Software :: Ntfs Volumes Aren't Recognized By Windows

Apr 2, 2011

I've made 2 ntfs volumes by mkntfs. First one is a primary partition on usb hard drive and second is a logical partition on system hard drive. I used default cluster and sector sizes in mkntfs. Under Linux these partitions are mountable by ntfs-3g, readable and writable. But fdisk doesn't recognize their filesystem type. It recognizes that as "Linux". WinXP x64 also can't recognize filesystem type of these partitions. Why windows can't work with these partitions?

Ubuntu :: Mkfs.ntfs Partitions Are Not Recognized By Windows 7?

May 7, 2010

I formatted with mkfs.nts a USB 500 GB external drive. Under Linux when I connect it to the USB port it's recognized and works. Under windowz 7 home is's seen in the device list but not in the computer window. I can't do anything with it apart eject it. This is what I get from fdisk:sudo fdisk /dev/sdcThe number of cylinders for this disk is set to 60801.There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,and could in certain setups cause problems with:1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs(e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)Command (m for help):

and this from fdisk -ls /dev/sdc:
gt[~]$ sudo fdisk -ls /dev/sdc
Disk /dev/sdc: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes

Hardware :: Hard Drives Aren't Recognized Until Reboot

May 28, 2011

I have a computer with 2 internal hard drives and one of them doesn't show up in the bios until I reboot. Almost every time. Does this mean the drive is going to fail or the cable is bad or what?

Ubuntu Security :: Disallow Users Mounting NTFS Volumes?

I have a system, I want only my sudoer account to show and automount NTFS partitions under 'Places' in Ubuntu. Simply, they shall not have access to mount it. Only my main sudoer user account shall take advantage on this show-and-possibly-automount feature of GNOME, but not anyone else.

Fedora Installation :: Editing Fstab File To Mount Ntfs Volumes Rw For User Account?

Mar 29, 2009

I have two NTFS volumes I want to automount at boot. I can't get my user account to mount them in Fedora 10. I keep getting the message that the two lines I have edited in fstab are bad. The volumes are sda2 and sda8, and the volume names are SPACELAB and Spaceman. I also need to be able to mount an NTFS usb drive from time to time. I am getting frustrated, so I have posted my fstab file below,

# /etc/fstab

Fedora Hardware :: Logical Drives In Windows 7 Aren't Accessible Except The First One

Jul 15, 2010

In windows 7, I had 5 partitions on a hard disk: C, D, E, F, G . I installed Scientific Linux 5.0 on C partition and it removed Win 7 . It's graphic mode didn't work, also I couldn't access to the other drives. I replaced it by Fedora 13. I can work graphically Fedora but when I mount the other drives, just D drive is visible! Is there any solution that I could access to the data on other drives? By the way, the following is the output of fdisk -l .

[root@Niki ~]# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes


Disk /dev/dm-1 doesn't contain a valid partition table

Disk /dev/dm-2: 38.3 GB, 38319161344 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4658 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Ubuntu :: NTFS (Data And Games) Partitions Not Recognized

Apr 17, 2010

On my system I have two internal SATA Disk drives, the first one is 120GB and the second one 360GB.

120GB Disk:
1st partition: NTFS (22GB), Windows XP is installed, for playing my games.
2nd partition: NTFS (62GB), The "GAMES" partition, where all the games are installed
3rd partition: EXT4 (25GB), Ubuntu Karmic
4th partition: SWAP space

The 320GB disk is a single NTFS partition, where all my data/files are stored. A couple of days ago I used GPARTED to shrink the 320GB partition and create a new 2GB FAT32 one at the end of it. (Never had any problem before using GPARTED for any filesystem). I put in there some old dos games and rebooted to windows. Then I formatted a diskette as MS-DOS startup disk. I rebooted the computer again and and booted from the FreeDOS LiveCD. After playing for a while I tried the MS-DOS disk, to see if it performed better.

Now Windows XP does not recognize the DATA and GAMES partitions, buts recognizes the fat32 one. In ubuntu they work, but when I try to fix them, it says "run chkdsk". Windows does not recognize them so I cannot do this. I tried to restore Windows XP from a Norton Ghost Backup image file, but its LiveCD does not recognize these partitions either (norton ghost 12 uses vista to boot the live cd).

