External HDD problem


Recommended Posts

I recently installed a copy of Mandriva linux on my laptop, and everything works great. It automatically detects all of my thumb drives but theres one problem. Whenever I try to connect my external HDD it says that it is unable to mount the HDD. My question is: is there something I could do to get linux to see the HDD?

i'm pretty sure that mandriva linux would have NTFS drivers by default

if for some reason it doesn't, you can make sure that your disk is being detected properly by using Mandriva's graphical disk management tool

you should be able to see it as one of your hard drives
