View Full Version : [ubuntu] error when mounting an IDE HD

hey guys,

I messed up with the HD, i right clicked on the HD icon and at the las tab (Volume) clicked the [settings] below and wrote everything i saw above. Exactly the same!! Stupidiot!!

when trying to mount the IDE Hard Drive, it gives me this ERROR and won't mount it.
IT says

impossible to mount the device <<Almacen>>


mount_point cannot contain the following characters: newline, G_DIR_SEPARATOR (usually /)

Do you have any weird characters or spaces in the the volume label? eg:

<<My External Drive>>

Linux doesn't deal well with illegal characters or spaces.

No, the name is <<Almacen>>

i just messed up with the properties of the HD, i changed some lines. I'll tell you how

i right clicked on the HD icon, then [properties], then [Volume] and clicked on the [Settings] button below. After that I wrote on every space what i saw above and after that, BUM!! the ERROR message.

does it have a fix?? it's all about mount_point containing weir characters. I think!! don't trust me on that...

Any idea??
