http://ubuntuforums.org – I am now unable to mount my external USB hard drive in Ubuntu 8.10. When I try I get a "$MFTMirr does not match (record 0)." error. I can access the drive from windows XP. I also did the double windows boot, running chkdsk /f which did not solve the problem. I did search on the error and do not understand the suggested fixes. Running sudo blkid results in: /dev/sda1: UUID="9644A86344A847B7" TYPE="ntfs" /dev/sda5: UUID="5c434659-3c42-45ba-853a-4b8a7ad802fe" TYPE="ext3" /dev/sda6: TYPE="swap" UUID="b9e3da8b-a682-4314-82ee-4f658eda8ae0" /dev/sda7: UUID="ce379d48-34bf-45ef-a603-61108a5ae20c" TYPE="ext3" /dev/sdb1: UUID="FA74C0B974C07A41" LABEL="FreeAgent Drive" TYPE="ntfs" /dev/sdb2: LABEL="Ubuntu 9.04 i386" TYPE="iso9660" /dev/loop1: UUID="d3440751-b8c1-4af9-8d9a-0e447ac8ac55" TYPE="ext3" and my /etc/fstab is: # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 # /dev/sda5 UUID=5c434659-3c42-45ba-853a-4b8a7ad802fe / ext3 relatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1 # /dev/sda7 UUID=ce379d48-34bf-45ef-a603-61108a5ae20c /home ext3 relatime 0 2 # /dev/sda6 UUID=b9e3da8b-a682-4314-82ee-4f658eda8ae0 none swap sw 0 0 Don't have a clue where to go from here. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks. --Steve (Hardware)
