Ubuntu linux machine can not write to connected usb hard drive

Hi, I bought a WRT610N router.  I connected my USB drive to it, and it is working fine with my Vista Machine.  However, my Ubuntu linux machine can not write to it.  It can read it great, but it can not write. If I connect the drive directly to the Ubuntu device, it reads and writes fine. 
I've set all the permissiosn and such in the router setup.  I didn't need to do anything in Vista.  Is there something I need to do in Ubuntu?    I'm new to Linux so Imay have missed something.
Thank you.

Create a new admin user and give all permissions oj your router and check if you can write to it on your Ubuntu linux machine...

    Yes.

    Possibly by using an Airport Express, but depends on what type of port connection the printer requires.

  • Your firmware can not be updated because the hard drive...SMC 1.3

    Hi all !

    This morning I saw the update for the SMC firmware (1.3).

    Your firmware can not be updated because the hard drive partition scheme may not be supported. You must be booted from a GUID partiton or RAID scheme.

    I thought Boot Camp could be involved becauseI know it's the only thing related to the EFI.
    I searched on internet, and Ifound nothing. There was a solution in order to reset the partition table, but the tool is no longer available. The link on on the application explains that I have to reformat my macbook pro. I find a bit weird to make this , I can't spend hours for backup / restore just because the SMC update does not work. have you any lead for me ?
    Thanks ,

    Have you tried this:
    Repairing the Hard Drive and Permissions
    Boot from your OS X Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Installer menu (Utilities menu for Tiger and Leopard.) After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list. In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive. If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the installer. Now restart normally.
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior (4.0 for Tiger, and 4.1 for Leopard) and/or TechTool Pro (4.6.1 for Leopard) to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.

    Have you tried running dosfsck on the device? Of course, be sure that you unmount the usb drive and verify the dev file of the relevant partition.
    Something like:
    dosfsck /dev/sdb1 <----replace with correct dev file!!
    to see what the problem is and then
    dosfsck -a /dev/sdb1
    Of course, I would strongly encourage you to backup all data on the drive first.

  • I can not transfer date from one hard drive to another, I keep getting an error because I have two of the same file names and one file name is in caps and I cant change the file name

    can not transfer date from one hard drive to another, I keep getting an error because I have two of the same file names and one file name is in caps and I cant change the file name. My original external has an error and needs to be reformatted but I dont want to lose this informations its my entire Itunes library.

    Sounds like the source drive is formatted as case sensitive and the destination drive is not. The preferred format for OS X is case insensitive unless there is a compelling reason to go case sensitive.
    Why can't you change the filename? Is it because the source drive is having problems?  If so is this happening with only one or two or a few files? If so the best thing would be to copy those over individually and then rename them on the destination drive.
    If it is more then you can do manually and you can't change the name on the source you will have to reformat the destination as case sensitive.
    Btw this group is for discussion of the Support Communities itself, you;d do better posting to Lion group. I'll see if a host will move it.

  • Suddenly can't write to an external hard drive that I have been using consistently

    I have been using a WD 1 terabyte external hard drive to transfer movie files between 2 MBP's and suddenly I cannot write any files to the HD.  The error message is that the external hard "cannot be modified" if I try to add any files.  I have tried the same hard drive on another MBP and it works fine and I can write to the hard drive (with the aid of Paragon NTFS for Mac OS).  I have Paragon NTFS on my computer as well and have been able to write to the hard drive previously. I spoke to Western Digital phone support and told them the problem and noted that the icon for the hard drive is grey with a clock on my computer and is orange on the other MBP.  They explained that the icon change was due to Time Machine on my computer.  I currently have Time Machine turned off.
    Of note, I recently upgraded my internal hard drive on my computer to a WD 500 GB internal drive.  Not sure if this will make a difference.  Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,

    Found the issue.  When I changed the internal hard drive, most softward transferred over, but not all.  I had to reinstall the Paragon NTFS and I was then able to write to the external hard drive.  That seemed to solve the problem.

  • Can't see contents of USB hard drive connected to Time Capsule

    Hi. I have a USB hard drive connected to my Time Capsule (which I just got today). I just want to use it as a shared drive, so that the users in my home can use it to access common files (media files, stuff like that).
    The TC's set up is to enable file sharing with accounts. AirPort Disk Guest Access is not allowed.
    When I authenticate as a user via Finder I can see the disk, see that disk space has been used, but can't see the contents. I'm guessing this is because the files that are actually on there belong to some other user.
    Is my guess right? Any suggestions as to how we can all use it as a transfer drive?
    Col

    Fixed it. I connected the USB drive directly to my computer, and dragged the folder into the 'Shared' folder, which Time Capsule had created. The original folder is now visible, which is what I wanted!

  • I can not access everything on External Hard drive

    I switched from PC to MAC and am using an external hard drive to do Time Machine back ups.  I used the hard drive to store pics and other files before on PC, and now that I have used to to store backups can no longer access my other files. 
    Question: How can I access the other files?
    OR
    How can I turn off the time machine backups on this disc (or tell the external drive it is not the back up anymore) so I can get to my pictures?  I think once I do this, I could partitian the drive and use for both... No?

