I've been reading wikis and googling a lot, but for some reason I can't get to mount my external hard drive. I'm using Mepis 8.5 and I have a Cirago USB 2.0 High Speed hard drive.
When I conect the drive to my laptop, the light on the drive goes on, which makes me suppose that, at least, there is a working connection.
In dolphin there is no drive listed in the bar at the left of the screen, so I went to terminal to see what is mounted. Here's the output:
Code: Select all
[root@Inspiron1525 Hernan]# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 9465 76027612 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 9466 9729 2120580 82 Linux swap / Solaris
My main hard drive is 80 Gb, so I guess sda is my hard drive and sda1 and sda2 are its partitions... This would mean that my computer is not recognizing the external hard drive at all.
Earlier, I thought maybe sda1 was the external harddrive, so I mounted it to /mnt/cirago. When I went there using dolphin as root I realized I had mounted my own hardrive, since my home directory and everything was there...
So... I'm stuck here. Any help is much appreciated. :)
