  1. Ok I did the command sudo mount /dev/sdc1 /media/500g -t ntfs It mounted the drive, but I cannot acess it. It says I do not have permission. How do I set that? Also I added this to fstab too /dev/sbc1 /media/500g ntfs defaults,unmask=222,noauto,users 0 0 UPDATE Im not sure exactly what fstab does, but doesnt it allow for things to mount on boot? I just restarted and neither of the drives were mounted. Did I put the wrong stuff into fstab?
  2. Ok That mounted my first external. Im going to go check out how to mount the NTFS now. Also I added this to the fstab. Is it alright?? /dev/sdb1 /media/Mybook vfat defaults,unmask=222,noauto,users 0 0
  3. Alright Ive had some time to play around with my system again and this is where I am at Neither of my drives mount when I connect them. The 500 gig IS a NTFS filesystem. I thought I had made it Fat32 earlier but I guess I didnt. My 250 gig external is at /dev/sdb When I ran the command sudo mount /dev/sdb /media/Mybook I got the error saying I needed to specify filetype. How would I do this? I tried -t fat32 but that didnt work. It said fat32 was not a recognized filesystem.
  4. Im going to go get that 160 gig one in a few months. I was really looking forward to the touch, but 16 gigs wont work for me...its sad
  5. Im sorry, Im not getting the time I need to work on this problem. Thanks for all your help and hopefully this weekend Ill be able to try out your ideas. Ill let you know what happens
  6. lol well I want the one where i can read and write and change things from my windows computers. I think I sorta understand what it means though.
  7. just wondering, but what does the 222 do? Are there other numbers you could place there and what would they do?
  8. It seems ive done something stupid as well. I tried changing the mount point on my working 250 G drive to /media/samba so I could share it. I did it through right clicking it and going to properties. When I unplugged and then plugged in the drive I got the box asking me what to do with the drive. I said open it, but nothing happened. Also the drive is not present in /media or /media/samba.

  10. I am not familiar with vista, but i am going to assume it works somewhat like xp. If I am wrong then somebody please correct me. Most modern laptops (in fact i think you would have to look very hard to find one that doesn't)have the ability to hook up to an external monitor or projector. All you have to do is plug in your second monitor to the port in the back and then press the Fn key (usually next to the ctrl key) and the F8 key. The second key should be labled with crt/lcd. This toggles the display between your laptop monitor, the external monitor, and both at the same time. Usually withou

  13. I have two my book external harddrives attached to my computer running ubuntu. One is 250 gigs and one is 500g. Ubuntu will only show the 250 gig drive though. The other one doesnt show up in /media. How do I get the other drive to show up?

    Congrats on your new title, Matt
  15. Hey guys You guys know of a program I can use to sync a large folder with 2 other people not on my network? I know it will be bandwidth intensive, but I need it.
  16. You might want to try getting a hijack this log and posting it. Ive personally never heard of this happening from adware, but I guess anything is possible with that stuff.
  17. Well I turned off all programs which may have been using it Im planning on reformatting soon enough so I may just leave it alone. Probably not worth the trouble of finding if Im gonna reformat
  18. My lappy has been acting funny. Random internet usage (maxes my downstream) and harddrive usage. Scans turned up nothing, but Id like a second opinion.
