I'm using Ubuntu 10.04. My external hdd is not automounted as I connect it and I can't mount it manually using:
sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/external
No error is given but the output of the mount command shows that it is not mounted and shows that the device is detected as,
sudo fdisk -l gives:
Disk /dev/sdc: 2000.4 GB, 2000365289472 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 243197 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x0005f107
and blkid gives,
/dev/sdc1: LABEL="My Passport" UUID="F474B7AA74B76DCC" TYPE="ntfs"
Any help is appreciated.
