redhat es4 stopped recognizing external hard drive, gives errors mentioned when plugged in.
Posted on 2008-10-03
I have been using this external hard drive on redhat es4 for about 6 months now. I had formatted it for ext3 filey system, everything was working fine, but just recently it stopped working. I reformatted the ext hard drive with mkfs.ext3 command and device worked fine and its stopped again. I was however able to retrieve all the data using a third party software on a windows machine. Trying to figure out what I did, I remember unplugging it during a reboot after unmounting it though. When the machine went down, I unplugged it and plugged it back in after a while. I tried to enable some of the kernal modules but nothing is working. Appreciate your help.
