I have:

System: Ubuntu x64 3.5.0-23-generic
Hardware: Dell D630 and SATAII mini-pcie controller sil3132

...and huge problem, because my disk connected to this controller is not detected.

sudo fdisk /dev/sdb

fdisk: unable to read /dev/sdb: Input/Output error

sudo mount /dev/sdb /media/

mount: /dev/sdb: can't read superblock

Disk's not listed in sudo fdisk -l and fstab but...

ls /dev/sd*

/dev/sda  /dev/sda1  /dev/sda2  /dev/sda5  /dev/sdb 

and

sudo lshw -c disk

  *-disk

Vertex is my main disk and Hitachi is hdd I want to mount. There is Win7 and NTFS file system.


Windows also not detecting any drive and devmgmt shows that the device(Sil3132 sata controller) can not start(Code 10) but he's a fully functional - I check it out on different nootebook. There's message on startup that disk was found but I can't boot system from it.

I also have a Hitachi disk with superblock issues, both ntfs and ext4 partitions on it. Common denominator? And recently it started having more and more bad sectors. Smart says everything is ok, but every couple of days, my FS becomes unresponsive until reboot. –  Zlatko Oct 15 '13 at 18:43
