[SOLVED]1 Terabyte USB drive: Unable to mount My Passport, Error mounting: mount: unknown filesystem

Postby Rocksockdoc » 2012/04/23 12:27:52

I've been using this "My Passport" for about 3 months on Windows XP and Ubuntu machines so I know it's working just fine.
But when I plug it into the Centos 6 laptop, I simply get the error message:
"Unable to mount My Passport, Error mounting: mount: unknown filesystem type ntfs"

Any idea what the problem is?

Wow. That was right on the money!

I barely understood anything at the wiki for TipsAndTricks/NTFS for CentOS but ... the good news, is the very first command worked!
yum install fuse fuse-ntfs-3g

I have no idea 'why' it worked - nor if I needed both packages, but, whatever 'magic' it performed, now I can simply plug in my USB hard drive and it automounts on my desktop.

Thanks!

Marking this thread [SOLVED] for posterity.


Thanks for marking it solved.

I would do that if only I could find the button to do so.

DO I just change the title to mark it solved?
Or is there a button which does it?
No big deal ...

Thanks for all the help!
