3TB Usb Drive Won’t Mount

Stumbled upon this somewhat old post, but I’ll offer a suggestion nonetheless.

Perhaps you don’t have GPT support enabled in the kernel (CONFIG_EFI_PARTITION)
IIRC. In the dmesg output you posted, there’s also no log entry showing the detected partitions, leading me to suspect that the kernel doesn’t know about GPT partitions.

Hope this helps anyone,

Finally had a chance to try this out, and it works totally on my Fedora16 laptop. But not on the EL6.2 server….

Please see the details in the manual (type: man ntfs-3g).

Example: ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/windows

[root@gpfsnode8 ~]# ls -l /dev/sda1
ls: cannot access /dev/sda1: No such file or directory
[root@gpfsnode8 ~]#

And this I just can’t get my head around, why is /dev/sda1 not created? /dev/sda shows up as expected and the kernel even recognizes that there is
a sda1 partition but the device entry isn’t created.

Anybody able to help me here?
