    Raid 5 set up- not being recognized on Ubuntu

    Hello, I am trying to transfer files from a Raid 5 set up that was set up to be used on an IMAC to another hard drive.

    The problem right now is that I can not get it to mount.

    The logo shows up on the side, but I get this message when I click on it:
    "Error mounting: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc2,
    missing codepage or helper program, or other error
    In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
    dmesg | tail or so"

    What do I do?
    I would like to get the external hard drive mounted without having to reformat or lose any information on it.
    I am brand new to ubuntu.

    Thank you!

    Re: Raid 5 set up- not being recognized on Ubuntu

    I looked at your thread yesterday but I don't understand what you're doing

    What exactly are you trying to mount? afaik you can't generally just mount the underlying block device of a raid array, especially not just one of the array members (with the possible exception of RAID1)

    Is the original array Linux or some kind of fake raid / hw raid?
