http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi Guys, bit of a n00b here just need a little help trying to identify if I am doing something incorrectly when mounting a USB external drive formatted in XFS. I am typing: sudo mount -t xfs /dev/sdb1 /media/external And I get the following error: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on dev/sdb1, missing code page or helper program or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog I have this external HDD which is written in XFS and connected to a External Network hard drive which allows me to view and use in windows. Last night it just stopped showing the content. (Hardware)
