Unable to use ext3 partitions anyway

  • Nobody/Anonymous


    i've just got an external enclosure for my 120 GB disk. There are 2 ext3 partitions on it...

    When I try to mount it, i get this error 0xF8DA000C (already mentioned in the forum...)

    When I execute the suggested command
    /usr/local/sbin/e2fsck /dev/disk2s1

    i get following output:
    e2fsck 1.39 (29-May-2006)
    /dev/disk2s1: recovering journal
    /dev/disk2s1 has been mounted 65 times without being checked, check forced.
    Pass 1: Checking inodes, blocks, and sizes
    Pass 2: Checking directory structure
    Pass 3: Checking directory connectivity
    Pass 4: Checking reference counts
    Pass 5: Checking group summary information
    Segmentation fault

    The problem remains...

    Hopefully you can help me,

    thx in advance

      Hello again!

      i solved part of the problem...
      i made fscheck on my linux-computer and it seems like it repaired something on the drives...

      but i still got the problem, that i am not able to use the gui.

      when mounting the drives manually with the terminal i have to restart the finder app so i will see the drives. I already found a thread with someone having the exact same problem...

      GUI is out of sync with the command line stuff.  It has been mentioned in several posts, fyi.

      You can use Shift-Apple-G  (from menu  Go --> Go to Folder)  and key in the path for your mount point.  Then drive willshow up in finder etc.

      Or you can simply type "open <mountpoint>" to have finder recognize the disk.
