I'm freaking out! I was trying to make my drives accessible through Plex Media Server... I was following the commands on this page LINK, but I didn't notice/understand that the tutorial was for a partitioned drive... So while my target HDD was sdb, I was giving commands associated with sbd1...
The Plex Media Server can now see and access all my hard drives, but they're not mounted correctly for use within the Ubuntu OS...
For the past day, I've been trying to fix my mistakes, but have only made things worse... I figured i had entered something incorrectly with the fstab text editor, so I started entering the commands for a different tutorial LINK 2that I thought might help... Except after I had already completed it, I realized that this was to get plex to recognize a WINDOWS partition on an HDD... I'M SUCH A NOOB!
I don't know where to start, so I'll go ahead and give the output of
sudo fdisk -l

And here is what my text editor for
