Mounting GPT 3 TB hard drive under CentOS 6.5


Hello everyone,

I have a SATA 3 TB hard drive that had to convert from a MBR partition table to a GPT parition table due to MBR's limit of 2 TB. The hard drive was formatted under Windows 7 as a NTFS partition with data on it. I'm trying to mount it to a CentOS 6.5 computer with the mount command but I receive error message "WARNING: GPT (GUID Parition Table) detected.... I have installed ntfs-3g drivers and confirmed that I can mount other NTFS hard drives with no problems. Is it possible to mount this hard drive with another command? I can't reformat this computer since I don't have another hard drive to backup the data on it. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Post the command you used and all messages - and maybe any dmesg of interest.

the built in tools do not YET support gpt

this command will ALWAYS FAIL with an error
Code:
su -
fdisk -l
however
if you place a mount point in the fstab file it will moult
or
if you let udev do it
it will just AUTO mount
/mount/??? some uuid name???

plug in the usb drive
and reboot
it should auto mount and show up on the left window of Nautilus in "places"

and it should just do it without you needing to do anything

I should have mentioned that I'm doing this in command mode only as root. The command that I'm doing is

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb and I've tried -t auto. If I reboot with the hard drive plugged in via USB or internal SATA cable it will not auto-mount. Thanks for your comments.
