To mount external hard disks

If its a linux disc

from a terminal

sudo fdisk -l 

to identify the disk, its not /dev/sda1 etc and it's not the 320GB disk that has the Disk identifier: 0xbfaa347f (tyically /dev/sdb but not always) then do

mount /dev/sdc1 etc

as appropriate. Do not use sudo, do not specify a mount point. These are specified in /etc/fstab if this doesn't work run sudo fstab-fix (the system has a habit of overwriting fstab entries)

for windows (ntfs disk)

sudo mount-ntfs

and all ntfs disk will be mounted. Run


to tell you where they are mounted
