I have sda and sdb on mine. Sda is where linux is, and sdb is where my files are.
When i type :" sudo mount /dev/sda '/media/My Book'" it says "mount: /dev/sda already mounted or /media/My Book busy
/dev/sdb refers to the 2nd hard drive, which /dev/sdb1 refers to the 1st partition on that drive. For instance, I have some 10-odd partitions on one of my drives (for various operating systems), which I differentiate between with /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, etc.
Posting the output of
as requested will help us explain this a bit better.Code:sudo fdisk -l
Okay, it seemed to be mounted now, but the "superuser"-error still appears when I try to open the my book..
I will have to rewrite everything from terminal since I cannot use the Wi Fi on the internet with my eee, so I am on another computer now. I cannot copy it with a USB stick either, since the same error occurs...
Device boot: boot: Start: End:
/dev/sda1 * 1 486 Linux
/dev/sda2 487 490 Linux Swap
Device boot: start end
/dev/sdb1 1 981 Linux
a different thread...
You should be able to copy files if you open nautilus as root:
Ok summing this all up:thenCode:sudo chown yourusername '/media/My Book'then you should be able to open and transfer files from that hard drive. Or you can do the above stated by Xiong.Code:sudo mount /dev/sdb1 '/media/My Book'
