers.... but doesn't seem to work... I've also noticed that when the machine hangs and I try to shut down, it fails and I get a message again again... (sdb1- no sense detected) or something like this... don't remember the exact message... will post the exact one if no one is able to figure out what's wrong...

Hardware :: Adding One Hard Drive To Mint 9 (Western Digital 250G)?

Oct 9, 2010

I set my mom up with Linux mint 9, and I am wondering how to add a 250G hard drive to it.(On slackware it was easy on ubuntu and Linux mint its is very difficult, because of the addresses.) Is there some easy way to add it to format/check for bad blocks. One more thing I don't want to deal with addresses so is there some easy way to do that?

Hardware :: Western Digital External Drive Read-only Under Gentoo - NTFS?

Jun 21, 2010

I bought a Western Digital 1TB external hard drive to use with a Gentoo build. It connected beautifully, mounted visibly but despite being mounted read/write any attempt to write to it produced the error "read-only file system". I chased a number of red herrings before I found that the drive comes with an NTFS filesystem and NTFS support in my kernel was set to read-only, which I think was a default setting. Simple fix was to install a different file system - as it was a new drive there was no old data to lose.

Fedora X86/64bit :: 11: Slow Boot Time / Old Western Digital Raptor Drive?

Nov 22, 2009

I'm running a dual partitioned (Vista / Fedora 11 x86_64) Intel X25-M Mainstream SSD.

Whilst Vista boots in about 15 seconds, Fedora takes around twice as long; in fact far longer than Fedora 9 on my old Western Digital Raptor drive.

Is this to be expected, or might I have some sort of configuration problem? Has anyone else had similar experiences?

Debian Installation :: Will Not Boot After Install On Areca ARC-1110 RAID

Dec 1, 2010

I performed an install using the 5.0.6 amd64 netinst cd on a dual opteron server with an Areca ARC-1110 4-port SATA hardware RAID card. I have 2 250GB drives set up as RAID 1. The debian install saw it as only one drive, just as it should. Install went smoothly, but on reboot, the system would not load.

I did some research and tried a couple of things with no luck. Like adding a delay in the grub command. It jus sits at loading system for a while then times out and loads busy box. Just to check things out, I booted into an Ubuntu live-cd and mounted the volume. The file system is there and all of the necessary files. How to use one of these cards successfully?

Ubuntu :: Mounting Digital Camera Without GVFS

Apr 25, 2010

When I plug in my digital camera, it mounts it as a gvfs-mount. I have a few problems with this:

- It takes 2 times: I have to plug it in, wait, unplug it, plug it back in before it shows on the desktop
- Don't have command line access: Nothing in ~/gvfs after mount and I cant do anything with gphoto2://[usb....]
- Cant access it from another desktop instance: gvfs-mount -l lists it when I'm on a terminal on the desktop, but not when I'm ssh'ed into the system.

Really I just want to mount, rsync photos for backup, unmount and be done with it (all this in 3 lines of a shell script that I'll add to udev so its fired when ever the camera is plugged in)

dmesg: usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hd and address 8. Configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
lsusb: Bus 001 Device 008: ID 04a9:3176 Canon, Inc. PowerShot A590

How can I mount it as a normal mount (perhaps something that automatically shows up in /media or something).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Mounting An Edirol R-09HR Digital Audio Recorder - VFS: "Can't Find A Valid FAT File System"

Apr 2, 2010

I'm having problems mounting an Edirol R-09HR digital audio recorder (as a USB drive, to read the recording files) on a system running openSUSE 11.2. fdisk or other partitioning tools recognize the device as a "W95 FAT32" drive with a filesystem code of 0b, apparently. I was under the impression that mounting this as a vfat file system should work, but the mount command dies complaining "FAT: bogus number of reserved sectors" and "VFS: Can't find a valid FAT file system." This happens even with a freshly formatted card in the recorder. The device mounts properly with Windows XP systems and late-model Ubuntu/Kubuntu systems, Any clews as to what I'm doing wrong here?

Hardware :: Hp Psc 1110 Scanner Not Found?

Mar 6, 2010

I run Ubuntu Karmic (9.10) and have a hp psc 1110 connected by usb. The printer works fine (with hplip and cups). And sane-find-scanner answers:

found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0, product=0x3011) at libusb:005:004
# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

However, scanimage -L reports "No scanners were identified. The strange thing is that the scanner used to function (with xsane as front-end) a few weeks ago. Somehow I broke this functionality, possibly when I installed drivers from HP to get better options for the printer part (e.g., switch color cartridges off). Any idea where I need to look to get it running again?

Debian Hardware :: Success Story - VHS Tapes To Digital Video Using Debian?

Feb 27, 2010

In a previous post I mentioned I planned to buy a Canopus ADVC 55 VHS to DV capture card (viewtopic.php?f=7&t=48224).

Now I have done that. And, it works like a charm using my 64-bit Debian Sid and Kdenlive! All my VHS will be saved for the future!A short HowTo: Plug in a SCART to composite adapter into the "TV out" on the VHS player. Plug in the three red/white/yellow composite RCA cables into the adapter and into Canopus ADVC 55.

Plug in a Firewire cable into the Canopus ADVC 55 and your Firewire card on your computer. Start the computer, start Kdenlive and click the connect button. Start the VHS player and click Play.

In Kdenlive and click the Record button, as fast as you can. Wait until tape is finished. Now you have a dv-file which is about 13GB per hour, so make sure you have the space on the hard drive. The dv file should then be stored as such, as the master backup. But, it is now easily converted to any other format.

I have too many home made movies to let them rot away as VHS. My previous attempt with the USB dongle only produces precompressed MPEG2 files which would have sucked. These DV files are uncompressed, take up a huge space, cannot be played as such, but! They are the raw material for any other format. If I'd like, can using Kdenlive readily make it FullHD with a few clicks.

Oh, and it works with vinyl records too!!! Then just use Audacity to edit them later. Don't buy a cheap USB dongle, buy a Canopus ADVC 55 or something similar. The quality is crisp!!!

Debian :: OS Does Not See Digital Camera Via USB

Mar 20, 2010

We've got one of those fancy, modern digital cameras and it's great for taking pictures, but I'd love to back those pictures up, too. When I connect the camera via its USB cable to my computer, the OS just doesn't "see" the camera/connection. Nothing shows up in fdisk -l. However, when I connect my mobile phone or USB HD via the same port, they show up in fdisk and can be mounted without any problem. The scary thing is that on my partner's laptop, running gNewSense (with Gnome), it (auto)mounts without any problems. The camera is a NIkon Coolpix L20 with an SD card.

Debian Multimedia :: Evolution Not Deleting An UbuntuOne Address Book

Apr 17, 2011

Previously I was running Ubuntu 10.10. I have since migrated both of my machines to Debian 6.0.1. Before migrating I backed up my previous Evolution configuration, and after installing Debian I restored it from that file. Everything worked great except that backup included my UbuntuOne CouchDB address book, which I never used. When I right click it and click "Delete", nothing happens. I'm guessing the files in .evolution that contain this information are binary because I've done a locate ubuntu and couldn't find anything in there. It's not a deal breaker, but I'd like to get rid of this unused address book from a different OS.

Debian Installation :: Jessie Netinst Fails For Chrome Book Pixel

However everytime I went to install it (after adding in the mem=4G line) it just rebooted and brought me back to the same install screen again. I just downloaded the Wheezy image again and it is installing now perfectly.
