Default Mount problem.

Never done this before (all my server drives are on a RAID card), but I now need to mount a new HDD (it's a NTFS formated disk) of a small file server.

Code:
fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hda: 81.9 GB, 81964302336 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9964 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1   *           1        9777    78533721   83  Linux
/dev/hda2            9778        9964     1502077+   5  Extended
/dev/hda5            9778        9964     1502046   82  Linux swap / Solaris

Disk /dev/hdb: 120.0 GB, 120000061440 bytes
44 heads, 5 sectors/track, 1065341 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 220 * 512 = 112640 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hdb1               1     1065341   117187468    7  HPFS/NTFS
files:/media#
I would like to mount /dev/hdb, so I use: /dev/hdb /media/store
When doing so I get the following error: mount: you must specify the filesystem type

mount -h does not really give me much help on the "filesystem type" problem.

Anyone here who knows more about this?

Thank you

Yes that did the trick, and I thank you for that :-)

Now I need to get it to be read/writable, but I guess the -w will take care of that

Hi,

please install the ntfs-3g package. Afterwards unmount the drive and mount it as follows:

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/hdb1 /media/store

Best regards,

Olli

The kernel module is usually not compiled for write support just read so you should go with ntfs-3g as o.meyer stated.
