Which OS reformatted the D:\ drive ? ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to mount linux

Maybe if you'd formatted it with Mandriva it would recognise it. (XP can always take ownership of a drive - dunno about Linux).


Just a stab in the dark.

In Mandriva 2008, you will need to mount the drive...

by Peconet Tietokoneet In reply to mount linux

When you mount the drive in Mandriva it should ask you which format you want, just select NTFS.
Hope all works out for you.

Here is the answer...

by amoeba In reply to mount linux

You would use the mount command. If it is a sata or scsi drive, the command would look like this:
mount /dev/sdx (x is the position, ie:first sata is a, second sata is b, etc)
For an IDE drive the command looks like this:
mount /dev/hdx (x is the position primary master=a primary slave=b secondary master=c secondary slave=d).

Hope this helps!
