Mounting Problem - NTFS/SFS - Large Dynamic Drive


Hi, I migrated from WIN2K to Linux this summer.
Now I've run into some problem.

Yesterday I bought i new hard drive so i could copy the content of my old NTFS drives and make EXT drives of them, and also there's a LAN comming up.
Everything went smoothly until i tried to mount an WD 320GB drive.

As you can see my drive is partioned into two, the problem is that it's not supposed to be:
Code:
fdisk -l

...

Disk /dev/hdf: 320.0 GB, 320072933376 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 38913 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hdf1               1       16709   134215011   42  SFS
/dev/hdf2           16710       38913   178353630   42  SFS

...
I've tried to mount it with ntfsmount (ntfsprogs 2.0.0)
with mount /./. /./. -t fuse.ntfs
and with mount /./. /./. -t ntfs-3g
Code:
mount /dev/hdf1 /disks/WD320 -t ntfs-3g -o gid=adm,umask=003
NTFS signature is missing.
Failed to startup volume: Invalid argument
Failed to mount '/dev/hdf': Invalid argument
The device '/dev/hdf' doesn't have a valid NTFS.
Maybe you selected the wrong device? Or the whole disk instead of a
partition (e.g. /dev/hda, not /dev/hda1)? Or the other way around?
AND
Code:
mount /dev/hdf /disks/WD320 -t ntfs-3g -o gid=adm,umask=003
NTFS signature is missing.
Failed to startup volume: Invalid argument
Failed to mount '/dev/hdf': Invalid argument
The device '/dev/hdf' doesn't have a valid NTFS.
Maybe you selected the wrong device? Or the whole disk instead of a
partition (e.g. /dev/hda, not /dev/hda1)? Or the other way around?
(don't know in wich log to find the other mounts)

But i can only mount hdf1, not hdf2. When hdf1 is mounted i can see the content but not copy or read it.
As you can see i could't mount it at all with ntfs-3g

Don't know if i missed something, but i tried to find anything that would help me, but no luck...

(and i'm sorry if i got my english wrong...)

have you tried to repair it under windows ?

Take care, Windows signs hard disk, so you won't copy bit to bit your NTFS partitions.

what do you mean?

If you talking about copy data from NTFS drive to EXT drive so i as i said i've bought a hard drive yesterday. So i had an empty drive do start with.

I've allredy copied data from other NTFS drives back and forward to get the drives in EXT FS. I only have problem with this 320 GB drive.
All drives are in linux format except for this drive.

May I mistake, but NTFS under Linux is still under development !

For me, there's a mistake on your partition ID, it should be 7 not 42.

Did you reboot after partitioning ?

The partioning on the HDF drive is done under windows. A dynamic drive over 200 GB becomes partioned, but you dont see it.

The other drives that where dynamic also had the ID 42, and SFS as FS, but they were under 200 GB (one partion) so i only needed to mount them as NTFS to copy from them...

I dont need to be able to write to the disk, i only want to be able to copy the content to a drive with Linux FS.
