mount refusing to mount lvm volumes

Having trouble mouting my LVM volume.
[root@localhost ~]# mount -a -t ext3 -nodev /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /mnt/data -onouuid,ro
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00,
or too many mounted file systems
(could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)

perhaps it is the wrong type because am not sure what type it is
I use FC3. This volume isn't on my main drive but on my sata

Is it formatted as ext3?

Post the output of:

lvscan # Or “lvm lvscan” depending on your setup
e2fsck -f /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00

You should be able to simply mount it as:

mount /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /mnt/data

as long as it is formatted. If it is unformated, it won’t mount, since there is nothing to mount.
