Having a laptop with 240GB SSD, and I removed my dvd drive to put a second SSD (240GB) in DVD slot.

I see my second SSD in the BIOS, also in my file manager in Debian, but when I click on it, it does nothing, as option with ''right click mouse'' I see ''mount'' but I get an error fail to mount 240GB volume - no object for D-bus interface.

I've already formatted and partitioned it (GPT and Ext4). So now, I don't know what to do to use it?


thank you very much


Here solution for me, we can close.

EDIT: So now I have acces to open it with those commands ;

sudo mkdir /media/HDD
sudo mount /dev/sda /media/HDD

but it is as ''root'' so I can't create a new folder or something like that.

EDIT2: Got it with;

sudo chown -R james:james /media/HDD

    You should not use sda, but create & format a partition like sda1. Many tools expect partitions and will complain. And you now have what is called a SuperFloppy as the old floppy drives were small & did not have partitions. – oldfred Mar 8 at 22:08

Did you do (try) all this steps: expecially create the mouint Point


ls -la /etc/fstab

-rw-rw-r-- 1 root root 594 Okt 27 15:40 /etc/fstab

Put the uuid manuelly in: sudo gedit /etc/fstab

  • not with CLI but I used GPARTED – James78 Mar 8 at 18:50
  • I tried it final with your link, but got errors; sudo mount /disk2 mount: /disk2: can't find in /etc/fstab. ~$ sudo echo "UUID=d8c45458-57fc-43e6-92ea-ab4644fd6682 /disk2 ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1" >> /etc/fstab bash: /etc/fstab: Permission denied – James78 Mar 8 at 19:03
  • step 6 should have put it in your fstab; nor errormessage when you did? – GarfieldBonn Mar 8 at 19:11
  • it does not work, I got error during that step, so nothing is in etc/fstab – James78 Mar 8 at 19:22
