View Full Version : [ubuntu] External USB not mounting in 7.10

May 3rd, 2008, 10:09 PM
I know this is probably a common question but a search yields only one thread newer than a week on this topic, and it deals with the new release. I've just started using Linux (Ubuntu, naturally) a couple weeks ago, so I'm still learning a lot.

My problem is virtually identical to this thread:
(If posting a link is not allowed, I apologize)

Basically, my drive works on a Windows system, but not in Ubuntu. When plugged in, it does not mount at all. The media folder has no change and says it's not a block device. USB Mount IS installed and NTFS config is set to allow external devices.

lsusb DOES add a line showing my external drive when I turn it on, however. The thread I linked unfortunately does not offer me a solution, so I'm coming here for help. Can anyone give me an idea?

Anyone have something I can try?

Can anyone offer help or should I look elsewhere?
