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.

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?

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

Ubuntu :: Permanently Mount External Hard-drive

Mar 17, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: External Hard Drive Won't Mount After Reformat

Apr 9, 2010

I recently reformatted my external hard drive. Somewhere along the way I think my fstab got messed up because now my hard drive won't mount. Instead I get the following error:

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

If I mount it through Gparted, it mounts just fine.

My fstab currently looks like this:

Ubuntu :: USB Hard Drive Doesn't Mount Automatically?

May 28, 2010

The other day a power outage affected an SSH server I have running 9.04 (32-bit desktop ed.). I have two external USB hard drives used for cron-scheduled backups (one for rsync, one for an incremental) that are connected at all times. When I reboot, they no longer mount automatically until I login to the gnome desktop. As far as I can remember, they always mounted automatically before as disk-1 and disk-2, but now I have to login to the gnome desktop and then log back out.

I never had them listed in the fstab before since they just worked, & hope to avoid doing it this way since the drives sometimes get their paths (sdd and sde) interchanged. However, is the best way to fix this to use UUIDs in fstab vs. using sde or sdd? (such as in this post: 4highlight=external+hard+drives+don't+mount+boot Or maybeust remembering incorrectly & ubuntu doesn't mount them automatically until login? Sometimes I have to reboot remotely, & this problem would cause the rsync to fill up my system drive.

General :: Manually Mount Second Hard Drive In Ubuntu 10.10 ?

Apr 26, 2011

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
