    xfs mounting problems

    info from gparted
    result from trying to mount.

    Sceenshot from Disk utility. The disk is from an ALDI NAS. I thought it would be quicker to take it from its enclosure and plug it directly into the PC to transfer a gb of photos,music,movies on to it. I was wrong, months later I still can't access /dev/sdb2. I set up /media/nas following instructions from other posts and still no joy.

    My apologies for incorrectly loading pictures.
    Now on start up I get a message "an error occured while mounting /media/nas" . I selected s to skip .
    Disk utility only shows 1 volume on the 1.5TB disk. A 1 mb ext2 partition and the warning 'the partition is misaligned by 512 bytes.
    Gparted shows 502MB ext2, 1.36TB xfs (which is the partition I wish to write to) and 2.49MB unallocated.
    Terminal, after entering mount /dev/sdb2 (the 1.5TB volume identified in Gparted) yields 'mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb2, missing codepage or helper program, or other error. In somecases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg 1 tail or so'. (its not a 1 but I don't appear to have a piping symbol on my keyboard. a decade or more back in DOS it was above the 1 I think).
    I would like to be able to write to /dev/sdb2 without upsetting the other partition which I guess contains the NAS software.
