I am using Elyssa and am running KDE on a bog standard Elyssa (Gnome Based) system.
For some strange reason my external USB H/D though recognised just cannot be mounted. The system is aware that it's there bur when I try to mount it I get a failure message which say's something like "too many tasks to do" and get nowhere.
It's a new one on me and has not happened using any other system including earlier versions of Mint.
The drive is formatted with NTFS and is currently working correctly under MS. I have run the appropriate software in order to read ntfs partitions and all my applicable partitions on my fixed drive's are reading, (And writing) fine.
If anyone has had a similar experience I'd appreciate any light in my current darkness.
