Problem with my USB
« on: March 22, 2009, 07:51:36 pm »

Hi, i've got a problem, whenever i insert an USB memory in my laptop, this message apears:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/mmcblk0p1,       
missing codepage or other error     
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try       
dmesg | tail  or s
o  .

This didn't happened some days ago, I don't know why this began to happen, somebody help me  :(  :S

I am not sure if this has anything to do with your problem but... Which program are you using to mount devices? VL-Hot or HAL?

I have had problems with usb drives before while using VL-HOT. I switched to HAL and everything was fine. If you want to switch to HAL, go into VASM, Hardware, Mounter. It will then give you an option of whether to use VL-Hot or HAL.

I assume usb format is ntfs.
open root terminal and type:

fdisk -l # this will list available partitions, usb should be /dev/sdb1
mkdir /media/tmpdrive
mount -t ntfs-3g -o allow_other /dev/sdb1 /media/tmpdrive
if that doesn't work try different format other than ntfs-3g if that also doesn't work then try forcing it with:
mount -t ntfs-3g (or whatever format) -o force,allow_other /dev/sdb1 /media/tmpdrive

if that worked then probably the problem was that the last time u removed the usb u didn't make a safe remove or windows shutdown suddenly or something like that
based on the error message that u get I think u will not need to use mount -o force, the problem is that u need to specify partition type with -t ntfs-3g (or whatever format)

btw, I get this message a lot, it's not a big deal
