General :: Cannot Mount USB Stick

Sep 9, 2010

i am running Ubuntu 9.10. sometimes my USB device is auto detected and shows up on my desktop other time it is not detected?? anyway i am trying to figure how to Mount it. read about the ETC/FSTAB file and i may need an entry there. following is a copy

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

[Code].....

i did try to update with an entry similar to the cdrom. my fstab is read only so no update. i have read other USB mount problems but not sure about any.

Debian :: Unable To Mount USB Stick

Jun 13, 2011

When I plug in my USB stick (with fat32 filesystem, labeled flash8p1) and then try to mount it from the Places menu, I get an error box that pops up: Unable to mount flash8p1 Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc1,missing codepage or helper program, or other errorIn some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so

I don't understand what the dmesg is telling me, but here it is for those who may understand:

$ dmesg|tail
[14076.617192] sd 8:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through
[14076.619599] sd 8:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through
[14076.619620] sdc: sdc1
[14076.623348] sd 8:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through

[Code]....

I just got my Gnome-flavored Squeeze running this morning, and I'm still working out the configuration. I have disabled automounting and autobrowsing of removable media, but anyway this problem was occuring when I had automounting enabled. I have the OS installed to a 4-GB microSDHC card plugged in to the front of the computer. The computer is a Toshiba Mini NB505.

edit: And now, I just plugged the flash8p1 into a different USB port, and it mounted from the places menu. I wonder, though, if this is related to the fact that I had first mounted it from the command line.

Ubuntu :: USB Memory Stick No Auto Mount?

My 16gb usb memory stick now fails to mount. The device can be seen in gparted but partition is shown as unknown. Tried to format but error message popped up "failed". The device is shown in dmesg see below. I had tried to use the device to create a bootable usb but this did not work and the problems happen there after.

Ubuntu :: Change Mount Directory Of Usb Stick?

Jun 12, 2010

My usb stick continually automounts at /dev/sda10, and for a certain operation I'm trying to do I need it to be mounted at /dev/sda (or sdb, sdv, etc); is there any way to change it's mount directory?

As a bonus question, or rather the real question, what I'm really trying to do is format a bootstrap partition as shown here

Code:
Command (? for help): p
/dev/sda10
# type name length base ( size ) system
/dev/sda101 Apple_partition_map Apple 63 @ 1 ( 31.5k) Partition map

Slackware :: Manually Mount A USB Stick In Console?

Nov 14, 2010

I'd like to be able to manually mount a USB stick in console (before X is started) and I can't seem to find a good way to do that. I'm not too smart about HAL and UDEV and I don't want to undo the auto mount feature when X is running but still be able to manually mount and unmount as necessary; like for installing patches and packages after an install or version upgrade. It seems like there should be an entry in /etc/fstab and a directory in /mnt or /media but danged if I can find something that points the way.

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Mount Usb Stick From Konsole (lenny)

Nov 19, 2010

Due to a bug that will be fixed at squeeze (I'm running lennyx64), I can't mount ntfs partitions from gui interface (or else, directories with non-English characters will be ignored).

So I'm mounting with disk-manager (hd partitions only), or from konsole. Obviously, mounting from konsole, is the only option for usb flash sticks.

Suddenly, just out of the blue, today debian stopped mounting ntfs partitions from konsole. Since this was my only option for mounting safely my friend's sticks, I have a big problem right now.

I can't figure out many things from the error message:

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Impossible To Mount A Usb Stick As Non-root User?

Feb 11, 2010

Although I can perfectly mount any usb device (stick or disc) as being root, as a user I am not allowed to perform any such action! I have modified the corresponding fstab entry to look like:

Code: usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto,user 0 0 and I have also made sure that the user is a member of the disk group, but without any luck. My system is OpenSuSE 11.2 (with KDE 4.4, but the problem is the same regardless I am attempting to mount the usb device via the GUI or through the text (c/k)onsole).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Label USB Stick So It Will Mount At Unique Points?

