External USB Hard Disk
How can I view an external USB hard disk formatted by Windows XP (FAT) using Mandrake 10.1??
Any help appreciated.
You have to mount it.
First issue "mount" command to see wheather it is already mounted.
If it is not mounted, create a directory. This is where you would access your drive. This could be something like /mnt/xp
Get to a terminal as root. Try this
If everything went successfully, you would be able to view it under /mnt/xp
Note: See the following post by okmyx too
Plug it in and check your 'dmesg' output to see if the kernel regonizes the device.
Although Mandrake should auto-mount a usb device particularly seeing as it is FAT formatted.
