I needed the 3TB hard disk of my My Book Essential Edition USB 3.0 for my NAS.
Now I want to put a 2TB WD caviar green in the body of my 3 TB My Book.
But when I start my linux, it its not possible to read or write the disk in this MyBook body.
The 2TB hard disk is formatted with EXT3 and a 4KB sector size.
When I try to mount it in my linux it looks like this:
$ sudo mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb /media/ssh mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb, missing codepage or helper program, or other error
When I try to make a hard disk test with gparted I get this message:
Error benchmarking: helper exited with exit code 1: Error reading 104857600 bytes at 104857600 from /dev/sdb when guesstimating buffer size: Input/output error
Can anybody help me, how I have to prepare the 2TB disk, to use it in the MyBook USB3.0 body.
Thanks a lot!
