mounting other hard drive?


Hi everyone
i have 3 hard drives
80G hda for windows
200G hdb for documents, i partition this one into 50G and 150G
20G hdd for linux hdd

fdisk -l says
hdb1 wat95 fat32(LBA)
hdb2 w95 ext'd (LBA)
hdb5 w95 fat32

i can mount my hda, hda1 perfectly but when i try hdb5 it complains

This is what i get when i try

mount -t auto /dev/hdb5 /mnt/d
or
mount -t ntfs /dev/hdb5 /mnt/d

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb5,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

and this is what i got after dmesg | tail

i810_rng: RNG not detected
hw_random: RNG not detected
pci_hotplug: PCI Hot Plug PCI Core version: 0.5
shpchp: shpc_init : shpc_cap_offset == 0
shpchp: shpc_init : shpc_cap_offset == 0
shpchp: Standard Hot Plug PCI Controller Driver version: 0.4
pci_hotplug: PCI Hot Plug PCI Core version: 0.5
pciehp: PCI Express Hot Plug Controller Driver version: 0.5
NTFS driver v1.1.22 [Flags: R/O MODULE]
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev 03:45.

Is there any way to get arround this?
Thank You

well since u said it was fat32, try mounting it as vfat, not ntfs.

what distro are you using? (always include this.. or add it in your info on the left)

u said you partitioned hdb into 2 partitions.. yet the output you posted said there were 3 partitions on it; hdb1,2 and 5. which is it?

200gb.. sounds like it would be a newer drive, with IDE connection.

does the manufacturer/cd have special drivers for it?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

He does in fact have 2 partitions--hdb5 consumes all of the hdb2 extended partition.

fdisk tells you the partitions, but not if they are formatted (annoying little quirk). Have you formatted hdb5? Look at man mkfs for details.

You are getting good responses in both threads, the other seems to be a little more used, so I'll close this one.

In the future, please note Michaelk's message http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...71#post2032771

Thanks!
