Ubuntu – Unable to mount: exit code 1


I am trying to mount some of my hard drive and USB but getting this error

Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with:
mount: only root can mount /dev/sdd1 on /media/sdd1

how can I fix this?

There is no drive by the name of /dev/sdd1 and no /media/sdd1 cause when I try to unmount/detach it I get:

root@sysadmin-MS-7592:/home/sysadmin# udisks --unmount /dev/sdd1
Unmount failed: Device is not mounted

root@sysadmin-MS-7592:/home/sysadmin# udisks --detach /dev/sdd1
Detach failed: Device is not a drive

Best Answer

  • Mount the drive by running the below command,

    sudo mount /dev/sdd1 /media/sdd1

    Make sure that you created a sdd1 directory inside /media.
