| On the hdd there are two partitions, the first with reiserfs the second

| After attaching the hdd the dmesg output was:
| usb 2-1.3: new full speed USB device using address 5
| Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
| scsi0 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices

| ~ /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0: p1 p2
| Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0

| Now I tried to do a fdisk /dev/sda and after some time came the message:
Just a last addendum:
I did not succed in mounting it from MacOS. First I saw the directories
but when I tried to open one Finder hung and I could not even reboot but
only shut down! When I booted from the Norton Utilities CD it worked
only when the external hdd was not attached. Otherwise it just worked
and worked and worked... So I suppose I lost everything and will have to
try to reformat it - if it works.
| No partition map exists
| for both hdd and memory stick. The strange thing is that in MacOS X I
| can read the vfat-partitions. So I don't understand what happened.
| Thanks for your answer.

| | Hi,
| | What filesystem is using the external HD? Do you have loaded the support
| | for it? What says dmesg after plugin the HD? I usually found a problem
| | with externat devices usings VFAT fs, the suport for cp437, that some
| | people trend to disable. Another thing to check is the master/slave
| | configuration of de HD inside de USB enclosure (if you hace built
| | the USB HDD), it must be master.
| | Bye.
