from a friend I borrowed an external harddrive to copy some gigabytes from a MAC on college to my Linux system for backup purposes. Unfortunately I'm experiencing issues mounting the drive. I know it's 200Gb devided in three partitions. I only need to mount the first one though.
I'm 100% sure the drive is being recognized since it appears to be /dev/sdb (sda is my USB pen drive) both by fdisk -l /dev/sd*. The command sees gives the following output (I left out the data about my USB drive because being a huge amount of irrelevant data):
Disk /dev/sdb: 200.0 GB, 200049647616 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 24321 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
This looks to me as if the drive is physically being recognized, but my system can't read the formatting.
I tried mounting using the following commands:
1. mount -t hfs /dev/sdb /mnt/ext
2. mount -t hfs /dev/sdb1 /mnt/ext
3. mount -t hfs /dev/sdb-1 /mnt/ext
Nothing works. Anybody got a better idea? Preferrably a working one
