Не монтируются харды. Unable to mount location. Linux mint 14

Приветствую. Установил Linux Mint 14 на отдельный хард, казалось бы всё ок, но не могу примонтировать два остальных одинаковых терабайтника, один с виндой, другой файлопомойка. За пару часов гугл ничего путного не дал. http://help.ubuntu.ru/wiki/монтирование разделов По этой ссылке ничего не получается. вот вывод fdisk -l http://pastebin.com/P85UYpR9 И в винду теперь тоже не могу загрузиться, загрузчик поломался, а в граб не знаю как добавить, если монтироваться не хотят разделы. =\ В общем помогите пожалуйста, если кто шарит.

�Unable to mount location. Can’t mount file�

Hi, I just installed Linux Mint 19.2 to a new desktop. I have never used Linux, so I�m a bit confused. Boots up fine. Everything seems to work. But When I open �Computer� from my desk top, it shows my drives. When I try to open a drive to view it�s contents, a pop up say�s �Unable to mount location. Can’t mount file�. I’ve got two drives and can’t view either of them. Not sure what to do. Perhaps someone can help.

what format are they? got ntfs-3g installed? try opening up a file manager then seeing if you can get to them from that?

sudo fdisk -l

When this happened to me, I just clicked on the error message «OK» and then I right-clicked in the device list and then «Mount»

Try that. It’s happened to me in multiple distros. I wonder what causes it myself.

I already tried right click and mount. It doesn’t work. I don’t know how to tell how the disks are formatted. I don’t know if I have ntfs-3g installed. I never used linux so answering these questions is tough. I’ll try to find these answers. Thanks for taking the time to respond.

«It’s doesn’t work» doesn’t tell us anything apart from the obvious. You need to post some useful information about your problem as asked in post 2, if you want anything more than just guesses. Look in your package manager to see if the ntfs-3g package is installed.

That said, have you looked in your system logs, like the kernel log for one? They will likely offer you some clues as to what might be going on, try that.

Start with posting the following command in full, and within CODE tags (make sure the drives in question are connected to your system when you run the following command);

lsblk -f

That should give us something to go on.

Ok. ntfs-3g package is installed. My file manager is Nemo 4.2.3. I found the drives are mounted. When viewing the drives in the file manager, there is a copy of each drive that is labeled consistent with the consumer packaging ie. «(Samsung SSD 860 EVO 1TB (RVT02B6Q)». Next to that I see a drive labeled «1A78BFC778BF9FCS» now I see it IS the Samsung SSD 860 EVO 1TB. And the 250 GB drive shows as «File System». I think I am good. I’ve only had linux for two days. I’ve got a lot to learn. Sorry to bother and thank you.

not a problem, I am a little jealous that you got a 1TB ssd, I only got a 500GB Samsung SSD (I forgot the number) EVO. They didn’t even have them when I got mine.

Yeah I got lucky. My brother bought the computer for his CAD/CAM system and didn’t even get a chance to build it before he decided on something else. When he said he wanted to sell it, I couldn’t resist. LOL

Look at the file /etc/fstab. It’s a plain text file so you can look at it in any editor. Each line represents a partition or other device such as a CD. The first column shows a designation for the raw partition. In Mint, that will probably be the UUID (a randomly generated string that uniquely identifies the filesystem on the partition). Other distros might use the partition’s device name (for example /dev/sda2). The second column shows where the partition should be mounted. The third is the filesystem type and the fourth column contains mount options. There are a couple more columns but they aren’t important.

So a partition can be described in two ways. First there is the partition itself, which may or may not be mounted currently. If it isn’t mounted, you can’t view the contents. Then there is the content of the partition, which appears when it is mounted. It takes the form of a tree of directories and files descending from the mount point.

Devices in fstab get mounted automatically at boot unless they carry the noauto option. This is used for exchangeable devices like memory sticks and CDs, which might not be present at boot time. But they can be mounted by hand at any time if they carry the user option.

[SOLVED] «Unable to mount location» error message

Post by vladi99 » Tue Feb 09, 2021 12:33 am

I upgraded my Linux Mint installation from 19.1 to 20.1 and I lost connection to WDTVLiveHub which is connected to the home network.

I can still see the icon of WDTVLiveHub (looks like a folder) under Network tab, but when I try to open it, I see «Unable to mount location» error message; it also says «Failed to retrieve share list from server: Software caused connection abort». The other folder located next to it, «Windows Network», can be opened but contains nothing. I tried to look into network setting, but did not find anything useful. Quick search for the solution of my problem on this forum was not very successful either.

Interestingly, with the previous version of Mint (19.1) I could open the folder called WDTVLiveHub and do all necessary operations with the files located in the WDTVLiveHub internal hard drive. When I boot from Mint 19.1 boot media, I still have access to WDTVLiveHub hard drive as before.

Could you please suggest a solution to this issue ?

There are no such things as «stupid» questions. However if you think your question is a bit stupid, then this is the right place for you to post it. Stick to easy to-the-point questions that you feel people can answer fast. For long and complicated questions use the other forums in the support section.
