Unable to mount USB

Unable to mount USB

Postby adripillo » 12 Mar 2012, 13:53

Hello, I'm using FreeBSD 9 and LDE 4.7. When I plugin my USB KDE shows up a message telling me that the USB is connected but it can't mount it. So as root I can do it but I want that "KDE" auto-mounts it while using my normal user. I guess I must add some kind of permission to it but I really don't know where.

If anyone can help me, I would be grateful.

Hi everyone,

Please help me. I have replaced my HDD external USB case. How to mount the existing ufs2 data partition on the HDD again? (I do not want to format the HDD. The enclosure with an other HDD and the HDD with an ther HDD case worked fine in the past.)

Thank you very much in advance.

[CMD=]"mount -t ufs /dev/<device> /<mountpoint (typically mnt)>"[/CMD]

In the future, please start a new thread before posting on a new issue. Also, here is my method for troubleshooting (please use in order for best results):
1. Use common sense.
2. Apply higher, more technical brain functionings.
3. Make pot of coffee (can be used during any step in this process).
4. Read the manual
5. Google relevant output.
6. Post on forums.
7. Bug/annoy moderators/developers until you get a hostile response (after all, they WORK here).
