I have been using a raspberry PI since more than one year, with two USB 500GB IDE hard drives as a NAS/torrent box. Yesterday, one of the two hard drives started a repetitive rattling noise, and I could not read data from it through
I assumed it was broken, so I opened the box the raspberry and the hard drives were in, connected the first HD to my laptop using the IDE to USB adapter I had. Windows wasn't able to mount it. I really cannot remember which FS this HD is using, so I tried to mount it on a Debian Virtual Machine. The image below shows the error I get. I have no idea what it means, what I understand is that Debian does not recognize which FS the hard disk is using.
This is the result of
fdisk -l (only the part regarding the mentioned HDD):
