While both external and internal hard drives are susceptible to encountering problems through power surges or outages, external hard drives are at greater risk of damage due to receiving power through its own, independent power cable. The power cable itself can become damaged which causes a power outage to the external hard drive causing it to fail. ...

I had the same issue after duplicating an HFS+ partition so I though I might share my solution. I solved it by running a Disk repair from Mac Os Disk Utility application. You can run it from a Macos install or the Recovery DVD.

You should be able to connect and disconnect your USB keys using Virtual Box device menu. You can also disable it from the command line like this: VBoxManage controlvm "VMName" usbdetach usbid or VBoxManage controlvm "VMName" usbattach usbid This should allow you to script it.

If I'm not mistaken, windows needs to be on the first partition of the drive to boot properly. It may be a pain, but you may have to back up your ubuntu install. Reformat your first partition to ntfs, install windows, then after completed install ubuntu on the next partition then apply your backups. This should get grub setup proper for you as well. If ...

Many live CD images are actually hybrid CD/USB images, so they can be copied directly to either a CD or USB drive with dd and will work either way. This is true of all Ubuntu and Debian official live CD images over the last few years, and may be true of other distros. dd if=cdimage.iso of=/dev/xxx Where /dev/xxx is the USB drive. In cases where that ...

If your problem is still not solved after more conventional suggestions from others, please try the following.

I guess you have the developer options turned on. Once you turn that off there is a chance that your phone will be detected on Ubuntu. I don't why that happens, but that was the issue with my phone.

There are a lot of files which get written on the root filesystem you will have to track down: sudo find / -newer <some file from yesterday> -print Then figure out which need to be replaced links to a file in /tmp, which you can set up in /tmp from a script you run from /etc/rc.local.

Your USB is most probably going into autosuspend. Did you install TLP by any chance?

There are two ways of installing Ubuntu on a Mac. Legacy Boot - Use the Mac variant of Ubuntu which you can download from here. Install rEFInd before you install Ubuntu.

Answers suggesting UNetbootin are mostly misleading. While it is correct that Ubuntu Mac images use or setup BIOS emulation on Macs, UNetbootin is only for booting legacy PCs.

I dont believe there is, but im no expert. You could, however, stream the cam. There are probably loads of programs to do this. Start with VLC. For command line, ffmpeg (or avconv whichever you prefer).

If it's a full install, it won't work (write failure). If it's the install-USB (live CD on USB), then no problem. It was designed that way. All changes are made in ram.

Yes you can. The netboot approach This page will guide you through obtaining the files necessary to boot the Ubuntu installation from a FAT or NTFS partition, thus allowing you to install Ubuntu without any sort of removeable media.

Resolved, the problem was that instead of having a EFI/Legacy option in my BIOS, it listed each entity twice when selecting a boot device. All I needed to do was select "UEFI: (USB Drive Name)" when installing off the live USB. Thanks Oldfred for helping :)

The USB has been set according to instructions. The NRoute is working properly except for the positioning data from my Garmin GPS18X USB. I also have an external VERBATIM hard drive which does not connect with its USB. I'm using an HP Compac 6910p with the latest Virtualbox VM with updates and WindowsXP professional.

You likely need to set up USB support for VirtualBox, assuming nRoute is otherwise working correctly in your Windows guest. To do this, please refer to How to set up USB for Virtualbox?

Open a terminal window and enter this command sudo apt-get install unetbootin to install Unetbootin from the Ubuntu repositories. Once added to your system, plug in the flashdrive, launch unetbootin, select the version of *buntu you have already downloaded, and unetbootin will create a bootable LiveUSB drive.

As far as I know this will be impossible USB devices are mounted with their name so you need to alter the name of the device. Test with 2 different pendrives: Open disks from dash. 4,1 Gb Cruzer, Renaming to "usbdisk". Click the cogwheel in the middle (below the orange volume). 16.1 Gb, BSix, Renaming to "usbdisk". The Cruzer is now mounted ...

Hashes of individual files contained in the ISO image are stored in the root folder as md5sum.txt. Running md5sum -c md5sum.txt in the same folder should perform a consistency check.

This sounds like a classic case of system load to me. When you read/write something to/from a drive, it needs to lookup file information. However, that file may be fragmented, in different locations, or even organized. When you copy something from your drive to a USB, you have to read a (potentially) fragmented file and then re-write it to another storage ...

Simply copying over the iso to the usb doesn't make it bootable. You need to use an application like pendrivelinux or unetbootin to make a bootable USB. These tools extract the individual files from the iso and copy them to the USB and then overwrite the bootloader of the usb itself, thus making it bootable. The above activity will erase all data from your ...
