Ubuntu :: Change The Mounting Point Of A Usb External Drive From '/media/disk' To '/media/Movies'

Jan 16, 2011

I was trying to change the mounting point of a usb external drive from '/media/disk' to '/media/Movies'

Here is were the stupid part takes over... I right clicked on the desktop icon for the device and selected Properties. From there I selected the Volume tab and in there I changed the mounting point to '/media/Movies' It accepted it and said the changed would take place when I unmounted it and remounted it. However, when I did this it now says it cannot be mounted as it says mount_point contains invalid characters usually /

Unfortunately, now I cannot get back into the properties to remove my error.

Ubuntu :: Mounting New Drive With Media Files?

Feb 2, 2011

I don't know anything about Unbuntu I installed it because I had a virus and I didn't have a copy of windows. I have an extra HD with lots of media on it. At first it seemed to show up but then it disappeared. I did the sudo commands and the disk shows up as sdb. I have no idea what I am doing or what to do and all the guides keep talking about adding partitions and programs I have to dl from the net. This is a stand alone computer with no net connection.

Ubuntu :: External DVD Drive Vanishes From List On Inserting Media?

Jan 20, 2010

I just bought an external USB DVD (ASUS SDRW-08D15-U) to use on a Kubuntu-based LinuxMCE system. The idea is to set up the computer in the basement and to retain the ability to play DVDs on the 2nd floor home theater. Unfortunately the DVD would not play movies, music, or show files when connected to the Kubuntu/LinuxMCE machine. I tested the drive on my windows laptop and it worked fine. Then I connected it to my Ubuntu desktop machine and got the same behavior as on the MCE machine.

This leads me to believe that my hardware is functioning fine, but I have an Ubuntu/Kubuntu issue. I figure if I can get the drive to work on my Ubuntu desktop, then I can apply the fix to my MCE machine. I opened the Palimpsest Disk Utility (System>Administration>Disk Utility) and saw my internal DVD listed (ASUS DRW-1612BL). When I hot-plugged the external DVD it appeared underneath the internal drive. But here is the strange part - when I insert any type of media into the external drive it Vanishes from the list, accompanied by a repetitive pattern of clicking and whirring noises. Very mysterious.

General :: Back Up My Media Library To An External Hard Drive From Ubuntu?

Aug 19, 2010

My media library isn't huge, but it isn't tiny (~50 GB). Every month or so, I just manually copy ~/Music, ~/Pictures, and ~/Videos to my EHD, and delete the old backup. But this is far from ideal. It's pretty slow, for one thing (~50 GB all together). It also isn't versioned, so if I ever want to go back multiple versions, I'm out of luck.

Is there any simple, stable, incremental way to do this? I'm open to using traditional version control systems like Git for it, although I haven't used them before for anything other than code. Command-line is fine (especially if it's scriptable). I only need to back up these 3 folders--anything that's not media is stored in my Dropbox.

Ubuntu Installation :: Natty Upgrade The Disk Drive For /media/XXX Is Not Ready Yet Or Not Present

May 6, 2011

I've tried to use that thread to help but to no avail, i tried to use this:


BUT I CAN'T OPEN A TERMINAL!!! as i am at a point where the screen says: Continue to wait, press S to skip or M for manual recovery. so if i run this command : gksudo gedit /etc/fstab my computer whines about there being no way to show this on the screen, I have tried this:

Use a non-graphical editor, like emacs or vi. Try Ctl+Alt+F3 -- you should get a login prompt. Login to an account with admin privileges (like, the first account you created, for example), and then type 'sudo vi /etc/fstab'; that will open /etc/fstab in the vi editor. Make your changes, save them, exit the editor, reboot... but if you're not used to working with a non-graphics-based editor, you'll have a bit of research to do. It's not hard, though, just tedious.however i have not managed to make it work.

Ubuntu Networking :: Media (Music And Movies) Sharing And Windows

Mar 8, 2010

I am having issues with streaming media (music and movies), well just transfer speeds period, from my Windows Vista desktop PC and my Ubuntu laptop On my Windows PC I have two folders shared: Music and Movies. I also have Media sharing enabled on my Windows PC so that I can stream my music and movies to my Xbox360 and playstation 3. My game consoles have no issues at all with playback speed and quality. My laptop is a dual boot with Windows and Ubuntu.

Streaming to my laptop under Windows is fine. Playback is great and copying files to and from my network shares(Music and Movies folders) is fast. However, under Ubuntu, I've mounted an SMB share to the Windows computer to each folder. When I browse to an MP3 song in VLC, I cannot even listen to it! It'll constantly buffer every few seconds. Forget about trying to watch a movie in VLC either! XBMC and Boxee are useless because they NEVER finish scanning the network folders to even add my content - let alone try to stream them.

Trying to copy 89MB (an album worth of MP3s) from the Windows server to Ubuntu was going to take 8hours! Something is definitely wrong here and I just can't figure it out. Should I be connecting to Windows using some other networking method besides SMB? My network is setup with my Windows Desktop connected via 100MB ethernet to a wireless router. The Router is dual broadcasting in G and N modes. I have excellent connection strength and full network rate (54MB for G) on my laptop. Again, networking is fine when using Windows on the laptop.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: VLC Media Player - Audio Slowly Desyncing In Movies

Dec 24, 2010

I was wondering if anyone noticed that VLC tends to slowly have audio go out of sync during long video files, like a movie. It's hard to notice at first, but eventually you start to notice the audio moves out of sync with the video.

