Hardware :: Unknown Partition Table On USB Thumb Drive

Jul 29, 2010

My friend gave me a flash drive with some important files on it that one day didn't work with his windows box. Upon plugging in the thumb drive, Windows gives a "you must format this disk before it can be used" message. I tried running a data recovery program (Easeus) on it but didn't have great results- only recovered some .wav files, a few .avi files and a .exe- none of which were very important, so I figure'd I'd try to mount it in Linux and possibly see the rest of the filesystem. The thumbdrive is a 2GB Lexar JD Firefly I plugged in the thumb drive and it is picked up by the system, but I can't access it. Here is the output of lsusb

Debian Configuration :: Jessie (Stable) 8.4 Update Unknown Partition Table Message

Apr 17, 2016

I update Jessie "stable" 8.2 to 8.4 and now I get 5 minute interval kernel messages:

Apr 18 06:39:52 OraHost kernel: [131985.494726] sdc: unknown partition table
Apr 18 06:45:03 OraHost kernel: [132295.755942] sdc: unknown partition table
Apr 18 06:50:03 OraHost kernel: [132595.946564] sdc: unknown partition table
Apr 18 06:55:13 OraHost kernel: [132906.139327] sdc: unknown partition table
Apr 18 07:00:23 OraHost kernel: [133216.340555] sdc: unknown partition table

I believe this has something to do with an mdadm update which was included in the release. When I configured the array, I didn't partition the disk devices, so maybe that has something to do with it. I am thinking of rebuilding the array and partitioning prior to build, but a quick fix would be referable.

And also something appears to have happened to the raid device since the update.

Prior to update, the array was /dev/md0 - now it is /dev/md/0 which is a symbolic link back to /dev/md0.

mdadm --detail --scan now reports /dev/md/0 where previously it reported /dev/md0

I created a new RAID1 array on a fresh system and immediately after the create, these messages appear at 5 minute intervals.

General :: Automating USB Drive Configuration Of Partition Table, Partition And File System

Jan 26, 2011

I have tried to automate the configuration of a usb drive with not much success.

The problem that I have is that I have a large amount of usb drives that have a partition table of type "loop" and I need to change them to "msdos". The size of the drives vary and I need to use FAT32 or FAT16 file system.

I've tried various partitioning commands and gui applications but cant find one that I can give a one line command to to set the partition table, maximum partition size and file system.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Boot Into New Drive - No Partition Table

Apr 2, 2010

I'm upgrading from a 250GB drive to a 500GB drive. I booted into the live-CD, ran gparted and created the necessary partitions:

/dev/sda1 ext4 /
/dev/sda2 swap
/dev/sda3 ext4 /home

then I used dd to transfer data from the old drive to the new drive. Now I am unable to boot into the new drive. I tried to boot again from the live-CD but fdisk reports that the drive has no partition table. I can still mount the devices (e.g. mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/sda3) and I can see all the files. But without a partition table, I can't set one partition to be bootable. Why doesn't gparted create a partition table? it created the filesystems just fine. how do I boot into the new disk? What do I have to do to make grub handle the new disk?

Hardware :: New Drive Geometry Vs. Antique Partition Table Details?

Apr 5, 2010

Are there plans to alter or improve our partition options surrounding the change from 512 to 4096 byte sectors? It seems that the DOS-world of four primary partitions is a bit screwy in a world of tera-byte drives.

Server :: Control Which Drive Letter USB Thumb Drive Gets Assigned During Install Process?

