trouble mounting pendrive on RHEL AS5


Hi all,

I am trying to mount pendrive on AS5 with /dev/sdb as it shows the /dev/sdb when I connect the pendrive, but when I try to mount it, it shows
"hfs:unable to find HFS+ superblock"
Mount:you must specify the filesystem type.

can anyone help me.

Regards.

If the partitions on the device are being recognized, there should also be device entries such as /dev/sdb1. It is this partition that would normally be mounted.

If you only have /dev/sdb in your /dev directory, then you might need explain more about if/how the pendrive has been formatted.

You should try to mount partitions and not the device as a whole as mentioned above. So connect the device and then as root run fdisk -l. It should be sdb as a device and sdb1 as partition that you should mount.
