Drive Not Being Seen In Ubuntu

Recommended Posts


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?


I added this to fstab too

/dev/sbc1	/media/500g   ntfs 	defaults,unmask=222,noauto,users 0 0


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?

Ahh now I can acess it after installing the ntfs-3g drivers. I can fully acess both drives now. I just need them to mount on start. I changed the fstab to use ntfs-3g instead of just ntfs

Thanks for all your help everybody!! :D

I have had typos like that really cause headaches trouble shooting a problem. I have a hunch it would work with file system "ntfs" now that you have the correct spelling of umask. If you want to be able to write to your vfat drive, change the umask to 000. Make sure you do not do that to your ntfs drive. Writing to it may cause file system corruption.
