Ubuntu :: Unable To Mount USB Stick - Cannot Load XWindows
Feb 25, 2010
I tried (unsucessfully) to load the alpha version of Ubuntu 10.04, & now my comp will not even load XWindows at all. I am trying to reload Ubuntu 09.10, (i have it on a flash drive), but cannot even get the thing mounted properly. The error i get is Disk devsdb invalid partition table
I'm unable to mount external drives in thunar. Pcmanfm works fine. Ive tried a 2gb usb stick and a sd card reader. both give the same error. I used to be able to mount drives with thunar. What happened? I'm using ubuntu 9.10, installed lxde on top of server edition. Thunar is 1.0.1 , from the repos. Here is the output from the usb stick:
Failed to mount "2G Removable Volume". mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so .
When I plug in my USB stick (with fat32 filesystem, labeled flash8p1) and then try to mount it from the Places menu, I get an error box that pops up: Unable to mount flash8p1 Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc1,†missing codepage or helper program, or other error†In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail† or so
I don't understand what the dmesg is telling me, but here it is for those who may understand:
I just got my Gnome-flavored Squeeze running this morning, and I'm still working out the configuration. I have disabled automounting and autobrowsing of removable media, but anyway this problem was occuring when I had automounting enabled. I have the OS installed to a 4-GB microSDHC card plugged in to the front of the computer. The computer is a Toshiba Mini NB505.
edit: And now, I just plugged the flash8p1 into a different USB port, and it mounted from the places menu. I wonder, though, if this is related to the fact that I had first mounted it from the command line.
I have a problem in my ubuntu 10.01 that it can't load a drive/volume in ubuntu. When I tried, it said: "Unable to mount location Error mounting: mount: /dev/sda1: can't read superblock". And when I boot my pc with 'Windows', it said : "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" under a blue screen. What can I do to solve this problem?
usb devices, such as external hdd, memory stick and mp3 player, when I connect them to USB, they show up in Nautilus, but when I click on them, Nautilus is unable to mount them and returns the following error: Unable to mount location Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with:mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error in some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
I have system problem about my Ubuntu 10.04 system. after I boot my Ubuntu, The login box is missing from gnome screen. I could not login my graphic system. I can use the command line by ctrl+alt+f1. I used sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start try to restart the xwindows the output isgdm already started I try to
stop gdm start gdm
then the xwindows restarted, but still missing the login box I also try to use
reconfigure the server, but unfortunately there is no change after I restart the genome, I could still not see the login box I am confirm that there are additional spaces on my laptop. I can also enter the graphic system on safe mode by startx command.
Just recently uggraded from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04... I'm not liking 10.04!!
It's messed with my KMail, and NOW I find that when I insert a USB stick, I get the message:
"An error occurred while accessing '7.4 GiB CANON_DC (vfat) [/media/Ext3]', the system responded: mount: only root can mount /dev/sdi1 on /media/Ext3"
What the H**L happened... in 9.10, I put in the stick, and could instantly view/copy/etc. from it in Krusader...
Same result with a USB HDD...
I've read a bunch of posts, and nothing really says how to have Ubuntu simply mount whatever I give it to read... That's what I'm after... I made myself part of the Admin and root groups, but that only changed the error message to show that the system recognized what device I'd plugged in.
It's the lil' things, and 10.04 seems to have a few... So, tried to mount it:
:~$ sudo mount /dev/sdi1 on /media/Ext3 [sudo] password for dkolars: Usage: mount -V : print version mount -h : print this help
I need a guicance related to mounting USB stick of 2GB capacity. Normally when I insert my USB stick it mount automatically and show me.I want that instead the usb mount automatically I manually mount it. Now there are two steps to do it. First How to stop USB to mount automatically ? Second How to mount it manually ?
What can I do to correct the failure of the mount command to load the mem stick. In nautilus it reports that I do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "Kingston". In user settings there is only one user: Robin. The user privileges are showing as all ticked except for send and receive faxes, and use tape drives.
