FREECOM EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE

Postby daigu on Thu Sep 25, 2008 7:22 am

Hi peeps,

I have a 500gb Freecom ext hard drive that I would like to use with Elyssa.
When I plug it in and turn it on mint does not recoginse the drive. Is there some magical stuff I need to do?

Cheers

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If it's USB it should just mount as long as it has a mountable filesystem on it.
If it's firewire then you may need some drivers/modules for the kernel to support it.

Elyssa does have problems with some USB/Firewire devices and their UUID's ...
