mount point

Asked by malias_g7@hotmail.com on 2009-02-01

hi!!!
I have one 160Gb hard disk separated in three partitions.I' have split the hall disk in half , one for the DATA(80GB) and the other for the operation system(80Gb). The 80Gb for the operation are splitted again for linux and windows.
I've change the mount point of the DATA partition.

Know when I try to open the DATA partition an error occurs that says "Cannot mount volume" and then another error that says

"Unable to mount DATA

DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply:
Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the
remote application did not send a reply, the message
bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout
expired, or the network connection was broken."

I want same help for this!!!Thanks...

This question was reopened

Filesystems of the Partitions???

The DATA partition is ntfs ,the partition with ubuntu is ex3 and the partition with windows is ntfs!!

Open a Terminal from the menu Applications → Accessories → Terminal and type:
(if the system ask you a password give your user password, you will not see nothing when you type it, then press enter)

sudo fdisk -l

-l is lower of -L

copy and paste result here.

Thank you

Hi :)

Can Ubuntu see the Xp Os partition but just not the Data partition?
Have you got Samba-client?

Try looking in Synaptic ...
On the top taskbar click on System - Administration - Synaptic is near the end
Use either search tool to look for samba stuff but you wont need all of it. Just tick the one called "Samba" and let that draw in all it's dependencies and then click on "Apply". It might be that you need to reinstall (the 2nd last option on the right-click menu when the mouse arrow is over "Samba"). The full Samba includes stuff for networking too but it sounds like you have plenty of space and it's kinda worth having Samba. Note if you're using Ubuntu avoid KDE packages or else you really will have a lot of stuff added on. If you're in Kubuntu avoid gnome-ish stuff (same reason)

Hopefully that should sort the mystifying errors out
Good luck and regards from

Hi...
Tom thanks for the help but it did not work....I've installed Samba and the errors are still there...

Marcobra there are the results of sudo fdisk -l :

Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders

Partition table entries are not in disk order

Which tools have you used to split your partitions

--- I have one 160Gb hard disk separated in three partitions.
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes

---- I' have split the hall disk in half , one for the DATA(80GB)
/dev/sda3 10259 19457 73890967+ 7 HPFS/NTFS

--- and the other for the operative system(80Gb).
/dev/sda2 * 1020 7393 51199155 7 HPFS/NTFS

i'm quiet confused with this....
---- The 80Gb for the operation are splitted again for linux and windows.

----I've change the mount point of the DATA partition.

Please send us the mount point you have set

Thank you

The first split of my disk was done by the producer!!!When I bought the pc I had two (ntfs) partitions. One for the data and the other for windows. But I wanted Ubuntu so I split the 80GB "operation disk" ,to install linux, into (50GB-windows-ntfs and 30GB-Ubuntu-ex3 ) . I've done that partition with partition magic.

I have change the mount point of the "DATA disk" into "/home/username/Desktop" .I did a hug mistake....

Marcobra thanks for trying help!!!!

Well I made it!!!!!!!!!!
I did 3 steps:

1) sudo mkdir /media/yourdrivehere

2) sudo fdisk -l
When you do that a list like this will appear:

Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x4646339a

/dev/sda5 7394 10189 22458838+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda6 10190 10258 554211 82 Linux swap / Solaris

3)sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /media/yourdrivehere
Instead of "/dev/sdb1" you have to put the name of the Device Book which has Unknown System...In my case I wrote "/dev/sda1"..

Marcobra thanks a lot for trying...

Welcome to Linux and especially Ubuntu :)))

oooooo I did' t really solve the problem...I thought I did but......

The error is still there.... :)))))) Thanks for inviting me!!!!!!!

Hi again!!!! I finally solve my problem.... I did what I said 4 comments above but instead of "/dev/sdb1" (Which is in example) and "/dev/sda1" (which I said in that comment) I finally put "/dev/sda3".... That WORKED!!!!!!
