http://ubuntuforums.org – The way my computer is set up is I have my original 200 gig hard drive, from when I built my computer, with just about nothing but the operating system on it. Then I have a secondary 1.5 terabyte hard drive that I use for storing media and other files. It mounted fine a few months ago with 9.04, but it randomly decided to stop grating me access to the disk. Being that 9.10 was just around the corner I decided to upgrade a little early and see if that would solve my problem. The new situation is that the drive is recognized in the "Places" menu automatically after the fresh install, but it still wont grant me access. When I try it gives me the error: Quote: Unable to mount 1500 GB Filesystem Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so and in Palimpsest it says: Quote: Count of remapped sectors. When the hard drive finds a read/write/verification error, it marks the sector as "reallocated" and transfers data to a special reserved area (spare area) I searched a little online and a lot of the info was Window$ based. Thanks for any help. (Hardware)
