Programming :: Hard Drive Won't Mount

Jul 23, 2010

I am trying to mount a hard drive it shows up as /dev/sda1

I can click it and mount it via the GUI but I need it mounted for this script and do not want to have an extra step of doing it manually

I have tried (also tried sda vs sda1, no differance)
sudo mount /dev/sda1
sudo mount -t ntfs/dev/sda1
sudo mount -t ntfs-3g/dev/sda1

I know the drive is sda the only partition on it being sda1, but either I get an error saying it couldn't be found or I simply get no response depending on how I alter the code

Oh also the drive shows hpfs/ntfs 0x07 in the disk utility

Fedora :: Cannot Get USB Hard Drive To Mount

Jul 20, 2011

I'm new to Fedora. Is there an instruction manual. I'm using Fedora 14. I found under documentation a manual for musicians and amateur radio enthusiasts, but not for regular users. I'm using a black widow, which is a holder for hard drives that connects thru USB. I'm trying to mount it. The file system is Ext4.

Ubuntu :: Can't Mount 2nd Hard Drive?

Aug 24, 2010

I have got 2 hard drives running one one of my computers which i am running as an server. I was using Ubnntu Server which is good but i have decided to change the way that i am going to use the server and have installed Xubuntu over ubuntu server. However in the installation the hard drives shwn when it asked where i would like to install the operateing system. It installed sucessfully and is working but it cant mount my other hard drive which has all of my data on it.

I had tried mounting it throught the command prompt and had no success. After which i have checked if the the toher hard drive is being reconised by Xubuntu and it is as sdb1 but i caqnt mount it and get to my data. I hoped that i can try and put in my ubuntu live cd and see if it can pick the seoncd hard drive up and mount it which it has not been able to.

I have 2 20 gigabyte hard drives atm the moment and i am not adding the others until i can get to all my stuff again form the other hdd.

Ubuntu :: How To Mount A Hard Drive In OSX

Feb 20, 2011

I want to pull a few things off this external hard drive I have that is an ubuntu install from last year. However, my mac won't recognize the file system and mount it so I can pull the few files I need off of it.

What's the trick to getting a mac to find an ubuntu hard drive?

My other option is removing my laptop hard drive, installing the ubuntu one, opening ubuntu manually, burning the information I need to a CD, or a usb key, and then removing the ubuntu hard drive, and reinstalling my mac osx drive to the laptop bay.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Usb Hard Drive Won't Mount?

Jan 24, 2010

I bought a "WD My Passport Essential 320 GB" usb drive. When I plug it in (suse 11.2 x86_64 gnome version), it won't automount, a message appears ".../dev/sr2 is not a valid block device", I can not mount it manually neither Don't have a clue how to proceed in solving this issue. The drive is a bit strange though, it has some software on it for protecting data, which I wont need, but can't get rid of it neither. However when I connected it to my laptop running ubuntu 9.10 x86_64, the drive automounted ok, so I guess I must be missing some additional software on my suse. The drive was initially NTFS formated, but I did reformat it to FAT with ubuntu.

OpenSUSE Install :: Where To Mount Second Hard Drive

Oct 23, 2010

I've added a 1TB hard drive as a second hard drive on my PC, mostly because my home partition is full of music and movies, but I am unsure of where to mount it (or what to mount it as). "Yast Partitioner" suggested /tmp /srv or /localI basically want a storage solution for media files which can be accessed by multiple users (including a windows PC using samba)

Ubuntu :: How To Mount Iso On External Hard Drive?

Jan 18, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Can't Mount External Hard Drive Though Can In XP

Feb 23, 2010

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).

Ubuntu :: Cannot Mount External Hard Drive (10.04)?

May 10, 2010

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

Ubuntu :: Fstab - Trying To Mount Hard Drive ?

Aug 18, 2010

Installed ubuntu 10.4 on a formatted hard drive IDE. desktop has two other drives , one SATA drive and one SCSI drive. SCSI drive has windows.

Both windows and ubuntu load fine through GRUB2 etc

I had installed WUBI before on the SATA drive and then i uninstalled it.

problem is that when i log in to Ubuntu i see on fdisk

But i cannot access the SATA drive /dev/sda i tried mounting the drive but i get an error saying this is mounted as /dev/sdb5

How do i mount the SATA drive to get access to the drive ? i messed around with this drive when i was using WUBI. i.e. tried to mount it to recover grub but never got it working. Now somehow it seems that this old mounted drive is messing with my current Ubuntu install.

