I recently installed 18.04 onto a new machine and I wanted to move an old 4TB secondary internal HHD to it. I removed the drive from the old computer (after powering it down) and placed it in an external enclosure I had lying around. After plugging it into the new 18.04 box though the drive is not recognized.
And when firing up gparted I’m confronted with this:
Invalid argument during seek for read on /dev/sdb
sudo hdparm -N /dev/sdb
max sectors = 7814037168/12631728(18446744072933654192?), HPA setting seems invalid (buggy kernel device driver?)
I know the drive was formatted as ext4 on the old 14.04 box using gparted and was mounted using fstab in /Server. I’m not sure where to go from here. I figured it would be simple to move this non-system drive used for media from one computer to another. I have the data backed up but would prefer not to have to go through recovery unless absolutely necessary.
