Thread: HDD fails to start

  1. #1

    Default HDD fails to start

    A new WD Elements SE Portable 2 TB USB 2.0 external hard drive has one exFAT partition (preformatted) and works on Windows XP fine. I want to make ext3 partition on it but it is not recognised when plugged.
    Code:
    fdisk: cannot open /dev/sdb: Input/output error
    When plugged LED on HD lights and starts flashing after 5 sec. Drive starts, I can hear normal hdd sounds. It is plugged to USB 2.0 port on the back og the motherboard using its onw original (short) WD cable (no extend).

    Try to open the partitioner module in YaST, if you haven't done so already, and see if its detected there.

    No, I did not update firmware. It still works on Win XP.

    Could it be your USB port(s) or anything else hard-ware related? Do you dual boot openSUSE/WinXP or is XP on another computer?

    BTW, could there be some security lock involved?
