OpenSUSE Hardware :: Mount External Drive - 11.0 Doesn't Seem To Work
Aug 31, 2010
I have a hard time mounting two external drives on my Suse 11.3. When I use the device notifier gadget both drives get mounted in /media/<drive name>, the vfat drive is read-only though. However, I would like to mount both drives under /<drive name> in separate directories and rw. I looked at the devices in /dev/ and entered the device name to fstab, set the mount point, file system (vfat, and ntfs-3g) and set 'rw,noauto,exec,user,sync 0 0'.
This way I could mount my vfat drive read-only under /<drive name>, but not the ntfs one. After a reboot i noticed that the external drives get different IDs in /dev. E.g. what I had in my fstab under /dev/sdc1 got /dev/sdf1, and /dev/sdc was unknown. I am doing something wrong here, what worked in 11.0 does not seem to work here.
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 am using Open Suse 11.2 on my HP DV6 notebook. I am connecting my television to the notebook with a HDMI cable and the television is unable to find any signal. Am I missing anything here? Shouldn't it be simply connecting the HDMI cable finding the source channel on the television and then I get sound and picture..
How do I configure my Debian installation to mount external USB drives to mount points based on the volume names of the drives? For instance, if I have a thumb drive with the volume name of "SWORDFISH," how do I have Linux mount it at /media/SWORDFISH? I'm aware that this can be setup in FSTAB, but that requires that I know the UUID of the device beforehand and that I take the time to set each external device up in FSTAB first. That does nothing for me when I have a thumb drive that has never been plugged into my computer before.
This seems to be setup by default in Ubuntu/Kubuntu, but is not working for me with a fresh installation of Debian Squeeze and KDE4. I've spent the past 2 hours Googling for a solution and have turned up nothing. UPDATE: My results are inconsistent. Sometimes Debian mounts devices to mount points based on the volume names, and other times it gives them generic mount points (e.g. /media/usb1).
My CD drive is attached as secondary slave but it doesn't appear anywhere, eg. no /dev/hdd or /dev/cdrom. It is not listet in hwinfo either. I completely re-installed SuSE from network today, so it's the newest version. The drive always worked fine in SuSE 9.x and also booting the Network Setup CD worked properly.
May there be missing packages? What do I have to check next?
I have been trying to share folders from my main PC which is running Ubuntu 10.04. I have been able to figure out Samba enough to get my a couple of folders shared, but I have been unable to share any folders which are on my external harddrive. After entering the path in my smb.conf file they appear on the network but I am unable to navigate to them. When trying to navigate to them through the network folder on the pc they are actually connected to I get an "Unable to mount location: Failed to mount windows share" dialog box. On the windows pc I am trying to share with I get, "Windows cannot acces \Josh-Desktop ame of folder"
My smb.conf file looks like this:
That folders I cannot access are Music and Videos.
OpenSUSE 11.2 x86_64 KDE SC 4.4.3 Linux 2.6.34-rc6-29-desktop (from KERNEL:HEAD) HAL 0.5.13-4.2.1 udisks 1.0.0.git20100224-11.1 ASRock G43Twins-FullHD LGA 775 Intel G43 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard Samsung 22X DVDR DVD Burner Black SATA Model SH-S223Q (connected via SATA. detected as: /dev/sr0)
Discs are read by the drive when inserted (they are spun and the LED light on the drive lights up) but nothing happens after that.
I disconnected the SATA cable and tried a new SATA cable on a different SATA port and also tried a different SATA power cable but that did not fix anything.

I get this when I try to mount this drive. I was working just fine and then when I tried to mount again to pull some data off It gave me an error. It is an internal hard sata hard drive hook up via usb with a usb to sata converter. Is there some kind of disk check i can do to find errors. There is data on there I would like to keep
I am the owner of a netbook (Namely, the Acer Aspire one.) With Ubuntu 10.10 netbook edition. I also own a External Usb CD drive. My question is, how do I mount it? K3B seems to find it. Sound juicer doesn't. Rhythm-Box doesn't.
I have an external usb connected floppy drive that I cannot mount.#fdisk -1 does not show the drive, in my ignorance I thought that it being a usb it would be recognized the same as flash drives and my external usb ide hdd are recognized.The drive does work, I have tested it in windows computers.Does the floppy need special settings?This may be related or it may be another issue totally:The floppy is recognized in gparted although I cannot format the disc to fat16 or fat 32 as they are greyed out.
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'm having a problem with my external drive under Ubuntu 9.04. After a reboot Ubuntu seems no longer to mount the the 3 seperate partitions on my external drive. I've added some screenshots of my fstab file which i tried just to let Ubuntu mount my drives, without any results!Can someone help me? If more info is requered, please let me know.
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?
Having issues while mounting my 1TB passport USB drive. When running this command....
Code: sudo mount /dev/sdc /mnt/WD/
I got this error: mount: you must specify the filesystem type I even tried adding the filesystem, which was or is ext4
Code: sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/sdc /mnt/WD/ Getting a different error instead: Code: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
I should mention that this was working just a few hours ago. There was a power glitch and my Ubuntu headless server lost power. I turned it on and since then, I am getting this error. I would prefer not to format via GUI .... 1st because I have data there , 2nd, because I don't want to rely on a graphical interface but being able to fix this via terminal.
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.
Script doesn't work anymore? I created a script that mounts an external hard drive. #!/bin/sh mount -t smbfs //192.168.1.104/MediaShare /mnt/MediaShare mount -t smbfs //192.168.1.104/Backup /mnt/Backup
It is in my startup and has been working fine. I recently upgraded to 10.04 Ubuntu and I don't know if this has anything to do with it. A while after the upgrade something changed. Normally when booting up a permission screen for the scrip would pop up, I would enter the password, and it worked. But suddenly it started going past the login for the script and the mouse could not click on anything. I discovered that I could press alt-o and the mouse worked again. And I would activate the script in terminal and it would work. Why this would suddenly change and what I can do to get the script working again.
I've recently started using a 500gb external hard drive for music and backups. It is always plugged into the computer but doesn't always mount at boot-up and I have to dis-connect and re-connect the USB cable. The desktop icon then appears.The fact that it's mount point changes also means I can't share the Music folder on the external hard drive via Samba (WinXP machines say they can't access the folder) and also Songbird 'loses' the tracks.
How do I permanently mount the external hard drive? I assume it will mean some editing of the fstab file? Unfortunately, I've got no idea of what I should enter on there.The external hard drive volume is called 'Music and BackUps' - Gparted screengrab attached.
I have an eSata external hard drive connected to my desktop running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. I searched around for some info on how to mount an eSata external hard drive and was not successful. Most of the posts were talking about stuff after the drive has been mounted.
I have some documents that I need to copy from my old disk that has Fedora 9 on it. I bought external usb case for 2'5" disk but when I connect it through usb cable I can only hear it running but there's not much of the auto-detection.
