SimpleTech external hard drive issue

Postby atm259 » Sat Jan 10, 2009 1:15 pm

Hey guys, new to the Linux Mint community.
I currently have all of my music on my SimpleTech SimpleDrive external hard drive
This is the message that displays after I double-click the icon in "Computer."

"Cannot mount hard drive"
"DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply.
Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply,
the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired,
or the network connection was broken."

I cannot delete the information in this hard drive.

Thanks in advance!

All you have to do is plug it in to a Windows machine, "safely disconnect" it. Turn it off and the on. Plug it in to your Mint and it should work.
