    mount: only root can mount /dev/sdb3 on /media/New


    Try mounting as root (sudo mount -t reiserfs /dev/sdb3 /media/New?
    "Please choose a different password, the one you have chosen is in use by UID 1432"

    Re: Problem mounting hdd partitions

    Good lord, what on earth created that fstab:
    # Entry for /dev/sdb2 :
    UUID=2E8C583F8C58042D /media/New Volume_ ntfs-3g 0 0
    # Entry for /dev/sdb3 :
    UUID=37CC31981D24B38B /media/New Volume ntfs-3g 0 0
    # Entry for /dev/sdb2 :
    UUID=2E8C583F8C58042D /media/New Volume_ ntfs-3g 0 0
    Entry for /dev/sdb3 :
    UUID=37CC31981D24B38B /media/New Volume ntfs-3g 0 0
    # Entry for /dev/sdb2 :
    UUID=2E8C583F8C58042D /media/New Volume_ ntfs-3g 0 0
    # Entry for /dev/sdb3 :
    UUID=37CC31981D24B38B /media/New Volume ntfs-3g 0 0
    The correct way do to this if you really really want all those spaces in your mount point is this way:
    Code:
    UUID=37CC31981D24B38B /media/New\040Volume ntfs-3g defaults 0 0
    UUID=2E8C583F8C58042D /media/New\040Volume_ ntfs-3g defaults 0 0
    Your original will try to mount to /media/New, it will try to mount them as filetype=Volume which doesn't exist, and it will have no idea what the option ntfs-3g means. Linux hates spaces.

    And either delete or comment out the duplicate mount instructions for those two partitions.