Mar 30, 2010

The software: Ubuntu Server Edition 9.10.The wetware: A programmer doing his best (read: ignorant, shitty) as an ad-h.When I plug the USB thumb drive in, the install OS gives it a drive letter -- /dev/sdb -- and it pushes the original /dev/sdb down to /dev/sdc. The installation works without a hitch, and GRUB2 installs, dutifully pointing the root at /dev/sdc1 instead of /dev/sdb1.I let GRUB2 start normally ("drive not found"), holding the <shift> key to get to the "rescue>" prompt.From there, I issue "ls" to discover that GRUB can NOT see /dev/sdb, and I can tell that because what is showing up as (hd1) does NOT have three partitions as it should.GRUB2 sees a total of 16 drives, not 26, and one of the drives it sees is "fd0" (there is no floppy drive).Issuing commands like "set prefix=(hdx,y)" and "root=(hdx,y)" have no effect as, I think it's just pointing to the (reiserfs)content drives and this GRUB2 tells me "unknown filesystem".I did try them all in vain, hoping that maybe I'd find a kernel somewhere.I used the "rescue" mode of the Ubuntu installer (the USB thumb drive) to get to a root prompt.From there, I mounted /dev/sdc2 (the "shifted" /dev/sdb2) onto /mnt, I mounted /dev/sdc1 (the "shifted" /dev/sdb1) onto /mnt/boot,and then I chroot'ed to /mnt.I edited /boot/grub/grub.cfg, editing every instance of "root=(hd2,1)" to the appropriate UUID for the "real" /dev/sdb1. Then I issued update-grub2.It refused to work giving me an banal "no such partition" error or something like that.

We originally had this server functioning by putting / and /boot on the SS SanDisk, which caused no problems during installation because /dev/sda doesn't get shifted.We then figured it was a good idea to put our OS files on something with failover capability. And that started us down this crappy "shifting drive letter" path.Can I control which drive letter the USB thumb drive gets assigned during the install process?If I could make it be /dev/sdc then I wouldn't be facing this problem.An alternate solution would be to know the cryptic GRUB2 commands that I can issue from the command prompt post-install, pre-reboot.But I'm wondering if that will ultimately work at all considering that GRUB2 couldn't see /dev/sdb at all.

CentOS 5 :: User Unknown In Virtual Mailbox Table

Oct 27, 2010

when I try to send emails to new created emails account, I get this error:

<teste@topdapop.com>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table´┐Ż
And if I try to send a e-mail, the authentication fails if I setup the account at the desktop email client to password requirement on.

But it works when I try it using a webmail client (Horde) and I receive the email.The old emails accounts work fine. The new accounts and old ones were created with Plesk.I find an entry with

/usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/mail_auth_view | grep teste@topdapop.com

I get no output from

strings /var/spool/postfix/plesk/virtual.db | grep teste@topdapop.com
Using mchk and mailmng does not seems to change that.

I also found the file /etc/postfix/virtual.db .strings /etc/postfix/virtual.db : no output

General :: Booting From USB Thumb Drive?

Jun 25, 2011

I have a new Giada cube with no hard drive, so my plan is to simply run a Linux/MythTV distro called MythDora from a Patriot 8GB USB stick (this Giada does not PXE boot). I am having trouble figuring out exactly how to make this work. Yesterday, although I have forgotten exactly how, I was able to put a MythDora Live image on the stick and boot up. I went through the initial setup, and then, when I was all done, I rebooted, and..it started all over again...as if I was doing it for the first time. So...What do I need to do to create a proper bootable USB stick?What ISO image should I use? The full DVD? Or the Live ISO? or the Network image?Do I need to partition the stick and load the O/S from one small partition, transferring the installation to another larger one?What utility should I use to create the bootable stick? unetbootin? or similar?Do I have to do anything special to make my O/S and configuration changes persistent on the USB stick?

CentOS 5 :: USB Thumb Drive Thinks It's A CD-ROM?

Messages in "/var/log/messages" shows Vendor (Sandisk) and Model (Cruzer) for the USB thumb drive. Those are correct. But for Type it says CD-ROM. What's up with that?

Fedora :: Recovering Data From A Thumb Drive

Dec 3, 2009

The following quote is the sad, sad story of a thumb drive with the partition table nuked, as told by a friend of mine:

Quote:

Data was recovered from an XP system by booting with a BartPC CD and copying onto a USB thumb drive. Nothing unusual.

System was rebooted into the XP install CD.

The first drive that was found was the 16gb thumb drive (AKA flash drive) and the person (re) installing XP didn't catch the fact that XP presented the 16gb thumb drive instead of the 160gb hard drive.

The drive partition function in XP deleted the partition table - on the thumb drive.

A freeware utility in Windows shows the data but can't recover the file names, so that everything is gobbledygook. Does anybody know of a utility or program under Linux that can help? I have a laptop running F 12 and can do the work if needed, but don't know what program to use.
