Heh, I tried this, but I was writing DISPLAY=0 (without the colon). Thanks very much for your help :-)

Once again, thank you for the amount of time and effort you put into helping me. You must have the patience of a saint.

@derobert: I'm sorry, it's my fault, I've been trying to mount the wrong disk! sdb is already mounted, as indicated by lvs. However, I'm still unable to mount /dev/sda1 with mount -t ext4 /dev/sda1 /mnt. The error message is "mount: mounting /dev/sda1 on /mnt failed: Invalid argument".

I realise it was a bad idea to do things this way, but I was losing a lot of time sending emails back and forth to Synology's tech support who weren't very helpful. I figured if I formatted one drive I could run data recovery on the other, which I successfully did, but I have around 80k unsorted files which I'm not looking forward to sorting. If I could get the drive mounted I could just copy the data to the formatted drive manually with the directory tree intact.

@derobert: no, I don't think I did recreate the array with the right options. I was following the advice of someone on the Synology forums who replied to someone with a similar issue, can't seem to find it now, though. I've added the /proc/mounts result to the post. Note that the /dev/vg* stuff is how the NAS mounts storage usually.

Yes, the /mnt directory exists. @derobert: first gives me brw-rw---- 1 root root 9, 3 Jan 18 2006 /dev/md3, second is nothing and third, there's no messages in dmesg pertaining to the failed mount.
