    (Crunchbang Linux) Can't mount hard drives


    Hello,I've been trying to mount my 2 hard drives for a while now but i can't.

    This is the output of my fdisk -l

    Code:
    Disk /dev/sda: 32.0 GB, 32017047552 bytes

    and this is my fstab

    Code:
    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    # Use 'vol_id --uuid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
    # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
    # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
    #
    # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
    proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
    # / was on /dev/sda1 during installation
    UUID=5c9b561f-620e-4f47-a4c9-d85d2e9f1b1d /               ext3    errors=remount-ro 0       1
    # swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation
    UUID=02c68c89-5565-44ba-87b3-6e032a1c92c0 none            swap    sw              0       0
    /dev/scd0       /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
    /dev/scd1       /media/cdrom1   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
    /dev/fd0        /media/floppy0  auto    rw,user,noauto  0       0
    /dev/sdd1       /media/usb0     auto    rw,user,noauto  0       0
    Also when i plug in a usb stick i can't access it until i use Thunar file manager as root because it gives me "Permission denied.User has no read/write access."
    I tried as root:

    Code:
    cd /media;mkdir hd2
    and then

    Code:
    mount /dev/sdb /media/hd2
    but it gives me this:

    Code:
    mount: you must specify the filesystem type
    I hope someone can help.Thanks

    Try:
    Code:
    sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/hd2
    /dev/sdb is the Harddrive
    /dev/sdb1 the partition you wanna mount

    The message you get is that the filesystem couldn't be detected, so it's asking wich to use ...
    It couldn't be deteced because you try to mount the wrong device.