In the group for Robin there is only one member: Robin. Group id is 1000. There are a lot of groups available on the system. They all show Robin as unticked as a group member. To what groups should I make Robin be a member, without compromising security? Using Ubuntu 11.04
I tried Ubuntu Network version on a USB stick on my Netbook Samsung NF210 with 2GB RAM but this does not seem to be a viable way forward to me. Ubuntu on USB stick seems very slow to load. When resuming seemed to throw up errors. Resuming from Windows takes 3 seconds. I am reluctant to dual boot my netbook with Ubuntu after my experiences with my spare laptop. Is there a safe way to install Ubuntu on a netbook to dual boot with Windows Starter? how I get Ubuntu to work with a 'Three' Mobile dongle?
My 16gb usb memory stick now fails to mount. The device can be seen in gparted but partition is shown as unknown. Tried to format but error message popped up "failed". The device is shown in dmesg see below. I had tried to use the device to create a bootable usb but this did not work and the problems happen there after.
dmesg: usb 2-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3 [41796.814297] usb 2-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice [41796.943922] Initializing USB Mass Storage driver... [41796.944228] scsi2 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
i am running Ubuntu 9.10. sometimes my USB device is auto detected and shows up on my desktop other time it is not detected?? anyway i am trying to figure how to Mount it. read about the ETC/FSTAB file and i may need an entry there. following is a copy
# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier # for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name # devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
i did try to update with an entry similar to the cdrom. my fstab is read only so no update. i have read other USB mount problems but not sure about any.
I'd like to be able to manually mount a USB stick in console (before X is started) and I can't seem to find a good way to do that. I'm not too smart about HAL and UDEV and I don't want to undo the auto mount feature when X is running but still be able to manually mount and unmount as necessary; like for installing patches and packages after an install or version upgrade. It seems like there should be an entry in /etc/fstab and a directory in /mnt or /media but danged if I can find something that points the way.
Today I was trying to make a LiveUSB for Fedora 15 with UNetbootin and when I inserted my USB stick, it blinked and then this error appeared: 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
Although I can perfectly mount any usb device (stick or disc) as being root, as a user I am not allowed to perform any such action! I have modified the corresponding fstab entry to look like:
Code: usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto,user 0 0 and I have also made sure that the user is a member of the disk group, but without any luck. My system is OpenSuSE 11.2 (with KDE 4.4, but the problem is the same regardless I am attempting to mount the usb device via the GUI or through the text (c/k)onsole).
I have a few generic USB sticks lying around, and a few more SD/microSD chips that I use with openSUSE. Is there any way to label/ID them so they mount at unique points in /media, so I don't blast one accidentally? In mkfs.vfat there is a "-n volume-name" that looks promising, but I can't find a way to set that after the mkfs.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 running Ubuntu v10.04 with a wireless card.My desktop is a Dell Optiflex running WinXP.The desktop is connected via ethernet cable to a Linksys wireless router. Certain folders on the desktop are set for sharing. Up until early last week I was able to access the desktop folders from the laptop with no issues.Suddenly I am now getting this error "Unable to mount location Failed to mount Windows share" whenever I try to access the desktop folders from the laptop.I suspect an upgrade is the culprit, but not sure.
I have 2 internal drives. One is for the OS and one is for the Data. I tried to get the Data drive to mount automatically at login using some crap I found on a linux blog. Safe to say it didn't work and now I can't mount it with the OS on the OS Drive.
It mounts from a live CD and all the data is perfectly safe. When I try to mount the drive I get this error message: "Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: only root can mount /dev/sdb1 on /media/data" What have I done wrong and how can I make it mount again? Preferably this time at login.
I have been trying to share folders from my main PC which is running Ubuntu 10.04. I have been able to figure out Samba enough to get my a couple of folders shared, but I have been unable to share any folders which are on my external harddrive. After entering the path in my smb.conf file they appear on the network but I am unable to navigate to them. When trying to navigate to them through the network folder on the pc they are actually connected to I get an "Unable to mount location: Failed to mount windows share" dialog box. On the windows pc I am trying to share with I get, "Windows cannot acces \Josh-Desktop ame of folder"
My smb.conf file looks like this:
That folders I cannot access are Music and Videos.
I on a dell latitude c500/c600 and running 9.10 and have a maxtor 160 gb external hd that wont mount right. it shows up in / but when i click on it i get the error message:unable to mount location can't mount file. could someone give a suggestion to get this to work.
