Question USB Hard Disk "Could Not Enter" Error


Dear all,

I have an external 20Gb Hard disk that is divided into 3 partition.
2 NTFS (compressed) and 1 Fat32.

I'm running suse 9.1 with 2.6 core.
The linux detects my hard disk but for some reason it could not mount it.

Here is a list of details I've compiled.

Re:mount usb drive

Hello,

- You can try : fdisk -l /dev/sda
list all partitions on the drive + type
In your log, it shows 4 partitions in place of 3 (1,5,6,7) !!

- create new entries in the /media
/media/usb_drive_part1
/media/usb_drive_part2
/media/usb_drive_part3
it's easier to understand that /media/usb-storage-1200000101E889E0:0:0:0p7

- try a manual mount of the partitions of the drive (depending of the fdisk -l result's)

- create the entries in the /etc/fstab
Now, the system is detecting the usb drive and make a auto mount.

I hope this help you. (let me know)
