Flapping (reconnecting) external USB drive


Hi gurus, during playing movie via VLC or SMPlayer I get several time the error that file cannot be read. File was stored on external USB disk. During this error I get another dialogue message that says the new removable disk was connected..., just as if power goes off and on again or if I power on external disk. But I grep the logs and found some weird mesages (dmesg and /var/log/messages truncated outputs):


SMART returned this (tried options -d [ata|scsi|auto], but finally -d sat worked (because of issue with external disk or something simmilar)):

Code:
[pista@HP-PC ~]$ sudo smartctl -a -d sat /dev/sdc > /tmp/sdc

I had this problem when using automount on some usb hdd, so I mounted it manually, & I could use it OK. Might work for you.

Thank you very much for reply. I am not aware of any automounter, as I said when I plug usb disk it mounts automatically, if you mean that. Now I am running the same external disk on another machine with some outdates patches and updates. No troubles appears so far. However this machine also has this "automounter" capability. Bellow is configuration of this "outdatet" machine.

I don't see anything in your listing to that effect, but the behaviour of your drive was the same as mine with it constantly renewing the drive designation, that was why I suggested to manually mount it.
(Sorry I can't help any further.)

Thank you very much, just two last questions
1. what did you mean by automounter ? I is feature that mount something automatically when you plug USB disk. Or it is feature that will mount some directory after ucess will access it http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Automount-4.html ?

2. If I may ask, how did you observe that manual mounting will help ? It was trial-and-error method or you have some debugger or how ?

Thank you very much.

Looking at http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Automount-4.html brings me to suspect this may be your trouble :-

Quote:
There are two files in /etc, one called auto.master and one called auto.misc. A sample auto.master looks like this:

/auto /etc/auto.misc --timeout=60

The first entry is not the mount point. It's where the set of mount points (found in the second entry) are going to be. The third option says that the mounted filesystems can try to unmount themselves 60 seconds after use. You will have to stop using the disk before unmounting it.
The above says that it will be unmounted if unused for 60 seconds; that would be the reason that it unmounts & remounts onto a different drive designation. Try commenting out --timeout=60, or increase it to something like an hour.

As to how I determined a manual mount might cure the problem was down to experience of using Linux for several years. :-)
(It's a long time since I've used RPMs; I'm a Debian user.)

HTH

Hello, there is no such /etc/auto.* files on my distro. However I will try to remount the external harddrive (in spite of it is mounted out of the box) as you suggested ASAP. If you could write post about your problem determination techniques it would be worth reading not only for me

Most of my experiences were because I started using the command line & reading man pages.

Take a look here if you want some help getting started :-
http://linux.2038bug.com/rute-home.html

(That is a very useful book you can download for free.)
