mount_hfs: Invalid argument
Authored by: msmithstubbs on Nov 30, '04 08:03:02AM

I use:

mount -t hfs -r /dev/disk2 /Volumes/snafu

and I get:

mount_hfs: Invalid argument

I checked system profiler and my firewire drive is definitely disk2. And yes, it is HFS (actually I think it is HFS+, does that make a difference.) I did try with NTFS but that didn't work either.

any suggestions? Thanks!

Coming from Linux side, I cannot really guarantee that what I am saying is at all true, but I would suspect that disk2 refers to the entire disk. Something like disk2s<something> might refer to the correct partition.
