    Cant mount my drive

    When i try to mount my drive which is called Slave it give's me this. "cannot mount volume. Your are not privileged to mount the volume 'Slave'"

    I've tried just about everything that other forums say do and cant get it to work. What happend was windows gave me the blue screen of death, and i couldn't start windows so thank god i had Ubuntu. But now i cant get to my other drive. I really need the stuff i have on my slave it has all of my bands songs on it.

    This could help when i type in fdisk -l i get

    mount: can't find /slave in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
    atlus@atlus-desktop:~$ sudo fdisk -l
    [sudo] password for atlus:

    Hi Atlus,
    had the same probleme with external hdd.
    I edited my fstab using sudo, to point it in the right direction.
    Concerning the dual booting, i edited grub.

    Hope it help..
