itnet7Thanks dantalizing, sounds similar15:40
itnet7reya276: what has changed on your system?15:40
reya276nothing, I think what happen was that the external drive I had before broke so I replaced it and now it is malfunctioning15:41
itnet7ah15:41
reya276could be because the ID changed15:41
reya276so now even when I try to mount a USB drive it fails15:41

reya276so I can't create a startup disk or anything15:42
itnet7with the correct id?15:42
reya276no, want to help me with that15:42
itnet7Sure, give me a sec15:42
reya276I would not even know how to obtain the ID15:42
reya276I actually need to fix it that drive so that I can re-start backing up my system15:43
reya276I also wanted to partition that new drive so I can install Kubuntu 10.10 on it but I can due to this issue15:44
