I don't know if this has happened to anyone else before, but I've googled everything I could about it and got nowhere. So, I'm posting here.
Um, as long as I've used Ubuntu, I'm still pretty basic about it. So, my computer died while I was away from home (yes, I leave my laptop at home), and when I came back, plugged in charger, and booted up, my homescreen suddenly has a drive icon for something labeled 2.1 GB Volume. I realise this is probaly a storage device, but I haven't plugged in anything aside from a mouse and a keyboard (piano) to it.
Whenever I attempt to mount it, I get an error full of coding gibberish.
Error mounting /dev/sda5 at /media/**/aa56b0de-b6ca-364a-a7b1-ee9b53b18dfa: Command-line `mount -t "hfsplus" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid" "/dev/sda5" "/media/**/aa56b0de-b6ca-364a-a7b1-ee9b53b18dfa"' exited with non-zero exit status >32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda5, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
Please help you guys, and sorry if this is a stupid question. I'm really good with Windows coding, but Mac and Linux coding is like German to me.
Also, this is not a life threatening problem, as far as I know. Just annoying, as I get popups about it occasionally. So, immediate answers are not needed (though appreciated).
