Issues Reading External Drive on Boot

Postby RexM on Sun Aug 16, 2009 2:38 am

When I boot my machine, everything seems to go fine, but then I start getting boot errors, which I'll paste below. This all started after one day when I hit shut down and left for work, apparently the desktop did not completely shut down. I came home from work and it was still on, I hit the button in the front and just did a hard shut down.

One of the external drives is no longer mounted automatically when I turn my system on and the icon isn't showing up on the desktop.

I don't know how much of this log is useful, but I'll try to get what I think might be useful.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. It currently takes my machine about 3 minutes to boot up, now, because of all of these extra errors.

Boot without the external drive attached. When you have a ready desktop, insert the drive into the USB port. After a few seconds open a terminal and type:

fdisk -l
df -h

and show us the results (so we can determine if there is still a valid partition table on the drive).

I unplugged it and plugged it back in and it put an icon on my desktop. Everything seems to be there, as well.

I'm going to try and restart quickly to see if everything is fixed, will post back in a minute.

EDIT: Yes, I just restarted and it boots up normal. Who would have thought I just needed to unplug it and plug it back in... :oops: Thanks for the help :)
