I am trying to mount my external hdd on UBUNTU 17.04 but it is showing following errors.

Device     Boot     Start       End   Sectors   Size Id Type
/dev/sdb1            2048 964419583 964417536 459.9G 83 Linux
/dev/sdb2       964421630 976771071  12349442   5.9G  5 Extended
/dev/sdb5       964421632 976771071  12349440   5.9G 82 Linux swap / Solaris
inspire@inspire-Insp:~$ sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt 

Cmount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error

       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail or so.

Is my HDD dead ? What is the possible conclusion of above error ?

    Possibly related to disk degradation. Consider this article: askubuntu.com/questions/105030/… – The Pizza Overlord Aug 10 '17 at 9:28
  • @ThePizzaOverlord I did what is mentioned in the above post but my hdd is not recognizable by the command sudo fdisk -l – Boris Aug 13 '17 at 6:14
