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.

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 :: 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?

General :: Use The Second Drive For Backups, Both Manual And Using Back In Time \ Noticed That The Second Drive Was Formated In FAT32?

Nov 1, 2010

I have a second hard drive in my desktop and both the main dirve and second drive are 250GB. I use the second drive for backups, both manual and using back in time. The other day I noticed that the second drive was formated in FAT32. If I go to disk utility and look at the drive it says:Usage:FilesystemPartition Type:Linux (0x83)Type:FAT(32-bit version)Is this ok? I thought in Linux it should be Ext4. So far its been working fine for a while now but if I need to move my files and re format it to ext4 and move them back I would rather do it now when there is less data on the drive.

The personal HD is /dev/sdb.

I know I have to edit fstab in order to get it to mount automatically at boot, but I am having trouble with the commands.

I would like for it to mount at boot and have full read-write access from any user.

General :: Lower-casing Filenames On Fat32 External Drive

Jan 6, 2010

I have an external harddrive which is fat32 (which was filled when I was on a windows system) with a lot of files on (> 200gb) which have mixed case filenames. I wanted to write a script to rename them all to lowercase however when I did I got an error saying that the filenames are the same (which I guess is true as FAT is case-insensitive). My issue is that I'm mounting this from a linux box now so it would make it a lot easier if things were lower case! I've already run a script to replace all spaces with underscores.

I know I could do this by first going through and renaming everything with a prefix and then renaming it back again (ie, rename File.Jpg to xFile.Jpg and then a second rename to strip that x off and rename lowercase to file.jpg) however I find this approach a bit messy and would prefer to do it all in one pass. Other than that, could I change the drive to ext4 without losing any files on it? The drive has a hell of a lot of stuff on there which is an archive of many years of files - I'd be absolutely gutted if I lost everything.

General :: How To Add And Remove External FAT32 Usb Drive To RHEL Server?

Jan 8, 2010

I need to get a backup copy of a huge directory on one of our RHEL servers. Rather than hook the external USB drive up to my PC and manually copy it all across the network, can I just plug it in to one of my USB ports on the server and rsync it?I know how to do the rsync, I just don't know how to get the USB drive to show up when I do a df -h and how to properly remove it before unplugging it from the server. this is a live server, so I can't go playing around and possibly mess something up.

Programming :: Ext3 To FAT32 USB Drive Filename - Invalid Characters

Feb 13, 2011

I am using Debian Lenny 5.0.3 with a stock 2.6.26-2-amd64 kernel, and have a ~/Documents/HTMLS directory of 273.2MB (21590 files, 1063 sub-folders) which according to konqueror shows 1130 items - 572 files (60.8MB Total) - 558 folders, these were created by 'Save Page As' in Iceweasel 3.5.11. I am trying to copy the contents of this directory to a similar directory on a 2GB USB thumbdrive /dev/sdb1 which was partitioned and formatted as fat32 by Qparted. Problem is that the copying ceases after about 6 files transfer. I found that (as I am sure you know) the named.html files come with a matching named_files folder, and often there are what appear to be invalid characters such as '*','?',and ':' in the filenames in said named_files folders.

After exhaustive googling [I know we all say that] I found an instruction:
Code:
pax -rw -s '/[*?:]/_/gp' stuff /fat32/partition
that changes the name of the files, replacing said characters with '_', but whilst I can get pax from my repos, I really don't want to 'archive' the files - since I understand that pax was created to bridge a war between tar and cpio - because I want to be able to read the html files on an old (not connected to the Internet) WinXP tablet. So, I believe that I need to create a script, that scans all the filenames, greps and seds to replace said 'unacceptable' characters. I am assuming that Firefox on the Tablet PC will be able to open the htmls if I can get them onto the thumb drive. Are there any other known characters in filenames that M$ file systems can't handle?

General :: Good Backup Utility / Script / App / Got External FAT32 Drive

Mar 10, 2011

I am working from a laptop where all my work is stored on a 80GB drive. I am now also an owner of an external 250GB USB hard drive, formatted with FAT32. I want to keep it FAT32, so that I can offer some of my files to people that run Mac OS or Windows and I don't want to have them install ext3 for windows and what not.I am in need of a strategy which will allow me to keep a mirror of my laptop drive on my new external drive, i.e. no history / versioning required. However, I do care about file permissions. The files don't have to be stored as-is, they can be stored within a large (80GB?) tar file, that is fine - it would be easier for me to coerce people to open a .tar file than to install an ext3 driver for their OS, I suppose. I don't think I can keep file permissions otherwise, can I?

I have previously used a self-written sh script that used rsync to keep an up-to-date copy of my laptop filesystem on a USB flash drive, but in that case I had the flash drive formatted with ext3, so no problem with file permissions there. This time, it's trickier.

Fedora Hardware :: F13 - GPhoto2 Can No Longer Access Digital Camera

Nov 4, 2010

I have a Nikon Cool Pix 990 camera which I could access under Fedora 11 (and previous) using digikam and/or gphoto2. However under F12 and F13 it no longer works. When plugged in I get a Nikon Camera icon that the system thinks is a usbfs. However the camera is too old for that interface. If I unmount the device then it shows under usb-devices as having Driver=(none). How can I get it to be recognised as a non-usbfs device ?
