mount usb hd vfat logical partition problem?
Posted 21 September 2003 - 05:25 PM
I want to mount a usb harddrive which is partitioned with a logical partition in windows. I get the error blabla (aren't you trying to mount an extended partition, instead of some logical partition inside? ) The answer is yes I think, but how do I mount this logical partition of the usb harddrive?
TNX in advance!!

# mount -t vfat /dev/sdaX /mnt/wherever
X = 1-4 Primary partition. 5 or greater Logical partition.
What you most likely have is your first primary partition is a extended partition
which has been divided in logical partitions. so in this case your first partition
would be /dev/sda5.
to view partitions try
# fdisk /dev/sda
<p> to view actual partitions on disk.
