    It's the exact same thing with me. I've still got no idea for a solution, either.

    Marcs and Adrian; What is the output from:

    sudo mount -a

    And what does your /etc/fstab say about the drives?

    I've got a similar, if not the same problem. One internal hd (with ext3 and ntfs partitions), one ntfs external connected by eSATA. 7.10 worked beautifully, in 8.04 the external one doesn't appear in /dev, as far as I can tell, and in /media/sda1 (where it used to mount), there is nothing.
    sudo mount -a:
    ntfs-3g: Failed to access volume '/dev/disk/by-uuid/305821F55821BA8C': No such file or directory
    Please type '/sbin/mount.ntfs-3g --help' for more information.
    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.

    for me, I have noticed that if I use the old version of the kernel from grub (sorry I don't remember the number...I assume it's from feisty), then this problem doesn't happen. this is not a fix for me, however, because many things are slowed considerably, making it hard to use.

    Arrow Re: Can't mount NTFS after upgrade to 8.04

    At last I have found a solution.

    My C: NTFS disk had no volume name in Vista. Then it appeared in Ubuntu as something like: 132.2 GB disk.

    This strange label "132.2 GB disk", perhaps for the dot in the middle, couldn't be added to the fstab list.

    The utility ntfs-config couldn't recognize it either.

    So I've loaded Vista, I've renamed the C: volume label from "nothing" to DiskC and then I have been able to configure the fstab properly with ntfs-config in Ubuntu 8.04.

    (To install ntfs-config: sudo apt-get install ntfs-config
    To run it: sudo ntfs-config)

    Re: Can't mount NTFS after upgrade to 8.04

    When i se sudo mount -a nothing happens because the hd i want to mount is not listed in the fstab and it's not listed in the /dev/idisk directory. i got the ntfs-3g error when i updated from 7.10, but then i decided t go on a clean installation of 8.04, in that point i never get the error again because 8.04 didn't detect the hd and with the clean install the new fstab didn{t have reference to the hd anymore. Thanks to all i realy apreciate your help with this