Mar 1, 2010

I have a few generic USB sticks lying around, and a few more SD/microSD chips that I use with openSUSE. Is there any way to label/ID them so they mount at unique points in /media, so I don't blast one accidentally? In mkfs.vfat there is a "-n volume-name" that looks promising, but I can't find a way to set that after the mkfs.

Ubuntu Installation :: USB Stick Install "Cannot Mount CD-ROM"?

I'm doing a USB stick install and when going through the installer, after selecting keyboard origin it tried to mount the CD-ROM drive instead of the USB port. I dont have any blank CDs so a live CD isnt an option. It's booting from the USB to get to the installer, just seems like the installer doesnt realize it needs to do the same.

Hardware :: Unable To Mount USB Stick "Only Root Can Do That"

Apr 21, 2011

Just recently uggraded from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04... I'm not liking 10.04!!

It's messed with my KMail, and NOW I find that when I insert a USB stick, I get the message:

"An error occurred while accessing '7.4 GiB CANON_DC (vfat) [/media/Ext3]', the system responded: mount: only root can mount /dev/sdi1 on /media/Ext3"

What the H**L happened... in 9.10, I put in the stick, and could instantly view/copy/etc. from it in Krusader...

Same result with a USB HDD...

I've read a bunch of posts, and nothing really says how to have Ubuntu simply mount whatever I give it to read... That's what I'm after... I made myself part of the Admin and root groups, but that only changed the error message to show that the system recognized what device I'd plugged in.

It's the lil' things, and 10.04 seems to have a few... So, tried to mount it:

:~$ sudo mount /dev/sdi1 on /media/Ext3
[sudo] password for dkolars:
Usage: mount -V : print version
mount -h : print this help

General :: Mount External USB Drive In Debian To A Mount Point Based On The Volume Name

May 5, 2011

How do I configure my Debian installation to mount external USB drives to mount points based on the volume names of the drives? For instance, if I have a thumb drive with the volume name of "SWORDFISH," how do I have Linux mount it at /media/SWORDFISH? I'm aware that this can be setup in FSTAB, but that requires that I know the UUID of the device beforehand and that I take the time to set each external device up in FSTAB first. That does nothing for me when I have a thumb drive that has never been plugged into my computer before.

This seems to be setup by default in Ubuntu/Kubuntu, but is not working for me with a fresh installation of Debian Squeeze and KDE4. I've spent the past 2 hours Googling for a solution and have turned up nothing. UPDATE: My results are inconsistent. Sometimes Debian mounts devices to mount points based on the volume names, and other times it gives them generic mount points (e.g. /media/usb1).

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?

General :: Mount Nfs: Mount(2) Input/Output Error, Virtual Box Involved?

Feb 11, 2010

I'm not really sure this is the right category for this post...

I've been thinking and reading but I really don't find a solution, and this is why I decided to post here. I'm not a newbie using Linux but I know absolutely nothing about nfs and related stuff. If explanations are not clear/precise I'm sorry and absolutely open to explain myself better (I'm really desperate, at this point).

I'm running a Debian in a VirtualBox inside a RHEL5. To supply space to the virtual machine I'm trying to mount a disk (? maybe not?) that I created in the RHEL.

In RHEL: I created a directory /some/path/dir and I granted access to it from the VM (edit /etc/exports file and restart the nfs service)

In Debian: I created a directory to be used as mounting point (mkdir /other/nice/path/dir) and I tried to mount (mount -t nfs -v redhat:/some/path/dir /other/nice/path/dir). What happens next is the following:

mount.nfs: timeout set for Thu ...
mount.nfs: text-based options ...
mount.nfs: mount(2): Input/output error
mount.nfs: mount system call failed

Now, this Input/output error is too vague to trace where the problem is, but I really have no idea about how to go more in depth (are there logs somewhere? What should I look for? ... ...).
