http://www.linuxforums.org – I am a newbie. I followed what I read on the forums but I am stuck trying to mount a Seagate 100GB ext hardrive over usb. I am giving the info here: (ubuntu 9.04) ================================================== ======== # fdisk -l Disk /dev/sda: 320.0 GB, 320072933376 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 38913 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0x33957100 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 1 37488 301115392 7 HPFS/NTFS /dev/sda2 37488 38913 11451392 7 HPFS/NTFS Disk /dev/sdc: 100.0 GB, 100030242816 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 12161 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0xa60b9538 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdc1 * 1 12161 97683201 c W95 FAT32 (LBA) ====================== I suppose I have to mount /dev/sdc1 . So I tried: root-ubuntu# mkdir seagate root-ubuntu# mount /dev/sdc1 seagate error==>mount: you must specify the filesystem type At this point I did "man mount" and realized I had reached the limit of my expertise!. Could someone please kindly help me here. Thanks in advance. (HowTos)
