Mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock missing codepage or other error
 
Hello,

I am running a CentOS vm on a Windows 7 host and I recently installed the latest version of guest additions (3.2.8) when I received the error:

Code:

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

when trying to mount an external hard drive to the guest. I have done this procedure many times with no errors but now for whatever reason I don't know what happened. Please, let me know if you have any suggestions on how to fix this!

Thank you very much!

I think you made a typo: mount -t vboxfs ...

you turned the s and f around :-)

I don't think it's a typo. I tried it both ways and it still didn't work.

Same error?

Anyway, the cause can also be that the share is not provided to the system or provided with a different method than the vbox shared disk solution... or the path to the share does not exist on the host, causing a bad block being provided... just some grabbing from my high hat ;-) Good luck finding the cause!
