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.

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.

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."

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 2.6.21.5-smp.

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

[code].....

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.

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 :: 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)

[Code]...

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?

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?

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?

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?

Fedora Networking :: Can't Connect To Storage Device Since It Has No External Connections

May 29, 2011

I just upgraded to 15 and was wondering if it was possible to specify which devices to prioritize a route through. I have my machine, a laptop, connected to my family's router for an internet connection and a wired connection to a personal router for a faster and private connection between my other two computers and a network storage device. Whenever the laptop is connected to my personal router everything goes through it and it can't connect to any external web sites. But when I unplug it and go only on my family's wireless everything is fine, except I can't connect to the storage device since it has no external connections.

Networking :: Connecting Mybook 2 (external HDD) With Laptop Running Ubuntu 10.04?

Jun 3, 2010

im having problems connecting mybook 2 with my laptop. Everything was ok and running perfectly and there was no changes in my laptop or upgrades and it stop working. I was not able to see the computers in my network then I fixed it I can see them but when I try to browse the files the OS tells me that is unable to mount location and failed to retrieve share list from server. The funny part is that if I go to Places>Connect to server and type my mybook ip address, my laptop can connect and I can browse the files. I really dont know what is the problem. My firewall is down so I dont think that is the problem. If anyone can help me with these because I know im able to connect to my mybook but i am unable to connect to any other laptop or my WD-Tv live.

General :: External Storage Back Up Failure?

Jun 23, 2011

As part of our back up strategy we back up data to two external strorage devices (NAS buffalo linkstation) via a cron job. Recently I noticed that the linkstation backups were not working and the server (via the terminal) complained about CIFS write error or something along these lines. I decided to reboot the server and this fixed the problem for one week for one of the linkstations and for a few weeks for the other linkstation.

There are no error messages this time on the server or on any of the logs that I have checked but the backups are not being made and the processes are still running for the days that backups have not been made.

the backups used to work everyday without fail until recently and no changes have been made to the script that does the backup..

General :: External Hard Drive - Poor Man's Hybrid Storage?

Mar 2, 2010

Hybrid Storage harddisks use a large non-volatile cache to save power and improve speed. I wanted to ask if there's a reasonably simple way to simulate that under Linux. Ideally there would be a FUSE-filesystem that does this, For now this is purely theoretical, but my setup would be a small home server (Sheeva Plug) with an external USB harddisk that goes to sleep after a few minutes of inactivity. To keep it powered down as long as possible, I would like to use a 16GB SD card as a cache for the harddisk, thus simulating Hybrid Storage.

The only possible solutions I found thus far were Hierarchical storage management packages for enterprise use, which are way too expensive for this task.

Hardware :: Why Doesn't Westren Digital Support For The External Drives

Jul 5, 2011

My wife (naturally without consulting me) purchased a WDC "My PassPort" portable usb drive to backup her Windows 7 machine at work. It has an NTFS partition and should be accessable from a Linux box, but she choose to password protect the drive. This apparently requires an executable to run before the drive is unlocked. WDC has provided Windows and Mac versions of their unlock utility, but when I called told they said WDC doesn't support Linux.

It seems odd to me. Are we such a small community that they just don't care? I could remove the password protection and it would probably work with linux. I own a WDC "My Book" external usb/firewire drive that works fine under linux. Just curious why they don't care enough about us to have an linux unlock program. While on the subject I will mention that this drive comes preformated with a virtual CD as one of the partitions. This is a new feature to me. I have not yet attempted to connect via linux to see what happens.

Ubuntu :: Defragmenting An External Storage Device?

Are there any tools in Ubuntu that could defragment my MP4 player (Sansa E280R)? One of the songs on my MP4 player isn't showing its Album Name or Artist Name. I know I have the artist and album name tagged onto the MP3 because I set them both & double checked using mp3tag.

Software :: VHS Convert To Digital How To Connect Hardware

Jul 2, 2010

I want to convert some old VHS tapes into digital format and I am not quiet sure how to hook up the hardware. I believe I have two hardware devices that are capable of transferring data but I need a little boost to get started. I have an NVidia 8600 gts that has a VIVO (Video In Vidio Out) connection. I can buy a 7 pin to component cable then connect my vcr device to component input but then what? I think it requires a driver to accept input on that device. I don't know what driver or what do once I have it set up.

The other device I have is a Haupaugge Hvr-2250 which accepts Component (or SVideo) in but again I am not sure how to (or what to) configure so I can run analog into that device. I have MythTV installed and I thought that would be a natural for capturing input and recording to digital but since I don't know how to set up the input I can't convert anything to digital. Don't know if it matters but I am using Fedora 13 with an Asus mother board and an AMD chip.

Ubuntu :: Permission Denied For Executing Files On The External Storage?

Jan 24, 2010

I have a dual boot Dell Studio laptop with Windows (VISTA) and Ubuntu (9.0.4) installed on it. I have recently installed Ubuntu to make it a dual boot. Before that I was using LiveUSB Ubuntu image for six months (without any problems).

During the installation of Ubuntu, I created a Linux partition of 2GB for Ubuntu installation (assuming that it was running successfully on my 2GB USB drive). All of my other work (e.g. documents/programming projects etc.) are stored on the Windows partition (which is loaded during the boot time automatically). The problem is that I get a "permission denied" error while running any executable file on the Windows partition. But if I copy the same executable on the Linux partition, everything works perfect. Am I missing something here?

I have verified that the executable have necessary execute permissions.

Ubuntu :: Opening Files From External Storage Devices From Within Applications?

May 3, 2010

Running various applications, including Open Office, I need to open files from my external hard drive, from within said application itself. But the file menus for all my applications list only the files of my primary hard drive, and I can't look at other drives. Surely there must be some way to do this.

Ubuntu :: Show Local Hard Disk As External USB Storage To TV?

Aug 17, 2010

I have this unique situation, I think. My TV plays certain files only through external USB storage. My Ubuntu server stores all of these files on local hard disks. I do not want to buy an external hard disk and then keep moving it between both. Now, strange as it may sound, is it possible to somehow connect my server to the PC and expose a given local hard disk connected to the server, as an external USB drive to the TV?

Ubuntu Servers :: Turn Computer Into An External Storage Place Over The Web?

May 22, 2011

I run Debian on my old computer to use it as a server. Everything is configured properly so that it functions as a web server. Now that summer comes closer I will not be home most of the time and I was thinking to use part of my server to upload/download files. Is there some nice package that provides an easy interface for such a task? I am reffering to something like the wikimedia package but for just downloading/uploading files.
