On my internal hdd I have 4 partitions.two of them are ntfs for windows and the other two are ext3 and swap for suse 11.
The two ntfs partitions on my internal hdd are mounted and I can access them from suse.
The external drive has only one partition including only data like docs,movies etc. And here is my problem.I cant read my external usb drive!!
I already tried to mount it but returns "mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so".
Sry for the mess guys, its my first attemps to set up a linux distribution so I can work on and I am a little confused
Heres the output of fdisk to clear things up:
