I have a external HD 300g and am now trying to mount it to the latest Ubuntu gnome is my distro/ pretty well updated to this point 13 april09/ I am running ntfs file sys on the external/
Ubuntu message refers to that it can not find my HD?
I would rather find out or force the issue to run the hd as ntfs then reformat the HD to a fat/file sys? I tried 3 to 4 different commands of mounting the drive via the Google search.
So far no luck/ it runs of coarse on widows platform. I also have the original software that I tried to install withi Ubuntu/ but that also failed // I have a crossover implemented on the applications of Ubuntu// excel etc >>> please give me some help.
Thank you Leo
