Firewire disk mount
on Aug 2, 2005 at 2:13:54 pm

My firewire drive shows up in the Disk Utility with its partition but it will not mount. I have used Disk warrior and it says it cannot fix the issue. Since both Disk Utility and Disk Warrior see the Drive I am wondering if there is a way to either force it to mount or change it's header file to mount properly using the Terminal. Or if anyone out there has some other advice...

Is there data you need on it? If not, just reformat it. If so, try going into the terminal and seeing if it is mounted there.

cd /Volumes
hit enter and then on the next line
and hit enter

or just
ls /Volumes
hit enter

If it is not there, you might be able to force it. From Disk Utility look up the Mount Point (I think that is what it is called there). Or try the mount command.
then enter

It should tell you what is recognized by the system.

If this all shows the partition, let us know and we can go from there. At any rate, it would be a copy all data off the disk and reformat it kind of thing.
