OK Don.

I am sorry that I haven't been able to help you.  Perhaps another Member will have the solution, and if I find it I'll let you know.

"You must log in to access"
It looks like it's asking you to access your router to validate your changes but I recognise only "Password" - I've never had to enter Username or Domain on my system. 

I'll look through your posts and have another think. 


Many thanks, Sezo.


No, I think not.  One can select the boot order, and it might be interesting to boot into the BIOS to see if your new disk is listed as an optional HDD to boot from. 

Probably, yes, but Linux will cope with that.  One can use fdisk to specify a range of formats, all of which Linux can use.

Sezo - Sorry, I missed your name on your posts. 

Neither fdisk -l nor df list sdb on Emp's computer so I can't see how to create partitions unless the drive can be seen.  If you can advise him, please jump in and take over.


It does indeed with the "long" option.
Please try
Code: [Select]
mount | grep "/dev/sd"
and post the whole output.

The fdisk -l command doesn't list partitions, I think.  It didn't list your sda partitions.
Please execute
Code: [Select]
mount | grep "/dev/sd"
and report the full result.

In the Host box type the printer IP address that you found earlier, click on the "Find" button and report the results.   

It does indeed.
First of all, try
Code: [Select]
mount | grep "/dev/sd"
to check if it's mounted somewhere unexpected.

That's interesting:  fdisk recognises the new disk but df doesn't. 
I don't have any ideas at present, but will have a think.  Perhaps another Member can help.

Disk /dev/sdb: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes, 976773168 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
This looks good.
Now please execute my suggestion:
Code: [Select]
 df | grep "/dev/sd"
and post the output here. It's best to copy the output and paste it here, rather than just typing it.

Don't worry, Don.  Just try Find Network printer which is, after all, what we want it to do, and post the choices it gives you.
