Exclamation HELP!!! Can't mount filesystem!!!


I can't seem to mount my drive anymore, this is the error I get:

# mount /dev/VG_Storage/LV_Storage /storage/
/dev/VG_Storage/LV_Storage: Inappropriate ioctl for device
mount: /dev/VG_Storage/LV_Storage: can't read superblock

It's a reiserfs filesystem, and I'm not sure how to get past this can anyone help?

Thanks,

SteelTitan

I tried reiserfsck with both --check and --rebuild-sb and this is what happens:

# reiserfsck --check /dev/VG_Storage-LV_Storage

bread: Cannot read the block (2): (Invalid argument).
reiserfs_open: bread failed reading block 2
bread: Cannot read the block (16): (Invalid argument).
reiserfs_open: bread failed reading block 16

reiserfs_open: the reiserfs superblock cannot be found on /dev/VG_Storage-LV_Storage.

Failed to open the filesystem.

If the partition table has not been changed, and the partition is
valid and it really contains a reiserfs partition, then the
superblock is corrupted and you need to run this utility with
--rebuild-sb.

Aborted




# reiserfsck --rebuild-sb /dev/VG_Storage-LV_Storage
reiserfsck 3.6.18 (2003 www.namesys.com)
bread: Cannot read the block (2): (Invalid argument).
reiserfs_open: bread failed reading block 2
bread: Cannot read the block (16): (Invalid argument).
reiserfs_open: bread failed reading block 16

reiserfs_open: the reiserfs superblock cannot be found on /dev/VG_Storage-LV_Storage.

reiserfs_create: can not create that small (0 blocks) filesystem
