Unhappy No external hard discos are displayed


Request your support because you are no longer using a BakAndImgCD LiveCD to make an image of the disk and the external hard disks that are connected are not displayed, the disks are in NTFS format and are USB 3.0 one of 2TB (SEGATE) and the other of 1TB (ADATA) I connect them but I just can not put them to test to be able to mount them, idea of ​​what may be happening, thanks.

Linux distribution: BakAndImgCD (based on 4MLinux)
HP ProBook 440 Notebook PC

Use the command
Code:
blkid, fdisk -l
and only see the Windows partitions and the USB (FAT32) with which I a boot the BakAndImgCD

Sorry for my English

Thanks.

is Windows finding them? if yes then have windows do a disk check on them, if you've used them with windows they may have been set to unusable due to how they were disconnected or windows was shut down.

Your English is good enough that I understand you.
I got a kick out of the word "discos" in the title, as "disco" was a dance craze from the 1970s. It was cleare from the context that you meant "disks".

The "blkid" command works from the /proc/partitions content by default. You might try "lsblk" or "lsblk -fs" instead and see what that tells you. Lsblk works from the sysfs and udb data.

Did you boot with those external devices attached?

Good afternoon

In Windows they work without problems, I have also checked the discs and the discs still do not appear, thanks for responding.

Hi,

Which version? Give its full name (for example: BakAndImgCD-24.0.iso).

Does the "no longer" statement mean that older versions of BakAndImgCD used to work well?

sometime when you issue these commands depending on which distro one is using the root privileges need to be added so it is will. ex..
Code:
sudo lsblk
sudo blkid
sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdX
in the case of lsblk that is probably because it is not installed. if you got apt-get, then sudo apt-cache search lsblk, the sudo apt-get install <prg name>

I added the search because distos can change the package name to whatever, so doing a search on it first to get the name they gave it, or one can shoot in the dark and add what you think its called, then if it fails then do your search for it.


I do wonder then if discos = disk in Spanish then what is the word for disco in Spanish.

Also as stated, try plugging them in first then booting to see if the kernel sees them then loads them into its system. (if you have not already commented on that)

Hello, thanks for responding I started the computer with the connected disks and the result is the same does not recognize them, this distro uses the root by default and when you put the command fdisk -l / dev / sdX sends me the message of:


Code:
Cannot open /dev/sdX: No such file or directory

1) You can execute the "udev" command. Among other things, this command will try to find all your external drivers and mount them under the /media directory.

2) Your computer is quite modern so why are you using BakAndImgCD? Try the full version of 4MLinux (Menu > Maintenance > Data > Backup). BakAndImgCD is about 30MB in size while, for example, firmware in 4MLinux Live CD takes about 250 MB.

3) If neither BakAndImg nor 4MLinux works for you, use some other distro (for example: Clonezilla ).
