I'm trying to mount a 1TB Western digital hd that was appearing fine yesterday before I reinstalled ubuntu 12.04. I used to have a dual boot windows 7/ubuntu 12.04, and my 1TB drive would show up fine from either OS. Today, I wiped my boot drive in order to use it all for Ubuntu 12.04, i.e., remove windows 7, and now I'm trying to mount the 1TB drive to /media on my new installation without much success.
Here is the
fdisk output for the device I'm trying to mount:
Disk /dev/sdb: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders, total 1953525168 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x6f25ce66 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdb1 * 63 1953523119 976761528+ 42 SFS
I tried running
sudo mount /dev/sdb /media, I get:
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
If I try to run
sudo mount -t sfs /dev/sdb /media, I get:
mount: unkown filesystem type 'sfs'
I also tried mounting as
ntfs-3g, and a few other types, but of course it says 'device doesn't seem to have a valid ntfs' etc.
How can I mount this HD?
