I have two 1TB HDD's formatted in NTFS, one has windows and other stuff i use even on linux and the other is all media. i can mount them easy, but this is a minor annoyance because everytime i log in i must type in my password. is there no way to have them auto mounted on startup?
Does someone know how to reconfigure this? I have three hard drives.
1. Sata 1TB. It has Windows xp and ubuntu 10.10 on it 2. old 30G drive. It has ubuntu 10.04 on it 3. Old 120G with ubuntu 10.04
I installed the oses on each drive by disconnecting the others. So each drive has a boot record, and I can choose by pressing F11 at boot. All ubuntus can see and mount the NTFS partition except the one I installed last. It's on the 120G drive.

I am trying to mount an external USB hard drive. I'm using Debian Lenny 5. I tried to right-click on the hard drive and then select the mount command inside the gnome desktop environment but it gives me an error. Is there an easy way to mount and unmount this hard drive? The hard drive itself is formatted from the factory in NTFS. I'm going to leave it in this file format is a need to use it with Windows machines as well.
Just installed opensuse 11.3 Kdeversion on my laptop. Before installing it on live mode i had a problem of accessing my other drives (NTFS, FAT32 and EXT4) which said HAL system policy...etc mounting error. I could access all drives with root privilege. I thought problem will be solver once i install opensuse on my system. How ever i was really disappointed after seeing the same problem post install. Googled around for the solution and got this link
After this the problem got worse now i am not able to see any of the drives in the side panel. Gone through many forum and posts all discuss about external USB HDD.
I need some assistance in trying to format a USB hard drive to vfat format but can't seem to do so. I am currently using RHEL 5.3. I have tried the following commands and they all come back as "command not found"
I was given a forensic Image which I now know is a DD image of the drive (Vista) and am trying to mount the image or extract the image to another drive. I'm not sure of the extention type or if the image is a partition or the entire drive. I think it is the entire drive.
Is it possible to mount a DD image to a device. If I can't do that I just want to extract the files to run some programs against the drive. Can I view the files under Ubuntu or do I have to remove the drive and stick it into a Vista computer.
I purchased a second drive today and was hoping the command line would be something simple.
Or am I on the wrong track, should I be doing this all in a windows environment. The reason I picked ubuntu was because of the reporting tools.
I am trying to recover some important data from a 273 gig NTFS partition that was used in windows 7. The laptop was dropped and would not boot the next day. As an external drive I could see 2 smaller partitions (30 gig and 500 meg), but the main partition was RAW and requesting to be formatted... so I came to learn about Knoppix 6.2.1 as my live boot cd and ran ddrescue to recover an almost complete image of the bad partitionddrescue -n /dev/sdc1 /media/sda1/image.img /media/sda1/logfile.logI then ran it one more time:ddrescue -r 1 /dev/sdc1 /media/sda1/image.img /media/sda1/logfile.logthe image was made with 741 errors (amounting to 160 megabytes)So Now I have my partition as image.img which I want to mount.
First I tried sudo mount -t ntfs -o loop /media/sda1/image.img /mnt/recovered sudo mount -t ntfs -o loop,force /media/sda1/image.img /mnt/recovered
Is it possible to format a Fat32 Ubuntu system drive to ntfs leaving the program and data undisturbed? I created a gparted liveCD and used it to format a slave drive to ntfs. It worked perfectly. Can the gparted liveCD be used on the master drive similarly without destroying the existing files on it?

is there a way to write/unpack .qcow2 hard disk image directly to real hard drive in Linux?(I know it's possible to unpack .qcow2 to .raw and then dd to drive, but I'd like to skip .raw since its large)
I have an 80gb hard drive that I used in an xbox for xbmc and it was formatted to whatever it needed to be formatted to for it. Now that I want to use it in my computer, I can't format it back to ext4 or NTFS. It's somewhat recognized, but the partition shows up as unknown. Is there a program that I can get to reformat it? idk if gparted will work cuz it won't startup on the live CD. I will give it a shot once I install ubuntu onto the computer.
I was looking in the disk utility today, and i was looking in the hard drive formatting section. in the drop down box, i noticed Apple. does that mean that i could format the rest of my hard drive to be OSX compliant?
I just bought a new 320gb laptop hard drive and mounted it into an external enclosure. The hard drive has never been formatted. I plugged it into my computer running Ubuntu 10.10 and nothing happens. I expected something toopup and say the drive has not been formatted and give me formatting choices. I looked in Places>Computer and it's not there. I even looked in Gparted and it does not show it. So how on earth do I format a new external hard drive?
I wanted to get started with Ubuntu so I partitioned an external hard drive with Ubuntu 11.04 onto it. After finding out my computer couldn't but up from a external hard drive I wanted to format my drive. When I plugged it into my computer, Windows would not recognize it. I then dual booted Ubuntu 11.04 onto my laptop and attached my drive. Ubuntu found it a recognized it as 3 separate disks. I then opened up disk utility and told it to format the drive. After clicking a couple "OKs" I got an error message: An error occured while performing an operation on "500 GB Hard Disk" (Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex): The device is busy I clicked details and got:One or more partitions are busy on /dev/sdb. I was wondering what I could do since it isn't doing anything in the first place. I just want to format the whole thing.
I just tried mounting my Iomega 1tb hard external hard drive, but it doesn't seem to work. The drive doesn't show up in nautilus. When I look at it with parted it shows as a ms-dos filesystem. If I plug it into my imac, it shows doesn't mount either, but in the driveutility it shows up as a fat32.Windows 7 doesn't seem to helpfull as it just says that the drive needs to be formatted.Is there any way to recover my files before I format, or better yet solve this problem without formatting?
I am trying to mount a 2nd NTFS storage disk in my new installation on Ubuntu 10.10, I can see it in the disk manager, but cannot access the files, I tried following the steps on this on another thread and i got the following error:
