Question Fedora Core 14 and Seagate Central DLNA drive


I have just bought a Seagate Central 4TB SRN01C drive which I can easily access from Windows 8; however, I do not have any idea as to how to access it from Fedora Core 14.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance!

Fedora Core 14 is old and unsupported: Fedora versions (wiki). This might be the reason you have problems accessing Seagate drive. You might want to install an up-to-date version of Fedora.

This drive also seems to be NTFS formatted (Manual).

I'm not sure if Fedora 14 supports this out-of-the-box (have a look here: How do I read my NTFS drive in Fedora?).

The reason I'm running FC14 is that I run the Amahi HDA which requires FC14!

Thanks for the reply, anyway!

If that is the case then have a look at the last link I posted (How do I read my NTFS drive in Fedora?).

If ntfs-3g isn't part of your Fedora 14 then have a look here for an rpm: ntfs-3g rpm build for : Fedora 14

ntfs-3g is not required... A quick search on Seagate's website indicates the Central 4TB is a NAS device. Hopefully the samba client utilities are installed.

It appears the netbios name is Seagate-xxxxxx where xxxxx is the last 6 digits of its MAC (located on the bottom of the unit). You should be able to see it via Nautilus by clicking on network servers.

the dead and unsupported fedora 14
might have issues with the Microsoft formatted 4 tb NTFS drive
it also will NOT support the current ext4 2048 bs
reformat the drive into 4 ext3 partitions

Warning:
but BE ADVISED !!!!

Fedora 14 has KNOWN AND NOW FIXED SECURITY HOLES
holes that are NOW FIXED in 19 - soon to be fedora 20

holes that will NEVER BE FIXED



also IT DOSE support fedora 19
