A week ago my My Book Live is stuck on blue light and the LED at the ethernet port does not light up. Nothing shows up on the router ip list either. Preceeding that, for around 2 weeks, the drive randomly stops working, and I had to power off/on for it to be accessible.
Tried different cables and direct connection to PC and MAC - all failed.
Anyway, I pryed open the enclosure to put it on a usb enclosure. And since Windows does not read the filesystem (though I could see 4 partitions) and is prompting me to format the drive, I just downloaded and booted into Ubuntu.
The hard disk shows up in Linux but I am getting this message:
Error mounting: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdi4,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
Right now I am running TestDisk to analyse the drive and it is taking a long time to get through 2TB.
Not experienced in Linux at all and using Google to source for solutions. Anyone care to share how I can access my files on the drive?
BTW what partition table type should the drive be?
I got the following choices:
[Intel ] Intel/PC partition
>[EFI GPT] EFI GPT partition map (Mac i386, some x86_64...)
[Humax ] Humax partition table
[Mac ] Apple partition map
[None ] Non partitioned media
[Sun ] Sun Solaris partition
[XBox ] XBox partition
