I have an external hard drive with the following partitions. I am running Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) on the same ext. hard drive and am unable to mount the NTFS partition on this drive. Could someone help please?
Here's the output of the
fdisk -l command:
Disk /dev/sdf: 1000.2 GB, 1000204885504 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders, total 1953525167 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: 0x0002e048 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdf1 * 2046 716802047 358400001 5 Extended /dev/sdf2 716802048 1953519615 618358784 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sdf5 2048 708788223 354393088 83 Linux /dev/sdf6 708790272 716802047 4005888 82 Linux swap / Solaris
I have tried mounting it using the
mount command with admin privileges as listed here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount/USB. The output is listed below:
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdf2 /media/disk1/ Output:
NTFS signature is missing. Failed to mount '/dev/sdf2': Invalid argument The device '/dev/sdf2' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS. Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?
However on Windows 7 the NTFS partition of this drive mounts perfectly well.