Ubuntu :: Grub Rescue / Wiped Partition - Recognized As "Others" (not NTFS Or Anything)

Jan 7, 2011

I had Ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop, and updated to 11.04. For some reason, it didn't work anymore (after 5 mins, it was freezing) so I wanted to reinstall and get to 10.04 again (I installed it using Wubi, on Windows 7, separate partition). But there was no Ubuntu in the ADD/REMOVE list. Ok so I used a partition wizard to notice that the partition with Ubuntu was recognized as "Others" (not NTFS or anything),

so I told the program to WIPE it, format it as NTFS and I was planning to reinstall Ubuntu 10.04 over there. But it seems like this was a big mistake - when I rebooted my laptop, I got the GRUB RESCUE console. I want to make it run again so I can get into my Windows 7 at least and to get to the Ubuntu 10.04.

Ubuntu :: Ext4 Partition Recognized As Part Of Original NTFS Partition In Fdisk

Jul 18, 2011

I just installed ubuntu via the windows executable and I couldn't mount my NTFS partition. I found this a little odd and I checked fdisk and it seems to think I don't have an ext4 partition as my entire internal HD is displayed as NTFS.

Here's the fdisk output:

When i try to mount the NTFS partition /dev/sda2 i get the following output:

I can't make heads or tails out of this. Anyone know what's going on here?

Windows recognizes that 30GB were taken from the NTFS partition for my linux install. It reads the max partition size as 465GB. fstab reports the NTFS partition size as 488GB.

Ubuntu :: How To Tag MP3 To Be Recognized In Windows

Jan 13, 2011

I have tagged my mp3 collection using Rhytmbox. The problem is that my mp3 player is a Windows based and does not recognize these ID tags. Also, when I examine files in Windows, I see only empty spaces. When I did tagging in Windows, mp3 player recognized them without any problems. Any recommendation for some SW to ID tag my mp3s that would also be recognized by Windows/my mp3 player?

Ubuntu Installation :: Resizing Windows Partition - Install Files On A Non Windows NTFS Partition

Jul 22, 2010

Now however its not letting me resize the Windows partition, mounted or unmounted. It currently occupies the whole disk. I would rather not reinstall the whole thing over again, but I will if I have to. Isnt there an easy way to shrink a Windows partition? I swear Ive done this before and it wasnt this hard. Could it be a problem with the Mint installer that now asks me if I want to unmount my disks before it goes into install mode? On this PC I would like to have

Windows XP
One of the E17 OSs
Puppy Linux (to create a remix)

I am probably going to put most of the linux partitions on the second laptop drive but I want to install files on a non WIndows NTFS partition.

Ubuntu :: Formatting Tools In Windows VM Are Not Recognized?

Jan 11, 2011

I am trying to make a multipass USB flash drive which basically turns say a bootable live iso into a flash drive, but many of them at once and accessing them using GRUB. The only issue I am having is I have to do this in Windows. So I am currently using my VM to do it and the Grub installer and petousb tool are not recognizing ANY drives at all on the system. I can use my usbs on the VM though.

Ubuntu :: Uninstall - Partition Isn't Recognized By Windows

Apr 15, 2011

I have a computer which I upgraded to Windows 7. But when I upgraded it, I forgot about the Ubuntu Install Inside Windows partition I had, and when my disc was formatted, it deleted Ubuntu but not the partition. The partition isn't recognized by Windows AT ALL, but when I start it up the boot menu still gives me an option to boot into Ubuntu.

General :: Vfat Partition Not Recognized By Windows 7?

Dec 13, 2010

I have a 320GB external HDD with 2 partitions, both primary:

1. vfat 100GB
2. ext3 remainder

Both were formatted when I created them with qtparted. Windows 7 sees them, and says they are healthy, but does not recognize the vfat partition. Is it too big, perhaps? Short of moving everything off the vfat partition and recreating it with W7, how do I fix it? I think W7 uses some sort of extended fat32 now?

