I'm getting an error when I plug in my 1TB USB external HDD, the weird thing about this is that it was working fine before and I've been using it for about a couple of months now. yesterday I compressed one of the folders which had about 120GB of data but the compression failed after an hour and I decided to unmount the drive and shut everything down.
Today when I tried to plug in the drive I got the following error:
Error mounting: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
output of cat
muzikayise@muzikayise-supercom:~$ sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdc

please will someone kindly assist with this?
thanks in advance,
muzi 20110203: Ok i had a look and as Jet suggested the partition table is messed up, not sure how that happened. have a look at this below partition details:
muzikayise@muzikayise-supercom:~$ sudo sfdisk -d /dev/sdc > PT.txt muzikayise@muzikayise-supercom:~$ cat PT.txt # partition table of /dev/sdc unit: sectors /dev/sdc1 : start= 0, size= 0, Id= 0 /dev/sdc2 : start= 0, size= 0, Id= 0 /dev/sdc3 : start= 0, size= 0, Id= 0 /dev/sdc4 : start= 0, size= 0, Id= 0
i'm gonna try fix this, not sure how yet but will google for solutions