A quick work around to this problem is that I can always quickly hit pause (the audio tends to play for as long as it is out of sync while the video is paused) then quickly hit play.

I know VLC comes with a feature that allows you to adjust the audio for syncing errors, but I find that a bit redundant as the audio will continuously move out of sync as the movie progresses, and thus would require constant maintenance.

I was just wondering if anyone else had this problem and if there were any solutions for it. This problem seems apparent on my iPod touch 4th gen as well and can be fixed with the same work around, however; the syncing issue does NOT exist on my windows vista PC (note: my ubuntu is on a laptop, not my PC)

Sorry for the walls of text: tl;dr? VLC has audio syncing oddities on my laptop running ubuntu but not on my PC running the dreaded vista. Can I fix it without getting massive migraines as my knowledge of linux is very limited?

Edit: If anyone has a recommendation for a better player that supports various media types, I'd be willing to try it. Open source / freeware.

Ubuntu :: Deleting A Mount Point In /media

Oct 9, 2010

I have a bad mount point, I had some mounting problems before, and made this wrong entry, when I mount the volume it works but then the system tells me the hard drive is empty, which is wrong and some kind of error.

My problem here is pretty simple, this point is in /media, but it disappears when the volume is unmounted. I want to delete it and re-mount using the storage device manager, which hopefully will solve the problem.

So how can I delete this entry when it disappears? I don't really want to delete it while the volume is attached and mounted.

Ubuntu :: Why Is Cd/dvd Media Mounting So Sporadic On 10.04

Nov 7, 2010

for some reason/s in ubuntu 10.04 lucid i get the most sporadic and seemingly random results for mounting cd's or dvd's. most of the time they just don't mount and i have to reboot my computer and then they seem to mount. I've been reading the forums and there seems to be many, many many..... posts about this problem in 10.04 as it would seem many people are having issues relating to this.i've tried every thing i can think of to resolve it (although i'm still a bit of a newbie so that might not mean much to the advanced users out there). my system is up to date, i've tried the "boot up with cd/dvd in the drive option", switching my boot order in bios, adding a /media/cdrom0 dir and using mountmanager to automount that drive at bootup but none of these options work for me.


my installation of 10.04 is a fresh install so i don't see why i should be having the fstab issue noted in the posts but maybe i'm wrong.
here's what


dpkg -l hal



| Status=Not/Inst/Cfg-files/Unpacked/Failed-cfg/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend
|/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)


if there is someone's expertise that i can draw upon i would be most sincerely appreciative. in fact that is such an understatement having this issue resolved would be as amazing, for me, as the entire world suddenly becoming friends (...like in the non-facebook kinda way).

Ubuntu :: PSPgo Mounts With Glitchy Name - Mount Point Stays In /media After Unplugged

Feb 23, 2010

Whenever I plug in my PSPgo via USB, it shows up in Nautilus as:


The first line is the system's onboard memory, and the second line is my 16 gig memory card. It used to mount as:


I *cannot* unmount the drive. The computer does not seem to be able to find the mount point to take it off from. When I unmount from Nautilus, it says:


Error unmounting:

If I just unplug the drive, the entry in /media remains as 1C[glitchy box thing][series of underscores] (see screenshot)

I tried looking at the drive in gparted, and it says:



Is my PSPgo becoming corrupt or something? That would be supremely unpleasant. I'd definitely like to avoid that, if at all possible.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Without External Media

Feb 8, 2010

I was recently given an old laptop that runs Windows XP. Obviously, I want to put Ubuntu on it instead. However, the laptop is so old that it does not have a working USB connection; nor does it have a CD tray. I am aware of using Wubi to install an Ubuntu system within Windows, but I was wondering if there were any ways to install a clean Ubuntu system right onto the hard drive, without Windows being required. Or, perhaps, does Wubi have some feature to allow full-drive installation?

Networking :: Access External Media On Ftp?

Sep 2, 2010

I am trying to access an external hard drive mounted on /media/disk_label/ over FTP anonymously. The thing is it does not work as intended.

I tried fiddling with se-linux, manually mounting the media, playing around with file permissions and stuff .. but nothing sufficed.

Things work fine when I set anon_root to a directory on the local hdd but and also with the default /var/ftp but as soon as I set anon_root=/media/disk_label/ftp ..

Ubuntu :: Writing To External Media Is Slow To Finalize?

May 21, 2010

I have a USB hub on my desk, and also a multi-card reader in the front-panel of the computer (connected to a USB PCI card).

I have found that when I write files to a USB "thumb" drive plugged into the USB hub, or to a card in the multi-card reader (I have tried SD, SDHC, CompactFlash and MMC) the file is written quickly. The progress bar that appears on the screen goes to almost 100%, but then stops...

If I try to unmount the filesystem (either umount on the command line, or MB3 and eject or unmount option) I get a message that the device is busy. Sometimes, this stays busy for three minutes.

The filesystems on these cards are almost always FAT32; they are for digital cameras, media players, or are for exchanging files between home and office (where I use WinXP).