    In Disk Utility, you should see an icon in the drive list representing the external drive. Below that is an icon for each volume on the drive. One of those is the Time Machine backup volume. If there are no others, then there is no other data on the drive, at least none that you can get to.

  • Time Machine: Can I use a smaller external hard drive with larger internal?

    Can I use a 250G external hard drive with and 500G unfilled internal drive with time machine? Or will time machine require I a 500G? I don't plan on filling the internal drive for a long time and don't want to buy a new external drive right now.

    Yes, but you are very likely to get in trouble very quickly.
    The problem is that TimeMachine saves multiple versions of any file modified, and if that file happens to be large, you can quickly fill up your TimeMachine drive such that it is throwing away older versions faster than you would desire.
    Also if your boot drive's storage usage gets even close to the 250GB external drive's capacity, TimeMachine is likely to stop working.
    If possible, I would suggest an external drive that is twice as large as your boot drive, or at least 1.5 times larger.
    I guess you could repartition your boot drive so it is smaller than your external disk so you would be less likely to use more space than could fit on the external.
    Personally, my opinion about backups is that much of my data is impossible to replace (family pictures, etc...), and spending money on backup hardware is a small price to pay for securing those memories. I also try to have it backup in more than one location in more than one way.

  • Can Time Capsule show a connected USB hard drive?

    Hi, I have just purchased 1TB Time Capsule, which supposes to show a external USB connected hard drive. But why there is no drive nor icon shows in Find after it connected to Time Capsule?
    that USB hard drive just works fine with direct connection to my MBP.
    thanks all.

    in the finder, click on the icon of the TC under shared. a connection dialog will appear and you may have to enter your admin password. then click on the folder symbolizing your USB drive
    that USB hard drive just works fine with direct connection to my MBP.
    in case above does not work, check if your drive is formatted for Mac or FAT32. your TC will not recognize NTFS formatted drives ...

  • Incompatibility Issues with connecting USB Hard Drive to Airport Extreme

    Over the last few days i have been fiddling around with my new Airport Extreme Base Station N router. I can connect a printer and use the internet through it seamlessly. I can even share two of my hard drives through a USB hub, however, my Maxtor 500 gb One Touch 4 HDD will not connect with my macbook through AEBS. It is only this drive that is not working with AEBS and it is the one i need to be connected and sharing. If i plug my 500gb Maxtor directly into my macbook it works fine, i can read all the files. This drive is formated as Mac OS Extended (journaled).
    I am about to give up on this because i have tried everything:
    1. Reformatted HDD
    2. Downgraded Firmware
    3. Searched Forums for advice
    4. Reconfigured AEBS in, i think, every way possible
    So, these are most of the things ive tried and so far there is no solution in sight. I have one hypothesis: my particular HDD (Maxtor 500gb One Touch 4) is incompatible with AEBS at this time, but it is possible that a future firmware update could fix this.
    Does anyone have any advice? I'm lost and disappointed. Please help, thanks.

    Chances are pretty good that the power draw of your external drive is just at the "tipping point" for what the USB port on the Extreme can deliver. Powered USB hubs are inexpensive and should help in this situation.

  • AE extreme dies after connecting USB hard drive and killing it too!!!!!

    I finally got around to connecting an external LaCie Rugged hard drive to my AE via the USB port on the back of the AE. Both devices were working properly before I did this. I was intending to activate the drive as a shared drive or a Time Capsule drive. I then opened the Time Machine menu and opened the Preferences menu item and tried to select a backup disk. No disk was found.
    Shortly after this step I noticed that the AE light had turned off. I plugged the hard disk into the Mac using a Firewire connection and it was DEAD. Disk Utility will not list the disk. The AE hard boot does not work so it is DEAD too. $400 worth of devices now DEAD and beyond warranty.
    Yes I now realize I should not have expected the AE to treat an USB drive as a Time Capsule. Anyone else done this and had the same loss of AE and hard drive?

    Hi DP,
    The first computer I could actually put my hands on was a DEC PDP8. This was after the punchcard stack era had waned. Booted it up using front panel switches to input binary code to start the tape drives and load the programs. After that came the Data General model that was just as dumb but smaller and noisier. Computers were a pain in the * until I got my first Mac Plus in '86.
    Why would a USB hard drive fry the Airport Extreme?

  • Satellite L20-100 can be booted from external USB hard drive?

    I recently bought Toshiba Satellite L20-100 and I wonder if:
    1. is there any possibility to boot this machine from external usb hard drive?
    2. it is possible to attach another internal hard drive?
    Supposing that the both answers above are 'no', how can I solve the following problem: I need hdd space, I need to boot 3 separate Wxp Operating Systems onto the same machine (Toshiba Satellite L20-100).

    Booting from external USB HD - "No" would be the official, mcrsoft sponsored, answer. However, it is possible. Not easy but it can be done. I've seen it done with my own eyes and there are guides how to do this. Just look for it with search engine. But if you have enough disk space you better do what was suggested here - create 3 partitions and use boot manager.
