It sounds like you may need to reformat you external hard drive. It will be one of 2 format types but I can't remember which one you need of the top of my head. It will either be FAT32 or NTFS. When you format with windows it will give you a drop down menu. Try both I think you need FAT32 but if this does not work try NTFS. Good luck

I went through this recently. I ran a Lenovo laptop with Windows 10. I set it up to dual boot Windows 10 with Ubuntu 15.04.

A corrupted image (have you run an md5 checksum to verify the image?, if not then please do, and if they don't match, download the iso image again). If the errors are still not ...

If you use fstrim with full-disk encryption (i.e.: LUKS) then your entire hard drive will be filled from the start (with noise) and fstrim won't help at all. Over-provisioning should not be discounted when doing full-disk encryption. I try to leave a partition of "free space" that is outside the encryption container, but I am having problems with that with ...

You may also be able to set the power options by going to System Settings -> Power, and ...
