General :: Unable To Mount Portable Hard Drive On Ubuntu?

Apr 5, 2010

My portable hard drive (WD My Passport), which used to work correctly now does not automount on my Ubuntu system. It does work on a Windows machine or even when plugged into WD HD TV, which is a Linux based device. There's one NTFS partition spanning the whole drive.When I plug the disk in, I see the following in dmesg:[269259.504631] usb 1-2.2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 20[269259.604674] usb 1-2.2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choiceHowever it does not mount in GNOME and I don't see it when I type:sudo fdisk -lAny suggestions why this might be? I repaired the partition using chkdsk on Windows, so the issue is probably not filesystem related.

Ubuntu :: ERROR Mounting Portable USB Drive

Jul 13, 2011

I have spent the summer and just got my few must-have Windows programs over to Ubuntu 11.04 (64-bit), got it customized with Docky (under Ubuntu Classic) and everything is SWEET. (But don't get me going on Unity dock). One problem: if I boot with my 1TB portable hard drive plugged in Ubuntu will recognize it. If I plug a portable drive in after the boot, I get this error below. I tried Mounting manually and with Archive Mount

Ubuntu Installation :: Does Portable USB Write To Hard Drive

Jun 20, 2011

If I have Ubuntu installed on a USB drive and run it on a PC (not installing to the PC...just running the Live version), is anything at all written to the host PC's hard drive? I don't want the host PC's hard drive to be written to at all for security purposes. I'd be using Firefox, LibreOffice, and other apps that come with the Live USB version.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Read USB Portable Drive

Jan 7, 2011

I removed my old 160Gb laptop drive to install a new 320Gb drive. The 160Gb drive is partitioned as follows: 20Gb unallocated partition, 115Gb ext3 partition (running ubuntu 10.04), and 5Gb swap.

I placed this drive in a portable enclosure so that I could retrieve data from it. The Disk Utility in Ubuntu recognizes the drive but the partitions are not recognized, shows unknown and the only option available is to format the volume. If I place the drive back into my laptop, the drive boots normally and data is accessible.

I have connected other portable USB drives and they work (NTFS formatted), so USB ports are not the problem.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Install Multi-Disc Game - Unable To Eject CD-RW / DVD RW Drive DBus Error

Apr 22, 2010

I'm trying to install The Sims 2 (which I'm aware currently does not run properly in wine anyway), using the multi-CD version. The installation goes normally, up until it comes time to switch from disc 1 to disc 2. The installer prompts me to insert disc 2, but it seems that Ubuntu still believes that the installer doesn't want me to open the drive, because, when I try to open it, it doesn't open, and a window pops up with the following message: Unable to eject CD-RW/DVD RW Drive DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed: An operation is already pending

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.

Ubuntu :: Lovinglinux - Portable Version Of Firefox On USB Flash Drive Is Really SLOW

Jul 22, 2010

I have a portable version of Firefox on my USB flash drive. It is really SLOW. I have turned off all of the disk-caching options and have even set it to not remember my history. I only have three addons: NoScript, Adblock+, CS Lite. I could even get rid of CS Lite and manage my cookies totally manually if it means I'll have a faster GUI. Almost every time I interact with Firefox in any way I have to wait a few seconds and I get that damned spinning beach-ball (did I mention it's the OSX version?).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Difficulty With Portable Hard Drive

Jan 25, 2010

I'm a recent convert from windows machines to linux. From the first distro I tried I was blown away by how great linux is. But opensuse, while it has taken me a little bit longer to figure a few things out, has by far the best. It even allows me to configure my touchpad so it doesn't drive me insane.On to my actual problem. the portable harddrive placed all my files on to when switching from windows mounts but shows up empty.I know the files are there because they show up when i plug the harddrive into my ps3.

I put the all the files i wanted to save from windows into a folder called portableharddrive (i think) and put that folder on to the portable harddrive.if i do a directory search by running the drive in terminal this is what i get.Can anyone help me find my files or do i have to wait untill my girlfriend gets her computer back?

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Login After Replacing Hard Drive?

Jul 14, 2011

I am running OpenSuse 11.4 with Gnome3, with 2 hard drives. One is for the system and has three partitions - root, swap, and home. The second is only data storage. Last week I started getting popups stating I had a hard drive going bad. I checked SMART status in disk utility and had several bad sectors on the system drive, so I cloned the drive to a new one with Clonezilla. Here is where everything went kooky. When I booted the new disk I had a ton of errors at boot along the lines of unable to find a drive. Upon closer inspection I realized the the system located the drives by device id instead of the traditional /dev/sdx. So I started playing with grub settings but never could get it to stop looking for the old hdd. Next, I popped in my net install disc and found I could do an upgrade install which proceeded normally. When I rebooted, no more boot errors, but I get to the black screen with spinning cursor and it will not proceed any further, I even let it run overnight and when I woke up, spinning cursor. As for troubleshooting, I was able to CTRL+ALT+F2 to a console and log in as root successfully but not as a user. When I try to log in as a user, I enter my username, then password, the "have a lot of fun" flashes by quickly and I am returned to a login prompt. I logged in to the console as root and created a new user and tried logging in again, but same thing. I am able to do an ls -l on /home/mike and all my files are there and the listed permissions look ok. I am at a loss as to what to try next. My old hdd will still boot, I just pulled it to reduce risk af data loss. I have never used auto yast before but I always see the prompt for it during an install. Can I clone the system with auto yast on to a different hard drive. Does it strip the by-device-id from the image? Which logs should I check?
