Have 2 of these.


https://www.ebay.com.au/p/SATA-IDE-HDD-USB-Dual-Dock-Docking-Station-eSATA-OTB-Hub-Card-Reader-Ds-0026/20020152753?iid=282990245717&chn=ps


Works in Windows 7 & 10.


Whether connected via Esata or USB the entry in thunar for the drive has a spiney thing appear next to it but never loads the contents of a 3.63gb (in real terms) sata drive (WD Green WD40EZRX)


Have updated iscsi and the result is the same.


Cheers.

Just found out it's any spinning platten drive, thumb drives are the only external media to succesfully mount

Yes, all seems as it should be except the drives entry is in red txt, the drives not set as bootable nor can Drives Mount them, they are all NTFS, have spent some time in gparted with this result on all drives


Could not mount /dev/sdb1 on /mnt/wwn-0x50014ee000d6b090-part1

NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a
SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows
then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very
important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate
it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g.
/dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation
for more details.

A 265gb 2.5" drive was succesfully repaired by disks, the 4tb drive contues as unseable and disks fails to repair, perhaps the error the kernal detects yet Windows does not is something tolerable in Win yet intolerable in Linux.

The disk is NTFS formatted, you should format it for Linux (eg. ext4).
If there is some data that you want to save, then use Windows and copy that
data into some other disk (or USB stick for example).

Then connect the drive to Linux and
Open terminal, then:
Code: [Select]
sudo su
Code: [Select]
umount /dev/sdb1 >/dev/null 2>&1; sync; mkfs.ext4 -t ext4 /dev/sdb1
And there you have it...

Unplug it and plug it back, it should work now

... from previous post:

If you want both Windows and Linux be able to see/read/write the drive, then format it as FAT
instead of ext4:

Code: [Select]
sync; umount /dev/sdb1 >/dev/null 2>&1; mkfs.vfat -F 32 /dev/sdb1

The idea of formatting the drive ext4 even though there are windows drivers for Linux based formats is not what I need, the drive is close to full, I have another identical drive that is almost full, difficult as if I want to retain my data, the idea of Linux was to be an alternative to Windows? am I right? the idea of not being able to use hardware on both platforms makes it less so, at least for me!

Forget the link, this post will be a link too and people will refer to it.
It is funny how people follow instructions more likely when it's linked to some other page in the web
even though the answer is on this very page :)

It may be formatted as FAT, which is suggested if you want to use the drive in both Win and Lin.

Well, I did not know that the drive is full. Then it is not necessarily a good idea to copy it's contents
into a temporary location - but it may instead be necessary to do so

"The idea of not being able to use hardware on both platforms makes it less so"?

Excuse me, but it is you, who want to use both platforms, am I right?
Then you must make the disk compatible for both platforms. USB connection does not
magically make the proprietary disk un-proprietary.
