I’ve been unable to mount and access data on either the A or B drives in my MyBook World EditionII. After numerous calls to tech support, it was recommended that I install Linux (via Ubuntu), and connect either of my drives to my PC via a drive adapter cable. I was successful installing Linux, and both drives are recognized. As one of the steps in gaining access to the data partition of either drive, I was told to enter the follow in a command window:
sudo mount -t ext3 -o ro /dev/sdd4 /mnt (sdd4 was the name given the data partition by the system)
However, I get an error message saying the following:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdd4, missing codepage or helper program, or other error. In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
I’m not a programmer or Linux user, so this is a foreign language to me. Would anyone have some helpful advice based on what I’ve provided?
