MOUNTING PROBLEM for 1,5 TB WD EXT HDD for mint 11

Postby evros on Fri Jun 24, 2011 4:27 am

Hi dudes, i tried some forums and tried some commands but its still same :

I have 2 HDD's , one is 300 GB , and no problem with that, but for 1,5 TB Western Digital, its there with an icon but says when you want to mount :

Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 12: Failed to read last sector (2930275119): Invalid argument
HINTS: Either the volume is a RAID/LDM but it wasn't setup yet,
or it was not setup correctly (e.g. by not using mdadm --build ...),
or a wrong device is tried to be mounted,
or the partition table is corrupt (partition is smaller than NTFS),
or the NTFS boot sector is corrupt (NTFS size is not valid).
Failed to mount '/dev/sdc1': Invalid argument
The device '/dev/sdc1' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS.
Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a
partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?


does any1 know how i can set it up ?

thanks

What is the output of
Code: Select all
sudo cat /etc/fstab
and
Code: Select all
mount
By the way do you know what file system it uses? If you do not. Type:
Code: Select all
df  -Th
and post it here too.

for
sudo cat /etc/fstab
result is :

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid -o value -s 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 nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
# / was on /dev/sda5 during installation
UUID=45b27d35-8550-4d36-a9e1-a311e2664d7d / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
# swap was on /dev/sda6 during installation
UUID=a462e257-cbc0-4f8c-956e-80295e0a21b0 none swap sw 0 0
#UUID=46C80E14C80E0343 /media/Data ntfs defaults,nls=utf8,uid=1000,umask=000 0 0



and for
mount
result is :


/dev/sda5 on / type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-ro,commit=0)

df -Th :