How to recover my fstab is shown below:

Changed the connect sequence in BIOS and mounted the volume using sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/sdb1

Ubuntu :: Windows Hard Drive Won't Mount / What To Do?

Sep 3, 2010

Windows XP Laptop hard drive is stuck in a hibernated mode. Will not let me access it through Windows, period.

I loaded Ubuntu Live on the suggestion of a coworker in order to retrieve my important files by hooking up the Windows HD through a USB adapter (Inland).

Ubuntu recognizes the 160GB HD, but refuses to mount the drive because "Windows is Hibernated." I Know my disk is hibernated, I need a way to get my important files from the drive...

(Screen Shot Attached in .jpeg format)

I know very little abount Ubuntu so please keep that in mind with your gracious replies.

Ubuntu :: External Hard Drive Won't Mount?

Jun 8, 2011

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

[Code].....

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?

Hardware :: How To Mount Hard Drive On Fedora 14?

Jun 1, 2011

I remember seeing it a LOT on Windows Vista *Formerly the primary before it was mine* and later on Ubuntu, it was just there, I wasn't able to install Ubuntu to it nor install Fedora to it, it was just there. The laptop was originally supposed to have up to 160GBs but instead all I get is a 60GB HDD and another 60GB HDD that I couldn't do much but put media on it... In which I plan on doing now, but on Fedora it isn't automatically mounted so... What do I do to mount the HDD? I've found a guide about it but it was outdated, I think around 2004,and I don't want to trust it unless I know it's safe. Any way, what do I have to do? Also, I've a question I've asked myself over and over, 60 and 60 don't add up to 160, where's the other 40GBs?

Hardware :: Mount Portable Hard Drive

Sep 6, 2010

I'm trying to mount a seagate portable hard drive. I can mount this device on my other machine except for this machine wherein every time I put the device, it was not being recognize. The led of the portable device just keeps on blinking. When I do fdisk -l, I don't see the device. When I do dmesg, I found the ff:

I used to mount this hard drive before and it was doing fine except last month wherein I cannot mount it anymore. I don't want to reboot and use LiveCD just to backup my files because other people are also using this machine (its a samba server). I tried to use other usb slot but still the same. I'm using CentOS 5.3 minimal installation. i tried to modprobe -r uhci_hcd and modprobe -r ehci_hcd and command again modprobe ehci_hcd and modprobe uhci_hcd but still the same.

Hardware :: Need To Mount Second Internal Hard Drive

Feb 28, 2009

I've just loaded Vector Linux on my computer (it's a Pentium 4/2ghz my father-in-law gave us). It seems to be working well, however, I have a second hard drive in addition to the boot drive. This drive is from a previous computer that ran Mandriva Linux, so I would imagive VL can read it. I can't seem to locate it anywhere using the gui. However, I checked the system settings window under "storage" and the drive shows up. It doesn't show up in the "devices" area of the system tray. I don't think I can navigate to the drive using the "file system" window either..Is there something I can do to -- one, find the drive; and two, add the drive to the devices window so I can mount it when I need to (or, preferably, keep it permantly mounted -- like on a mac or windows computer)?By the way, the drive was the boot drive for the Mandriva computer, but the jumper is currently set to "slave."

Hardware :: SATA Hard Drive Will Not Mount

Aug 2, 2011

I have a number of drives that I am setting up for friends who wish to switch/alternate from Windoze. So far several completed. One particular drive is being a bit difficult. When checked on my system[10.10] by Sata/USB wire it reads OK and gives the following info. 200GB, 768kb used, file sys Ms-Dos

When installed on the Mobo as main drive and machine booted set to boot from HD it sometimes reports 'No Drive Found' Reset the BIOS to boot from CD and Load Ubuntu from DVD- it goes through load routine then reports 'Error- cannot Mount drive[or words to that effect] Tried installing frm CD/DVD drive to the disk via the SATA/USB wire But that failed also with CD Auto load error So the disk seems to need setting up in some way to suit Linux presumably just like FDisk in Dos/Windoze
