    You can leave it as fat.
    Post the output of:
    Code:
    sudo mount -a

    Re: Shared Hard drive

    it gives me this :

    Code:
    huy@Huy-08:~$ sudo mount -a
    [sudo] password for huy: 
    mount: special device /dev/disk/by-uuid/D094-6017 does not exist
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda5,
           missing codepage or helper program, or other error
           In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
           dmesg | tail  or so

    Use fdisk -l instead and remove the UUID numbers and try with the /dev/### also.

    Just a thought.....

    Check the uuid of the partition:
    Code:
    sudo blkid /dev/sda5
    and correct it if it's wrong.

    Re: Shared Hard drive

    Use fdisk -l to see the filesystem type. Just try and remove the UUID and replace with /dev/sda5 to see if you get the same error.

    Special devices are listed in the /dev folder such as the sda, sdb ect...

    There is a procedure to create these devices if they don't exsist. First you need a process of elimination.