Hardware :: HDD Recognized In Ubuntu 9.04 But Partially On Windows

Mar 11, 2010

I'm actually using both system, Ubuntu 9.04 and Windows XP, I got an HDD Western Digital (WD4000YR) with 400GB capacity, I have this weird problem (confirmed on other MoBo's with the same problem):
Power on the PC > In BIOS, disk capacity is 150GB > Start on Linux > In linux, disk capacity is correctly display: 400GB > Reboot > Start on Windows > disk capacity is correctly display: 400GB
Power on the PC > In BIOS, disk capacity is 150GB > Start on WINDOWS > in Windows, disk capacity is incorrectly display: 150GB

Linux its the solution to my problems, if I start on linux and then i REBOOT to windows works fine, but it doesn't if I turn OFF the PC. I need both systems due to incompatible software. My question is: Why in LINUX the disk works fine and if I reboot the disk continues doing just fine? What linux do that windows doesn't on the disk thing? I though maybe adding a line in windows option of the GRUB or something.

What I tried:
Fill with zeros using the WD tool, resign and format in Windows
Fill with zeros using the WD tool, resign and format in Linux
Format in Windows
Format in Linux

I have to say that the disk works great, when I do that (start linux then reboot to windows) the disk works just great, I had large movie files in there and works. So maybe the disk its not.

Ubuntu :: Dual Boot - Partition Not Recognized In Windows

Jul 3, 2010

I'm running a dual boot of Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows 7. For months now everything has been just wonderful. Recently, however, I tried to add another partition (in windows) and saw that my Ubuntu partition is recognized as RAW. I formatted it as NTFS originally. In Ubuntu, it is recognized correctly (ext4). I don't know what's going on. I'd like to be able to install drivers to recognize this partition in Windows. Will I have to reformat? I'm not sure if it's at all connected, but probably worth mentioning: while booting into Ubuntu, I received an error about "usplash mode failed." It also said something about "mount of filesystem failed." (I really, really wished I had written down the error message.) Everything seems to work now.

General :: Switching Between Windows Would Cause A Network Adapter To Stop Being Recognized?

Feb 15, 2011

I am using Linux and Windows 7 on the same machine and my on-board NIC is functional under both. However, the weirdest thing happens when I browse the internet under Linux and then return to Windows; my NIC stops being recognized! This happens under Windows but also in Linux when I return! This problem is then easily fixed by resetting the CMOS, but inevitably occurs again. Why does this happen? Update The CMOS reset works but is not necessary for me. Shutting down and unplugging the power cord works as well.

Ubuntu :: Printer Not Recognized After Connection To Windows Image Through VMware

May 25, 2011

I am testing to see whether after connecting to an Image on a server with VMware View Open Client I can get it to add a local desktop connected printer(usb). In Ubuntu 10.04 I have made this printer the default and printed a test page just fine, but when I go through VMware to a Windows Image all I can see are the printers that are connected to the local network. need to be able to deploy this to any location and add or see printers on the fly. As when it goes into the field it will be on a Wi-fi card to connect to the Windows Image through VMware. Am I missing a driver, or do I need to add something in the Startup Applications so it see's the printer outside of Ubuntu?

General :: Windows 7 - Any Drawback For Using NTFS ?

Apr 12, 2011

I use linux for work (perform c++ calculations, latex) and I use windows for entertainment (dj software, tablet functionality). I'd like to access (read and write) to my linux partition from windows.

I heard coLinux is an answer but it will probably make things complicated.

So far i heard that the only problem with using NTFS for linux is it's slower. This is not good for work.

I was thinking partitioning my drive so that my home directory with all the config files is NTFS and the root and work directory is ext4. any drawbacks to that?

What should I do now. Could I manage to install Ubuntu without completely formatting the system all again.

Ubuntu Installation :: Network Drivers Not Recognized On Windows 7 After Dual Boot

Jul 14, 2011

I have a HP g6t, previously fully running 11.04. I wanted to root my HTC evo 4g so I decided I *needed* to install windows 7. I created a 20GB partition with gParted, then downloaded and burned .iso of windows 7 my laptop came packaged with (windows 7 home premium 64-bit). However, after installing, Windows now refuses to recognize ANY of my network drivers. This means my ethernet connection (was plugged in during set-up) as well as my wireless card.

Stats via lspci:
Network controller: Ralink corp. Device 5390
Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RT8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet Controller (rev 05)
