I have a 40gb harddisk with 2 windows(fat32) partitions and 1 fbsd partition.
I am using fbsd 5.2.1(with devfs).
/dev/ad0 tells me the first partition on my harddisk is a windows fat32
partition (as it should be). When i try to mount it with:
"mount -t msdos /dev/ad0s1 /mnt/win_c" or
"mount -t msdosfs /dev/ad0s1 /mnt/win_c" or
"mount_msdosfs /dev/ad0s1 /mnt/win_c"
I get the error:
msdosfs: /dev/ad0s1: Invalid argument
I tried a script from freesbie that tries to mount all mountable devices.
It identifies ad0s1 as windows partition and tries to mount it but also fails - the error the script gets i don`t know, but i assume it is the same
one. I don`t have a /dev/ad0s1e.
Now the real weird and annoying thing:
i can mount the extended windows partition(/dev/ad0s5) with:
mount -t msdosfs /dev/ad0s5 /mnt/win_d
without any erros.
I don`t know why but hopefully some of you guys know ;).
