My MyBookworld enclosure died, i have removed the hard drive from the housing and managed to mount it in my PC. I looked at it with Partition Assistant and it says it is ext3. I have created a USB with Ubuntu 13.10 on it and booted the PC, when i look at in the Disks it states it is Linux Raid FAT 12.

I have tried to mount it as stated in some other forums, but am having no luck, I was hoping some one may be able to help me.

If i run fdisk -l this is the result:

root@ubuntu:/home/ubuntu# fdisk -l

This doesn't look like a partition table
Probably you selected the wrong device.

Partition table entries are not in disk order

I have made a directory /media/abc (this is created)

When I try and mount it using:

mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb4 /media/abc I get this:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb4,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

dmesg | tail results in this:

I have tried it replacing ext3 with xfs as suggested.

Any help appreciated, complete newbie to Ubuntu.

Thanks Caz
