Hello, new user to Fedora and Linux in general.

I am mostly enjoying it, but am having a few problems.

I cannot mount my external Hard Drive, or Data DVDs.

Here are links to the error messages I keep getting.

Any help would be very much appreciated. :)

try


sudo yum update


there was a big dbus bug that has since been fixed so maybe updating will fix it?

For the (UDF) data DVD, have you installed the udftools package?

Can we see the one for the hard drive? That image you linked to is for the DVD error message :D

Please check https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=466948

I would say an update should fix your problem.

When I typed "sudo yum update" in the command line it tells me that there are no packages that need

updating, yet still I can't mount my hard drive.

Likewise I installed the "udftools" package, but I still keep getting the error message for the UDF disk. :(

Thank you all very much for your willingness to help.

What operating system was the DVD created on? If it was done on MS Vista then it may be a problem :(

I had the same exact problem.

After installation, run a:

yum -y update
And take a nap:)

If you're still having trouble with the UDF DVD, what is the output of this command at a console:

modinfo udf

And the disks in question were made in Windows Vista.

For the hard drive have you tried using the "force" option as suggested or preferably unmounting it properly in windows beforehand?

Now that would have been the smart thing to do. :rolleyes:

Thanks, problem solved!.:D

Oh no! There is a bug report in Bugzilla here:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=vista-udf

If there are messages like that in comment #41 that mention pseudooverwrite partition
is not implemented then there is no solution yet - that is UDF v2.60 and is not supported in the Linux kernel yet :(
