OK! strange topic title but this is crazy....
I have installed Debian 7 Wheezy netinstall on a USB flash drive to save hard drive Connections in computer...
On this drive I let Debian format the whole USB and sda1, sda2, sda3 were created.
I didn't have any other drives connected at the time...and Webmin sees these drives as sda1 etc.
I then connected 3x3TB drives and formatted them with gparted and gpt. Now gparted sees my drives as.
/dev/sdd1 is the USB with sdd1 sdd2 and my swap sdd5
Now in fstab sda1 sda2 and sdd5 have been assigned to the USB and so when I try to mount the sda1 2.73 drive as d2p1 in my mounts the above message comes up...not so strange but how do I get around this problem?
When I try to add the mount the drive comes up as SATA Devices A, B, and C
OK! Solved it....God you live and learn...
Well, I Went to partitions on local disks and sure enough the problem was there...
For some reason SATA Disk A had been assigned a mount Point in /media/(as USB0)?
I checked fstab and sure enough it was there as well...find it a bit strange especially as no drives apart from the USB were connected when I installed Debian, so why did fstab get such a strange mount?
I unmounted and rebooted and could assign my disks....
