Re: New USB hard drive problems - errors present, drive itself works ok

I'm out of tricks, but new posts keep appearing about this subject frequently.

Re: New USB hard drive problems - errors present, drive itself works ok

Ok, I went through this thread meticulously and found that the cause of the problems (as fas as I can see for now) was a dodgy USB port. Now I can copy massive 14GB folders with thousands of files without crashing.

I still have not figured out why the properties of the folders can differ so much on the file count when comparing internal and external hard drives. Sometimes there is a discrepancy of approximately 100 files. However, when I look into the folders and compare them side by side in two separate thunar windows, no files seem to be missing.

I'll keep testing for a while and then may (hopefully!) be able to declare this solved.

Re: New USB hard drive problems - errors present, drive itself works ok

The newest setback lead to problems such as the first one in this thread: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=125234 . Cannot mount second time; as in anytime after unmounting the "initial" (after re-formatted in windows) mounting and usage of the drive. When plugging imto the windows computer, the file system appears corrupted requiring re-format.

Is there a ntfs-3g -specific safe unmount command?

No. I've always used umount and the ntfs-3g man page shows no special command.

The problem with remounting is something I've never experienced.

Re: New USB hard drive problems - errors present, drive itself works ok

I got the same problem with external WD 320 GB drive connected to USB port. FIrst mounting without any problems. After copying few mixed files and umounting it's impossible to mount the drive again.

ntfs_mst_post_read_fixup_warn: magic: 0x00000030  size: 1024   usa_ofs: 1  usa_count: 65535: Zły argument
Record 6 has no FILE magic (0x30)
Failed to open inode FILE_Bitmap: Błąd wejścia/wyjścia
Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1': Błąd wejścia/wyjścia
NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a
SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows
then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very
important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate
it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g.
/dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation
for more details.

Drive always has been mounted with:

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/dysk

and umounted with

umount /media/dysk

Under windows 7 drive is working fine without any problems.

Anyone has a solution?

pretty old thread here.  Maybe it would be wise to start a new one with a link to this one.

The issue still isn't solved so in my opinion there is no any sense to create a new topic.
