External harddisk not wrking properly
I have dual-boot with Fedora Core 5 and Windows XP.
I have a Toshiba external harddisk with the capacity 20.0 GB. I have made three patitions, one primary and two logical.
The problem is the first partition works very well, but the other two partitions have problem.
Whenever I try to access the partitions(which have problem),or whenever I try to copy a file to it, the Windows XP displays a message "Windows delayed write failed". After that either of the partitions doesn't work.
I tried this in the Linux too, but it showed - "Can't mount /dev/sda".
Is this a problem with the harddisk? can it be recovered?
Please help me regarding this as I want to install SUSE into it.
Another thing I noticed is it doesn't detect in any other computer except mine.
