the system sees the disk: Jun 24 15:37:30 stewie kernel: umass0: Maxtor OneTouch, rev 2.00/2.00, addr 2 Jun 24 15:37:30 stewie kernel: umass0: Get Max Lun not supported (STALLED) Jun 24 15:37:31 stewie kernel: GEOM: create disk da0 dp=0xc2d85050 Jun 24 15:37:31 stewie kernel: da0 at umass-sim0 bus 0 target 0 lun 0 Jun 24 15:37:31 stewie kernel: da0: <Maxtor OneTouch 0201> Fixed Direct Access SCSI-0 device Jun 24 15:37:31 stewie kernel: da0: 1.000MB/s transfers Jun 24 15:37:31 stewie kernel: da0: 286103MB (585938944 512 byte sectors: 255H 63S/T 36473C) this is a Maxtor 300G USB drive. A backup was written to it via a linux 2.4 server and now I would like to mount it on my FBSD laptop to read it and work with the files. When trying to mount it using mount_msdos I get the following: [ root @ stewie : ~] : mount_msdosfs -o rw /dev/da0s1 /mnt/usb1/ mount_msdosfs: /dev/da0s1: Invalid argument and in /var/log/messages I get the following: Jun 24 15:43:52 stewie kernel: mountmsdosfs(): disk too big, sorry when trying to use ntfs to mount it I get : [ root @ stewie : ~] : mount_ntfs /dev/da0s1 /mnt/usb1/ mount_ntfs: /dev/da0s1: Invalid argument and nothing in any log file. One of the taks I need to accomplish here is to copy all of the data on this 300G USB drive onto an identical 300G USB drive. I was going to mount both and just copy from one to the other. After reading about the limited writing capabilities in the man page of mount_ntfs I'm wondering if I would be better off doing this on a linux box. The linux box that created the origional backup onto the USB drive had no problem creating the Fat32 filesystem and writing to it. Any ideas? _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
