[ubuntu netbook remix] Mounting Issues
I recently had an issue with my external hard drive after I shut down my netbook without unmounting it-- it wouldn't mount. To fix this I inserted this line:
into my /etc/fstab file.
/dev/sdb1 / ntfs-3g force 0 0
Now when I'm trying to mount my MicroSD card through a MicroSD to USB adapter, it says "You are not privileged to mount this volume." and when I try to mount it in terminal:
I've also been having to mount the external hard drive as root using 'sudo mount /dev/sdb1' if I want to mount it.
>> sudo mount /dev/sdb1
NTFS signature is missing.
Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1': Invalid argument
The device '/dev/sdb1' doesn't have a valid NTFS.
Maybe you selected the wrong device? Or the whole disk instead of a
partition (e.g. /dev/hda, not /dev/hda1)? Or the other way around?
What do I do to get drives to automount again?
