Mounting external drive help needed #44200
I bought a 250gb SSD and a SATA to USB3 cable which allows me to plug it in to any usb 3.0 port and use it as an external drive. I tested it with my windows 10 computer and of course worked fine.

I bought it to use with my Raspberry Pi and Stellarmate. I am a newbie to Linux so I don't understand how to get it to mount and become read/writeable so I can have my images saved to it.

When I pull up the device notifier it shows the drive but says "you are not authorized to mount this device.

That is as far as I can go without help. I don't want to mess it up.

What I was thinking of doing is installing the packages that allow Raspberry linux to read/write to NTSF drives that way I could unplug it from the raspberry and plug it into any windows PC to download the images.

Thanks

Mounting external drive help needed #44203
Hi,

I can think of 3 ways to do that quite easily..

1) Automatically mounted when Pi is booted : sudo nano /etc/fstab
2) Manually mounted : sudo mount /dev/sdb?? ~/directoryName
3) Mounted with a udev rule : /lib/udev/rules.d/

But I think it would be better to use FAT32 instead of NTFS, just my opinion.
If I get some time tomorrow or the weekend I can give you a example to get you going.

Br,

That would be great! For example the 3 choices you gave me might as well been another language. I guess that is exactly what it is. :)

Mounting external drive help needed #44231
First of all I don't use Stellarmate myself and is a bit confused why it says "you are not authorized to mount this device" ? If the USB3 cable is recognized by the system it should mount in /media/USERNAME/VolumeLable and should be visible as a disc drive.

Anyway, let's get some info from the device...

Start up your Pi without the disc..
Start a terminal window.. (maybe keyboard shortcut : Alt+Ctrl+T)
Enter the command : tail -f /var/log/syslog
Press a couple of "Enter" to get some new empty lines..
Insert the USB3 SSD and there will be some lines of text rolling by.. then when the text stops take a copy of all that text and paste in the forum.
That info will contain the info needed to see what is going on when Stellarmate is trying to mount the drive.

That's all for now :)

Well perhaps I was doing something incorrectly because while previously I was unable to access the drive as mentioned in my original post now it has zero issues. Regardless, the following is your requested info.

The log looks good to me :) and if it's working then no need to fix anything :)
Not sure if you did anything wrong but we can call it a glitch :)
