You could try the lsusb command to list all usb connected devices. It sounds like the cleanest and surest solution, and I really dont care about the data I guess, most of it I have anyway -. But you agree with philinux about Disk Utility, which I’d never seen before: No device connected is produced. You can just click “create partition” and make a maximum size partition with no problems hopefully giving you nearly all gb back BUT it’s got an unknown partition table, I would recommend formatting the WHOLE disk as MBR. Hey thanks for all the help, now I dont want to mix and match procedures here, so:
I wouldn’t have got there on my own in a long time! It sounds like the cleanest and surest solution, and I really dont care about the data I guess, most of it I have anyway. Product NOT fully recommended – more expensive than better alu-based models, and seemingly almost non-reopenable plastic clips rather than screws.
I’m fine with losing all data. After plugging the drive type dmesg tail and post the output here, this should show us what the machine does when it detects the hard drive.
Based on you already using this disk it must have been formatted a one stage. Sorry not very good at hopping from forum to reply and back and managing quotes and not losing reply halfway through, so we’re a bit clunky. Any other order will fail. Thanks trevverb. Correct me if I’m wrong people?

I’m afraid I am going to use that word again, can you post the output of mounting it manually fdisk -l Find drive location e. Did you try this on another machine? It may be possible to recreate the partition table, however I have not actually tried doing this.
I’m telling you, for your own sake DOUBLE, TRIPLE check the drive you are formatting, though it’s hard to get it wrong if you know the size of the drive and it looks like you won’t make a mistake, it usually happens to people who are used to formatting and can rush.
Ok, this “should” be a failsafe method. The following tables list USB devices that have been successfully or unsuccessfully below tested with smartmontools.
Hey thanks for all the help, now I dont want to mix and match procedures here, so: Totally fried on the subject, I yelp if I see the word mount. Case rather solid and good cable, though. If you can not find a way to recreate the table a format will be the quickest and easiest way, however you will lose your data.
But you agree with philinux about Disk Utility, which I’d never seen before: Right let clear things up. Related datasheets don’t mention SAT.
It will be interesting to compare the outputs of these two with the disk utility screen. Ok this is strange now, it looks like this drive is formatted for a Linux install. Is this a NTFS formated drive? Ife if any hardy person would care to speak to me about how qlcor make all settings right so that when I plug it in, it appears on system, and I can use it.

It looks like it is being recognised, just not as a hard drive. I was thinking a reformat maybe but I am not confident which drive is the correct one or if the data is important.
Disconnect the usb drive and iee lsusb Now plug the hard drive in and type lsusb again lsusb Please post the output from both times.
