I have installed a new hard drive to my Ubuntu 9.10 system. Before I upgrade and mess everything up (again) I would like to get a solution to my problem. Please help this has been plaguing me for quite some time.
I tried mounting the new hard drive to a folder that I created /media/data. When I start my machine I see the drive listed under Places and I can click on it and I get a message asking me for my password. After I type in the password I can get to all of the folders no problem. But I can never just get the drive to mount. It is listed as /dev/sdb. I edited the fstab file with the following line.
/dev/sdb1 /media/data ext3 defaults 0 2
This does not seem to work. I can tell you that when I go to System -> Administration -> Disk Utility the program tells me the drive is not partitioned. Could this be my problem?
Lastly, so you know all the details, when I do click on the drive and enter my password the drive shows up under /media. But the folder/drive name is the UUID number of the drive.
Sorry for the length of this post I just wanted to give all the info I could. But, I am really stuck and frustrated here. Any help would be good at this point!
