Thanks! I have pass the command: mount /dev/sbd1 /mnt/external
 then what I should do now? when I entered the directory /mnt/external, it has "lost+found", there is nothing else. Is there something wrong there? Thanks again for your help!

You probably need to pass it the filesystem type, as the error suggests. The option will depend on how the usb drive was formatted, but I suspect it was made for Windows. In that case, try:

> mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/external

If you do a "man mount" you will get all mount options.

Good luck,
David

 When I type: mount /dev/sda /mnt/external
 it says: mount: you must specify the filesystem type
 
 What's the problem? Thanks!

this is more a linux related question.

Normally fedora or suse should automount external (usb or firewire devices).

If it dont work try following:

- Plug in and switch the harddisk on
- Take a look at dmesg (su and then dmesg) to see if your pc knows the
hardware
- Manual mount your harddisk (something like mkdir /mnt/usbhd
mount /dev/sdx1 /mnt/usbhd)
