- Mount exited with exit code 13 2 answers
When I attach my harddisk, it gives the following message:
Error mounting /dev/sdb1 at /media/gunnar/My Passport: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077,fmask=0177" "/dev/sdb1" "/media/gunnar/My Passport"' exited with non-zero exit status 13: $MFTMirr does not match $MFT (record 3). Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1': Input/output error NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for more details.
Anyone know what to do about this? It works just fine with my Windows PC.
And, - I am the COMPLETE amateur with Linux commands, so please be gentle with me , and keep it extremely simple. Thanks in advance.
