I have an older Western Digital HD with Ubuntu 7.10 (I think that's the distro) installed on it. Has a bunch of files I want off but my current desktop isn't IDE. I put the old HD in a USB enclosure and switched it to slave but as of yet am not getting it to mount either on my current Ubuntu 9.10 system or on a Winblows Vista system. They both see the usb but don't mount it.
tail -f /var/log/messages
Which gave me:
Nov 20 11:46:22 desktop kernel: [ 4111.724039] usb 2-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 35
Nov 20 11:46:22 desktop kernel: [ 4111.857042] usb 2-4: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Nov 20 11:46:22 desktop kernel: [ 4111.860564] scsi37 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
But no mount point... does this have something with my system trying to use "SCSI emulation"?
Any ideas? I'm going to drink a glass of wine... maybe that will help
Thanks a bunch!
