Hi experts,

I am getting the error message – Failed to mount “New Volume”, while opening a hard disk volume from the file manager.

Failed to mount “New Volume

Failed to mount “New Volume”.

DBus error org.gtk. Private. RemoteVolumeMonor.Failed:

An operation is already pending.

Close

However, it opens without any discrepancy and enables me to access all the files.

Would you please help me regarding the error message? I want to get a remedy for this.

Thanks.

Thanks in advance.

Most of the time this pending operation means the computer needs a restart. So before trying anything else try restarting the computer. Then try again to mount the new volume.

If the problem still persist format the volume then restart the computer. This should solve the issue if not your hard drive might be having too many bad sections on that particular volume that cannot be repaired.

I believe you are using a Linux operating system, and this will not be resolved just by restarting your PC. If you are able to use the Terminal application, try running the following steps:

  1. Launch "gconf-editor" and go to "apps/nautilus/preference" and uncheck "media_automount" and "media_automount_open".
  2. Open GParted to locate the id of the location your device at "dev/sdf1"
  3. Go to the Terminal application and run the following commands:

    • sudo mount -t ext3 -o rw,users /dev/sdf1 /media/(id of your device)
    • sudo umount /media/(id of your device)
  4. Remove or unplug your device
  5. Lastly re-enable nautilus (refer to step 1)
  6. Plug or attach your device
