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? The hard drive itself is formatted from the factory in NTFS. I'm going to leave it in this file format is a need to use it with Windows machines as well.
I have a rather large USB drive that I'd like to be able to use across the different machines I own. I'm having a hard time figuring out what would be the best file system to use on it to be able to read/write things from the 3 OSs I'm in contact with: Windows, Linux and Mac.
I;ve been using Ubuntu (10.xx) for a few months now and am really getting the hang of it.My NAS drive has now failed.It is a WD Mybook world edition 1tb with the blue rings.The drive spins fine and in windows I can see the partitions but I understand the file system is linux based.Can anyone help as to how I can mount the drive and recover the files using ubuntu / linux.I have a USB caddy to connect the SATA drive to my laptop.
Manually mount or fix my external hard drive. I can't format the drive because I have important data on it. The drive is 1TB Select USB 2.0 Desktop Hard Drive from Iomega. When I plug it in, a message appears that reads:
"Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb2,missing codepage or helper program, or other error. In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so".
Also, I plugged in the drive, typed the command "sudo fdisk -l" in the terminal, and received the following:
WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sda'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.
WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sdb'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.
Earlier this year I encountered a problem with my external hard drive; it would not mount automatically and I kept getting an error message. Last time I was able to fix it by typing in the terminal 'sudo fsck /dev/sdb2'. Once again it's not mounting automatically and I'm not even getting the error message. I can't format the drive because I have important data on it. The drive is 1TB Select USB 2.0 Desktop Hard Drivefrom Iomega. Also, I plugged in the drive, typed the command "sudo fdisk -l" in the terminal, and received thefollowing:WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sda'!

I just purchased a Western Digital My Book World Edition External hard drive and need to mount and format. My router sees the connection but I am now unsure how to proceed. Will linux detect the new device through my wireless connection? I know very little about Unix based or Linux commands.
I'm trying to get an external HD to mount on my Dell Laptop running OpenSuse 11.1. When I connect I get the following:
usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4 usb 1-5: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice scsi3 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices usb 1-5: New USB device found, idVendor=0bc2, idProduct=0503 usb 1-5: New USB device strings: Mfr=54, Product=69, SerialNumber=95
But am left scratching my head. I don't think its showing up in the etc/mtab - which i think it is supposed to?
I have WD external 1TB USB 3.0 drive that I want to attach to a RHEL 5 computer. I don't want to format it to a FAT32 as I'm copyong over about 530GB of data. What is the easy to get the RHEL OS to recognize this drive? NTFS is not loaded on this system as I already checked.
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.
I'm trying to partition/format a new external hard disk for backup and have run into a snag that now prevents my computer from booting. In the description below of what happened please bear with me as I do my best to remember the commands and screen output (which for obvious reasons I don't have in front of me).As root.The disk was subsequently writable. However, I then realized that the default start and end cylinders had resulted in a very small partition apparently occupying some free cyclinders in the beginning of the disk.
So next I ran fdisk again, deleting the sdc4 I had just created and creating a new one instead, this time using the cylinders at the end of the disk. When I exited fdisk I got a message something like that the new tables can only be read upon a subsequent reboot. I ran mkfs again, but not e2label. Indeed using /sbin/fdisk -l, sdc4 still had the small size as defined initially. So I rebooted.
Now when it comes up I get something like "checking filesystems. fchk.ext3: can't resolve 'LABEL=/media/LaCie2TB1'" and am prompted to login as root to correct. I tried to simply delete sdc4 again but that didn't help. I also tried to edit /etc/fstab (using vi, which I don't know at all) but it kept telling me that this is a read only file, even though permissions are rw for root.Can anyone out there help me so that (1) I can boot into my computer, and (2) I can correctly partition and format the hard drive??
I have two 1TB HDD's formatted in NTFS, one has windows and other stuff i use even on linux and the other is all media. i can mount them easy, but this is a minor annoyance because everytime i log in i must type in my password. is there no way to have them auto mounted on startup?
I've had a look at some similar threads but as I'm very new to linux they're already a bit technical for me. Sorry, this calls for someone with patience. I gather from other threads that disconnecting an external drive without unmounting is a no-no, and this seems to be the likely cause. Now the disk is read only and I'm unable to change any settings through the usual control panel on ubuntu. I'm just not familiar with the terminal instructions. I tried to cut and past a few command lines from other threads but I got some warnings that proceding could damage data. Like this one: WARNING! Running e2fsck on a mounted filesystem may cause SEVERE filesystem damage.
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.
I am having problems mounting an iso on my external hard drive. I do not want to move it onto my linux partition because it is 3.6 GB. I have a directory made (/media/iso) that I would like to mount it in, but if that doesn't work then I don't care where it goes. After I mount it I want to be able to run it using Wine, but that will come later. For now I just need to get it mounted. And, of course, I am fairly new to linux/ubuntu.
I've been checking the Forums and I can't find anything similar to my problem yet. I have 2 external drives that my UBUNTU 9.10 doesn't recognize, although I can see them perfectly in Win XP.I was using them in Ubuntu until 2 weeks ago, when this problem started and I can't find a way to see/mount them again. GPARTED doesn't find any of them; and when aply fdisk -l, can't see them either (only my internal HD).
I run 10.04 lucid in a laptop with EXT4 as filesystem, and I tried to mount an external hard drive from a Windows that, obviously, uses FAT32. Its the first time I try to mount a hard drive (external) since the upgrade to 10.04. Do I have to download some packages via synaptic? If not, what do I have to do?
Plus, I have run Code: sudo fdisk -l and this is what I get
I recently wiped and re-installed Ubuntu on my system Lenovo Thinkpak T510, now running 11.04. Before formatting my hard drive, I backed up all my information to an external USB Seagate FreeAgent Drive, which I reformatted to ext4 before copying my data there using a rsync command. After reinalling the operating system, I'm no longer able to get the drive to mount. I'm not quite sure what's going on. Here are the results of a fdisk command:
Code: $ sudo fdisk -l Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
I'm not able to mount the drive from my mac either. Did I do something wrong when backing up my data and loose everything (fortunately, most of it is also backed up elsewhere, just not all in a single place), or is there something else I can try to get it back?
Just installed opensuse 11.3 Kdeversion on my laptop. Before installing it on live mode i had a problem of accessing my other drives (NTFS, FAT32 and EXT4) which said HAL system policy...etc mounting error. I could access all drives with root privilege. I thought problem will be solver once i install opensuse on my system. How ever i was really disappointed after seeing the same problem post install. 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.
I dont know anything about linux and just been assigned to amount a drive to it. here's what i did so far: Version of Linux using Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.3 (Tikanga) [root]# mount -t auto /dev/sdb1 /tmp/archive mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'
when checking the /proc/filesystems, i noticed that 'ntfs' is not listed there, several forum suggested i try running 'modprobe ntfs'. If that is not found, you'll need a kernel with ntfs support. i'm so lost, where to i get the modprobe ntfs
