Hello everybody!I have this problem: when i try to copy files to an usb drive formatted fat 32 thunar fails, this problem does not appear when I use cp in the terminal.I use crunchbang 10 backports(sorry for my english but I'm italian and as latin I cannot speak foreign languages)
I've managed to get automout to work and I thought I was sorted. Now I tried to copy a file into my USB stick and I get a splicing error. I formatted the drive using gparted FAT32. When I start gparted it shows an error mounting sdb which is the hard drive I'm trying to copy from. Otherwise I can read and write fine from that drive.
I am using Live USB to install Fedora 18 to my system but the installer shows complete hard drive as empty. I tried fdisk -l it shows all partitions but the installer shows complete drive as empty. Please help
Had my Kyros 7127 about 3 months now. When I plug it in to my laptop to d/l movies/music it shows an F drive and and E drive. Suddenly now, it shows the F drive, but says the E drive must be formatted to read. WTF? Is that a tablet problem or a laptop problem, and how is it solved?
I'm new to ubuntu so please forgive any stupid mistakes.
I'm trying to install ubuntu 11.10 to a 500 GB external usb hard drive, to dual boot with windows 7 (windows has already 4 primary partitions so that's the reason for the external drive).
Sigh. Stater r20111125 32-bit. So I've installed thunar-thumbnailers. And ffmpegthumbnailer. Thunar is not showing thumbnails for video files (flv, mp4, mov, 3g). I restarted the machine. Still no thumbnails. This applies to files on an external USB HDD. I copied one of the files to /tmp to check, but no thumbnail is shown even for a video file in /tmp.
Thanks for your help and looking into this for me. The airport extreme is suppose to share the usb drive both as afp and samba. I can connect to it sometimes in Thunar, but never at the CLI or with /etc/fstab.So, I thought maybe the problem relates to the Mac OS Extended (HFS+ I believe) formatting of the drive.
Hi, I just bought a 500 gß HDD (Seagate 7200 spin, SATA), with the goal of loading my media on it, to be read both by Win 7 and Kubuntu. The drive would not format in Win 7, so I used Gparted in Kubuntu Live to try and format the drive. Originially formatted to NTFS, but upon rebooting windows, it said the drive was write protected.
