I always get this error message:

Error mounting /dev/sda2 at /media/pi/PIHDD: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000" "/dev/sda2" "/media/pi/PIHDD"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda2, missing codepage or helper program, or other error

   In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
   dmesg | tail or so.

And I really don't know how I should solve this problem. How can I resolve this?

  • Have you checked the syslog as advised (dmesg | tail in your terminal)? Is there any relevant output there? – Aurora0001 Mar 21 '18 at 17:03
  • Is the hard disc really formatted with NTFS? Can you mount the hard disc with Windows? – Uwe Plonus Mar 21 '18 at 17:26
  • What kind of docking station? USB? How do you supply the HDD with power? – Fabian Mar 21 '18 at 20:43
  • I guess you are using raspbian. Can you please add a proper tag? You are trying to mount a Microsoft ntfs file system. I suspect there is a problem with its driver. With journalctl -e you should get more information. Please edit your question and give us the output from apt list ntfs-3g and grep ntfs /proc/filesystems. – Ingo Mar 21 '18 at 21:30
