I need a guicance related to mounting USB stick of 2GB capacity. Normally when I insert my USB stick it mount automatically and show me.I want that instead the usb mount automatically I manually mount it. Now there are two steps to do it. First How to stop USB to mount automatically ? Second How to mount it manually ?
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.
I would like to ask you how to mount audio cds in linux manually. Normally, when I insert disk into cd-rom, Gnome manages to open me a window with content of cd. Everything works ok, until I try to mount same cd through shell.
First error complaining about cd being read-only can be solved using -r arugment. But, second error wants me to specify filesystem, which I don't know of course. I heard that audio cds don't have any filesystem or something similar, but how is it possible to display it's content in Gnome?
I actually mean, I would like to be able to do same thing, but without desktop environment - only through shell.
Debian Lenny, kernel 2.6.26-2-686 I'm trying to manually mount my digital camera. Picasa recognizes the device and imports pictures. However, I'd like to access my device manually as there are small video files I'd like to retrieve. It's for a fujifilm Z33 WP digicam.

In Picasa...where it says "Select Device", it finds
USB PTP Class Camera@usb:
USB PTP Class Camera@usb:005,010
selecting either one of them can access the camera directly. How can I pinpoint my device and mount it using the regular mount /mnt/point/ /path/to/my/cam?
I had installed this drive as a slave drive yesterday, and it had worked perfectly, mounted good, etc., etc.
Today, I fire up ol' trusty, and my slave drive doesn't show in either "Places," "System Monitor," or "Disk Usage Analyzer." It does, however, show up in BIOS and "Gparted Partition Editor." A mounting option isn't present in "Places" as it was yesterday.
If I need to manually mount it or whatever, would someone please list the steps I need to take to get my HD back?
My main harddrive is a Western Digital 160 Gb IDE and is listed as /dev/sda. My slave is a Seagate 80 Gb SATA and is listed as /dev/sdb
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).
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.
Code: //192.168.0.242/websites /mnt/supercube cifs rw,user=XXX,pass=XXX,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,uid=XXX 0 0 But it doesn't auto mount with everything and disconnects whenever I suspend my computer. The only way to get it to mount is with Code: sudo mount -a and it mounts fine with no error.
Did lucid change the way it uses fstab or something? Obviously writing mount -a isn't a huge concern, but it kind of destroys the point of putting it in my fstab.
I have figured out manually setting the swap partition and setting "/" as the mount point for the primary partition during install. If during install, I want to create another partition to keep the OS separate from installed programs and such, to be able to do a clean install every 6 months and not loose everything (or anything) I have done prior.
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 error†In 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:
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.
I'm unable to mount external drives in thunar. Pcmanfm works fine. Ive tried a 2gb usb stick and a sd card reader. both give the same error. I used to be able to mount drives with thunar. What happened? I'm using ubuntu 9.10, installed lxde on top of server edition. Thunar is 1.0.1 , from the repos. Here is the output from the usb stick:
Failed to mount "2G Removable Volume". mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so .
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.
dmesg: usb 2-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3 [41796.814297] usb 2-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice [41796.943922] Initializing USB Mass Storage driver... [41796.944228] scsi2 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
I would like to download a few (591)images from the Galaxy S phone. Samsung have advised me that to do that I need to place the Galaxy S phone on Mass storage, whivch I can do and plug the phone USB cable to the PC and manually mount the USB. The Galaxy S firmware 2.1-update1 doesn't support automatic mounting! The Galaxy S has an Android platform Kernel version 2.6.29 with root @SE-S604 #2. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 on a AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1700+ with 1G of ram. It's the manual mounting of the USB connection
Today I was trying to make a LiveUSB for Fedora 15 with UNetbootin and when I inserted my USB stick, it blinked and then this error appeared: Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
I tried (unsucessfully) to load the alpha version of Ubuntu 10.04, & now my comp will not even load XWindows at all. I am trying to reload Ubuntu 09.10, (i have it on a flash drive), but cannot even get the thing mounted properly. The error i get is Disk devsdb invalid partition table
I want to simply mount an ext4 file-system onto a normal mount point in Ubuntu (/media/whereever), as read-writable for the current logged-in user, i.e. me.
I don't want to add anything into /etc/fstab, I just want to do it now, manually. I need super-user privileges to mount a device, but then only root can read-write that mount. I've tried various of the mount options, added it into fstab, but with no luck.
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).
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.
usb devices, such as external hdd, memory stick and mp3 player, when I connect them to USB, they show up in Nautilus, but when I click on them, Nautilus is unable to mount them and returns the following error: Unable to mount location 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 error in some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
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.
