I need some help with a USB connected hard drive. It's the old drive from my 6.3-RELEASE desktop (now de-commissioned), placed into a IDE-USB enclosure.
It has 4 slices - a FAT32 one, a UFS2 1, a Linux (ext3 I think - was Ubuntu) and a Linux swap. 7.1 can see all the partitions: ******* Working on device /dev/da0 ******* parameters extracted from in-core disklabel are: cylinders=4863 heads=255 sectors/track=63 (16065 blks/cyl) Figures below won't work with BIOS for partitions not in cyl 1 parameters to be used for BIOS calculations are: cylinders=4863 heads=255 sectors/track=63 (16065 blks/cyl) Media sector size is 512 Warning: BIOS sector numbering starts with sector 1 Information from DOS bootblock is: The data for partition 1 is: sysid 12 (0x0c),(DOS or Windows 95 with 32 bit FAT (LBA)) start 63, size 39070017 (19077 Meg), flag 80 (active) beg: cyl 256/ head 0/ sector 0; end: cyl 1023/ head 15/ sector 63 The data for partition 2 is: sysid 165 (0xa5),(FreeBSD/NetBSD/386BSD) start 39070080, size 20964825 (10236 Meg), flag 0 beg: cyl 1023/ head 255/ sector 63; end: cyl 1023/ head 6/ sector 63 The data for partition 3 is: sysid 131 (0x83),(Linux native) start 60034905, size 17575110 (8581 Meg), flag 0 beg: cyl 1023/ head 254/ sector 63; end: cyl 1023/ head 254/ sector 63 The data for partition 4 is: sysid 130 (0x82),(Linux swap or Solaris x86) start 77610015, size 546210 (266 Meg), flag 0 beg: cyl 1023/ head 254/ sector 63; end: cyl 1023/ head 254/ sector 63 and it appears in dmesg: Dec 19 21:29:04 laptop kernel: umass0: <Super Top USB 2.0 IDE DEVICE, class 0/0, rev 2.00/2.01, addr 2> on uhub4 Dec 19 21:29:04 laptop root: Unknown USB device: vendor 0x14cd product 0x6600 bus uhub4 Dec 19 21:29:04 laptop kernel: da0 at umass-sim0 bus 0 target 0 lun 0 Dec 19 21:29:04 laptop kernel: da0: <WDC WD40 0BB-75DEA0 \0000\0000> Fixed Direct Access SCSI-0 device Dec 19 21:29:04 laptop kernel: da0: 40.000MB/s transfers Dec 19 21:29:04 laptop kernel: da0: 38146MB (78125000 512 byte sectors: 255H 63S/T 4863C) I can successfully mount the FAT32 slices and the UFS2 partitions, but once mounted I can't see any files. My son's Win XP desktop can see the FAT32 slice and all the files on it - but not the UFS2 or Linux slices. The drive inside the enclosure is set to cable-select. The manual recommends master, but if I set it to that neither FreeBSD nor Win XP see anything (ie. nothing in dmesg). Any suggestions as to what I can do to get FreeBSD to 'see' my files? TIA.
